A lot goes on to maintain and improve the Club behind the scenes. The Committee is made up of the Directors and a number of Co-ordinators. The Committee meets every month and the normal agenda includes many varied items including Club promotion, Club finances, the Motorsport Radio Group, Safeguarding, Membership issues, Rescue Units, Training, Social events (including the Club's 50th Anniversary celebrations) and more.
The Directors are legally responsible for the management of the Club and ensuring it carries out its activities properly.

The improvement of motorsport marshalling standards has been one of SMMC’s main stated objectives since its inception in 1973 and we are proud to be at the forefront of Marshals’ training in Scotland.
The Safeguarding Officer acts as the first point of contact for all safeguarding enquiries within the club and to ensure that welfare is considered in all aspects of the club activities. If anyone in the club (staff, volunteer, parents or children) who has a concern about a child, young person or vulnerable adult or a concern about poor practice/possible abuse by adults working with children or vulnerable adults, you MUST report it to the Club Safeguarding Officer. ‘Never do nothing’ - it is every adult’s responsibility to safeguard children and adults at risk.
