Dear Past, Current and Future Members,
Following the AGM we are left with a number of key positions that have not been filled. These positions are vital to the running of the club, and to be quite frank the survival of the club.
Therefore I am calling on past, current and future members who care about the future of the club to attend an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held Wednesday the 28th of October at 7pm
. This will be a face to face meeting located in Wollongong. The venue will be decided in due course based on anticipated numbers and COVID restrictions.
The club is in a fantastic position financially. We have also just secured a further DA to run our club races for another 5 years. This means we will continue to be the only club race on the coast to have all council approvals and Triathlon Australia sanctioning. Along with providing a safe club race for our members it also brings opportunities such as last week hosting a race of the Junior State Sprint Series (this attracted close to 100 of the best young athletes to our club event). More locally it also allows us to work closer to groups such as the IAS Triathlon program growing the future of the sport and the club.
In saying this though, we have a very small committee, a committee made up of long term members that have helped out season upon season. This isn't sustainable. This day was going to come, and a number of these committee members stepped down this season after multiple years, and in some cases decades of volunteering. This has left a massive hole.
I encourage you to attend. If you are interested in helping out we can find a role based on our skill set and time you have to commit. If we can get to the point where we have 1 person focusing on 1 role it will make for a very successful club. It all depends on you.
If you are planning on attending or want to know more please email me at email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you.
