Last night (Tuesday 5th December) the FDDA held its AGM. We had a great turnout with nearly all clubs represented and having their opportunity to have a say in how the association runs.
It was a pretty quick meeting and we will send more information through soon but the biggest news of the night involved a couple of changes to the committee.
We had two longtime members retire from the committee, the first being Phil Marshall who has been replaced by Dave Charnock. We wish Phil all the best in his pending retirement and thank him for his time on the committee. At the same time we welcome Dave to the team and look forward to his input over the next couple of years.
The second retirement is extremely significant. After 28 years of service, Denise Dyer chose to not renominate for the position of Secretary and also retire after what can only be described as an incredible period of service and dedication to the association. We of course also wish Denise all the very best and thank her too for an amazing effort over such a long time.
We received two nominations for the position of secretary and after a committee vote just prior to the AGM, Ross Thompson was elected as our new Secretary so welcome Ross and congratulations on your election.
There is much to do in 2018 as we look to keep improving the association and setting it up for future growth. We look forward to the entire membership embracing some new concepts for the coming year and working together to make sure we remain an energetic and progressive competition.
