Midland Hamster Club Committee 2016-17


The committee of the Midland Hamster Club is comprised of the Officers and other committee members. The President and Vice-Presidents are honorary roles that do not have particular duties. These titles are awarded in recognition of a memberís contribution to both the Midland Hamster Club, and the hamster fancy in general. They are also viewed as figureheads for the club.


The other officers have duties that are described below. Other committee members do not have specific roles, but can have a say on matters affecting the MHC during the period between AGMs.


All of the committee members provide their time and expertise for the benefit of the club on a completely voluntary basis.

If any committee members would like any changes made to the listings below, please e-mail webmaster@midlandhamsterclub.co.uk
