CDS is managed (we use the term losely) by a committee headed by three officers, a chairman or woman, treasurer and secretary.
The committee is elected annually at the AGM and consists of the Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer plus up to seven other elected members (and up to three further members can be co-opted if required).
The commitee also nominates a president for the ensuing year prior to the AGM.
Some committee (or other regular members) take lead roles in particular areas, for example managing club nights, box-office, marketing, and membership records.
All roles and offices are honorary.
