Tapion Sulka has a number of committees that discuss, create, and execute ideas and happenings that benefit the club.
Each committee can independently decide on its activity within the boundaries of the club annual plan and based on instructions from the club Board of Directors. However, significant decisions should be approved by the club Board of Directors. The club hopes for active committee activity and has reserved a small budget for each committee that can be used for expenses from committee meetings.
We want you as a part of our activity! Express your interest or ask more from the board or directly from the relevant committee chair.
Why participate in committees?

Do you like sales? The Finance Committee will give you a shot at practicing B2B sales.
In economy, it is important that our expenses are not greater than our income. Our Finance Committee ensures this at the club, as it is responsible for the annual budget. It also works at increasing the club’s income - engaging in corporate partnerships and seeking financial grants and support are part of its tasks.
