Resignation of Executive Officer Ben Offereins
Athletics ACT members are hereby advised that our Executive Officer, Ben Offereins, tendered his resignation on Friday and will finish work on Friday 18 August.
The Board has acknowledged Ben's departure with obvious disappointment however we extend our sincere best wishes for his future endeavours.
Ben's passion and commitment towards our sport of Athletics in Canberra has been enormous and has been especially noticed through the performance of our junior athletes over the past few years. Ben's other key legacy has been to convince AA of the benefits of bringing major events back to Canberra and the AIS Track where we have hosted high quality Grand Prix events and last year's Australian All Schools Championships.
Recruitment action to fill the EO vacancy will commence immediately.
Please note that Ben will return to Canberra to undertake a formal handover with his replacement and I will endeavour to organise a farewell function to take place at that time.
President Athletics ACT
