Secretary 2014-2017 – Mark Achurch

Why I joined the chorus:
I have always been interested in singing but had very little experience of performing before an audience. I joined a large mixed choir in 2010 and really enjoyed gaining experience. I first saw SWGMC at “Cardiff Mardi Gras” in 2012 and immediately decided to join. I am so glad I did. The last three years have been full of exciting firsts and the choir has become a second family.

Why I ran to be secretary:
I became secretary of the chorus in 2014 and am often the first point of contact for potential new members, people who want to book the choir for their event and other organisations. The work can be time consuming but gives a fascinating insight into the mechanics of booking events and tours.
I also issue regular newsletters to members which contain everything that I would want to know. One of the nicest surprises I had when taking on the job is that occasionally there is fan correspondence to reply to!
