Sligo Athletic Club: AGM update
The AGM of Sligo Athletic Club was held on Monday 1st February in the Southern Hotel. The attendence level was disappointing & its hoped that a lot more members will be present for the quarterly meeting in April of this year. After registration of members the AGM officially began. The first order of business was the election of the Board. Results are as follows; Chairman - Ray Flynn. Vice Chairman - Michael O’Connell. Secretary - Terry Hayes. Asst Secretary - Mary Foye. Treasurer - Michael O’Hart. Registrar - Anne McHugh. Welfare Officer - Michael Gilroy. Web Management - Ultan McNasser. A report on Club Finances was next up with Michael O'hart giving a detailed breakdown of the current balance. A Club Road Race was discussed with a possible date of late April/early June to co-incide with/replace the existing Womens Mini Marathon. The organising of a Sligo Road Race league was also mooted involving existing races that had proper permits and organisational structures attached. A debate on the closure of the Race Track at Sligo IT for the period May '10 until September '10 was also discussed with the suggestion that club members should try and re-initate a track committee that had been established orginally when the track was first constructed. By doing so it would allow the primary users of the track, Sligo AC, a forum in which to air its suggestions, grievances etc. The next meeting is on Monday 19th April & it is essential that all members attend in order to contruct proper organisation within the club.
