Kernow SSAGO

Who am I?

I am Lexie, and this is my fifth year in SSAGO. I was part of Southampton SSAGO for four years, and am now the Chair of Kernow SSAGO, a new club which I have recently set up for universities within Cornwall.

Why am I running?

I am running for the position of Chair because I really care about SSAGO. It has been a huge part of my life for the past 4 ½ years, and I talk about it constantly. Because I love SSAGO so much, I want to help ensure the longevity of this fantastic organisation. Being elected as Chair will help me ensure future members have the same, amazing experience I have had, hopefully getting them really enthused about SSAGO, Guiding and Scouting. At SSAGO’s 50th Reunion Camp, I really saw the impact SSAGO has had on people’s lives, and I would like to keep this going, allowing SSAGO to continue to grow.

What would I like to achieve?

Although last years exec have made huge progress in securing SSAGOs future, they have only had a year, so it is still a work in progress. Therefore, I would like to continue working through the policy documents with the membership, implementing them.

Why am I suitable?

Having been a member of SSAGO for 4 ½ years now, I feel I have sufficient experience for the position of Chair.

These roles have taught me a range of skills, including how to manage my time effectively, and has given me experience in working as part of a team.

I feel I would make a good Chair as I am really committed to SSAGO. I try my hardest to attend all national events, even making it to Lancaster’s Fantasy Rally all the way from Cornwall, and bringing two others with me! This is my 14th Rally, and I have also attended 3 Ball’s, Witan and Reunion. Because I have attended so many events, I know lots of people within SSAGO, past and present. I have gained so much by being a part of SSAGO, and I would love to share these benefits with others.
