Event Details

Middle Temple is piloting a new set of societies. With the help of the Inn, and you as a member, it is hoped that these initial societies are successful which will allow for more societies to be established and a wider range of interests to be showcased. 

Fitness:

The Fitness society will be intended for members who enjoy staying active to be able to discuss exercises and how to stay fit. Members will be able to explore different exercises, be able to have friendly challenges, and eventually, will be able to meet up with fellow members for runs, walks, bike rides etc. 

It is worth noting the Fitness society will be for general fitness rather than specific sports such as football, rugby etc. If there is appetite, more sport-based societies may be explored in future.

Steering Group

Each society will have a steering group of a maximum of 5 members per society. These members will be elected to the steering group by members of the society and there will be an annual change over of power. 

Each society will consist of a President and a Treasurer plus 3 other positions. These position names will be chosen by the President and Treasurer of each society, and members of the society will elect someone to that position. 

Each society will have the same hand over day known as ‘Steering Group hand-over’ which will be chosen by Middle Temple and it shall remain the same day in the future. 

Every society will be required to follow a blanket policy which will be created in due course. This will contain how each society must act and ultimately, must not undermine the integrity and trust of Middle Temple. Each member of the Steering group will be made to read and sign the policy in order to be held accountable to it. 

Finance 

All societies will be free to join but the society may host events and activities to which it may charge for. 

A Treasurer will be elected in order to maintain the finance of each society and to make sure no financial errors occur. 

This is a really exciting opportunity to open up a side to Middle Temple that does not currently exist. It is a chance for you to meet new people of similar interests and to further expand the community that already exists within the Inn. The better success that these initial societies have, the more ability we have to create even more. 

This event is open to all members. Attendance is free but booking is required.
