I wanted to take this opportunity to advise all Athletics ACT members regarding the outcome of elections held at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday 27 May.
The attached document shows the names of the people elected to positions on the Board and our three Committee - however it also highlights six (6) vacancies which I would like to see filled as soon as possible.
I particularly want to welcome new Board Members, Sarah Frew, Suzanne Bain-Donohue and Alex Van der Meer Simo, and in doing so recognise the wonderful service provided by out-going Board Members Chris Butler, Phil Alchin, and Kylie Barsley (who resigned in March). The new Board will discuss the filling of the two ‘Board-elected’ positions at its first meeting later this month.
Our three committees, Competition, Officials, and Selection, are the ‘life blood’ of our association so I would encourage members to seriously consider nominating for one of the vacant roles. The tasks are not onerous and a considerable amount of committee business is conducted via e-mail.
If you would like to nominate for a position please send a brief note to either our Executive Officer, Ben Offereins, at email@example.com or me, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
