We would like to welcome our new finance manager, Lise Moore. Lise joined the staff team at British Skydiving HQ in Leicester in February. She has wide experience in accounts and finance in the commercial sector as well as in two not-for-profit golf clubs that have strong parallels with British Skydiving – including working with an elected Treasurer, partial exemption from VAT and meetings sometimes taking place in the evenings, as is the case with our Council.
Lise will be Secretary to the new Finance Committee chaired by Tash Higman, Treasurer, and also to the IT Strategy Group which reports to the Finance Committee. Lise said “There is much to do in my new role, which I’m really enjoying. There’s such a buzz among the HQ team as we launch the new membership portal on the web for online renewals. Members’ passion for the sport and the camaraderie of the skydiving community is tangible – including the massive help and support of volunteer members lending their personal skills and competences for the benefit of British Skydiving. It feels as if I’ve joined a big family!”.
