Members must pay in a timely manner for any event or activity that they sign up for. For example, payment by a specified date to confirm a booking for a day out; payment for a meal in a restaurant at the time the bill is issued.
Our Organization is run by our Members for our Members. Each Branch is managed by a small volunteer Committee of Representatives and the overall organization is managed by a small volunteer Main Committee of S.P.A. Officers which includes the Chair and Vice Chair. Bimonthly Committee Meetings with S.P.A. Officers and Branch Committee Members are held to discuss management issues.
Members are encouraged to organise at least one event each year as their contribution to their S.P.A. Branch programme of activities. This is not mandatory, however it would be most welcome. Committee members are always available to help members organise an event.
Members are welcome to discuss management issues with Branch Committee Members and at the Annual General Meeting and Party (AGM). At the AGM & Party prior to dancing the night away after a buffet supper, the management of S.P.A. is briefly reviewed by the Chair and members can discuss and vote on key management issues. Decisions are taken by majority vote.
Members have full voting rights at our annual Branch elections for Committee Members and our S.P.A. AGM & Party.
Members are eligible to volunteer for election as S.P.A. Officers on the Main Committee and Branch Committees
Members can attend any Branch weekly Social Evening and participate in any Branch activity and event unless, participation is limited to Branch only due to the limitation of either numbers or space, such as a member's birthday party at their house.
As single people we know how difficult it can be for some people to approach new groups and go to social events by yourself. Our Branch Representatives will arrange to meet and greet new people and introduce them to members of their Branch. You need never feel alone with the S.P.A. Singles Social Group.
Our members know how it feels to be worried about trying to mix with a new group of people. Our members are always there to help you become part of a friendly group at our Social Evenings and will welcome you when you participate in any activity or event you wish to undertake.
Our members will tell you that since joining S.P.A. Singles Social Group they have been able to expand their social circle of friends, made life long friends and now enjoy a full and interesting social life. Come and find our for yourself. See TESTIMONIALS
