AGM 19th October 2012

Dear All

The Leeds City Athletic Club AGM is next Friday 19th October. It is a chance for all members to have their say in how the club is run.

One of the main tasks at the meeting is to elect the committee for the next 12 months. At this moment in time there are only 12 nominations for the 16 positions as set out in our constitution. We therefore face having a Committee running at only ¾’s of its potential capacity.

The athletes at our club compete all year round with the track & field season running from April to September, cross country October to March with road relays, other road races, race walking, fell running , trail running and  wheelchair racing spread throughout the year.  In the last 12 months our athletes have excelled in a wide range of events with success at pretty much every discipline they have competed in.

If we are to give our athletes the support they deserve we need to have a full compliment of committee members. Committee Meetings are usually every couple of months at 7.30 lasting 90 minutes or so.

A role we particularly need to fill is that of Secretary as Janet Wilkinson is standing down after three years in the role. Janet has done a fantastic job in this role. The main tasks are to take minutes at Committee meetings. The secretary also receives much of the correspondence from the main Athletic Associations and these needs to past on to the correct person.

If you are interested in joining the committee please give me a call as soon as possible on 07852280009.
