AGM Reminder + Annual Report

Happy Mothers Day to all of our wonderful mum’s, thanks for all that you do!

A friendly reminder that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place next Sunday, 21 May at 2.30pm. The venue is Canterbury Girls High School (School Hall), Church Street, Canterbury and everyone is welcome.

We will also hold a 2023/24 Season Planning Session immediately after the AGM. This will run for approximately 60-90 minutes.

For full details for the meeting, please refer to the original notice here: Notice of Canterbury Athletics Club AGM

Additional things to note:

1. Annual Report: You can view this here: Annual Report 2022-23. Huge thanks to Mandy Verdon for this report and the excellent presentation of it, and to all of the report’s contributors.

2. Committee/Age Manager Nominations: thanks to everyone who has submitted their nomination forms to continue in their positions for next season or to step into new roles. If you haven’t submitted yours yet, please find them at the following links and send them to Mel: secretary@clac.org.au.

Nomination Form – Executive

Nomination Form – General

Nomination Form – Age Manager

3. Nominations for President: Since the original AGM notification was circulated, I have resigned from the role of President. My kids are no longer participating in athletics and as committed as I have been to this club, my priorities must now be elsewhere. Therefore, we do need someone to step up into this role for the next 12 months (initially) and at the moment, no one has expressed interest or commitment to take on this role. Please, please, please – we need a President for our club. There is a fantastic group of knowledgable and committed people across our various Committee roles, with many processes and resources already in place. Please urgently reach out via president@clac.org.au to discuss how you can help.

As you know, Canterbury Athletics Club is run by a volunteer committee who are elected at the AGM. Without our Committee members, our kids won’t have a local club to participate with and for this, we say thanks to you all for your time, enthusiasm and efforts to deliver a positive experience for our members.

We look forward to seeing you at the AGM next Sunday.

Canterbury Athletics Club President

Canterbury Athletics Club Senior Registrations Now Open

We are SO excited to to announce that we have received Athletics NSW affiliation, which means we can now welcome athletes of all ages! (YES – parents too!)

To recognise the expansion, Canterbury Little Athletics Centre will become Canterbury Athletics Club over the year ahead.

What does this mean for our Little Athletes?

If you are only interested in Little Athletics NSW competitions and registration, this will bring no change to your membership. We will continue to deliver our Little Athletics program as we always have, but our dual aged athletes (ages 10 and above) will now have the opportunity to register as a ‘senior’ member with Canterbury, instead of needing to register with another Athletics NSW affiliated club.

This result has been over two years in the making, with it ultimately increasing competition opportunities for members, as well as opening opportunities for athletes aged 18 and above to participate in athletics locally, at whichever level they choose.

The transition will be gradual and updates specific to our senior athletes will be published via Team App, Facebook and on our website.

A special thank you to our President Amy Winters who has worked tirelessly behind the scenes over the last 2 years to get this across the line.

Athletics NSW Registrations are now open – to register as a member of Canterbury Athletics Club please visit the following link: https://www.revolutionise.com.au/can/

For more information on Dual Membership – please visit: http://clac.org.au/athletics-nsw-dual-membership/

Congratulations to all involved in this exciting next chapter for our club!
