#CelebrateEssex ‘Treasurer’ Category: Nominations Open

Make Your Submission to @EssexCountyFA by 24th April

#CelebrateEssex shines a light on the crucial volunteers whose unpaid efforts make the local grassroots game tick. Nominations are being collected for the latest monthly category of our Twitter/X competition, with ‘Treasurers’ being highlighted.

Via the @EssexCountyFA account until Wednesday 24th April, Treasurer nominations can be made to showcase personal stories from local personalities, increasing their visibility as role models and encouraging new faces to come forward. Once all the nominations have been collated, a final voting stage will then identify the latest winner.

April is the month of the ‘Treasurer’ category. Treasurers play a crucial role to ensure income exceeds, or at least matches, expenditure and that adequate records are kept. They help to cover essential costs which may, sometimes, involve fundraising activities, seeking sponsorship or applying for grants. Volunteer treasurers are literally worth their weight in gold. Last year’s winner was Jodie Battersby from Wivenhoe Tempest YFC.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of grassroots football, putting in countless hours of their time so others can enjoy playing the game. Football needs more of these true heroes, but it also needs to retain and recognise those already involved. Through this regular Twitter/X activity, #CelebrateEssex aims to do just that, promoting ten different roles throughout the year.

Stage One: Make Your Nomination on Twitter/X

If you know a ‘Treasurer’ who you think should receive some special thanks, anyone can make a nomination by tweeting (by 24th April):

“I nominate [Insert Name and/or Twitter/X Username] from [Insert Club/Team or Twitter/X Username] as @EssexCountyFA #CelebrateEssex Treasurer because…”

State why your nominee should be the winner and be as descriptive as you can in 280 characters! It’s important to use the #CelebrateEssex hashtag to ensure your entry is registered.

Stage Two: Nominations Reviewed

Once the window closes, all the nominations received will be collated and a panel will decide which individuals will be progressed to the final poll/vote.

Stage Three: Let Voting Commence!

A poll/vote will be available on this web page for seven days, featuring profiles of the nominees so voters can make an informed decision on who to vote for.

Stage Four: And Our Winner Is…

The winner of the poll will be contacted to be that month’s ‘Volunteer of the Month’!

Follow the #CelebrateEssex hashtag on Twitter/X to keep track of the nominations! To find out more about volunteering in grassroots Essex football, browse the 'Volunteers' menu above, follow @EssexCountyFA on Twitter/X and search for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
