In line with the Constitution, the board met post the AGM and returned Paul Stevens to the role of President (and Chair) and Peter Guy as Treasurer a strong commendation of their leadership, strategic thinking and fiscal responsibility since commencing in these roles in 2017. The board will also undertake an extensive search to fill the ‘board appointed’ director positions (two vacancies) in the coming month and complement the skills of the elected directors. Should you be interested, or know anyone suitable, please share the Expression of Interest information once it is released.
Attendees of the AGM received a presentation from Rob Veale of V-Insurance covering the products and scope of the insurance coverage extended to members, clubs, coaches and race directors. The presentation is a valuable resource for all stakeholders and contains Rob’s contacts should you require any further information.
The draft minutes of the AGM will be available to clubs following the next board meeting.
