Just to confirm that, following the AGM on Thursday evening, the Club Officers for the remainder of this season and for the 2013/2014 season, are as follows:
- Chairman: Brian Maguire
- Vice-Chairman: Barry Lau
- Secretary: Helen Weir
- Treasurer: Matt Jeanes
- NIPA Rep: Mark Overell
Other Committee Members: Gerald Gribbon, Russell Birch, Paul McGivern
Barry will also be taking on the role of Beginners Liaison officer. Donal McCann, whilst he has stepped down from the Committee, has indicated he is willing to continue to act as mentor for those members seeking accreditation. Michael Byrne has taken on the role of Club Outings Organiser and Gareth O'Cathain has agreed to assist Mark in the NIPA Rep role.
Thanks to all those who attended the AGM and engaged in the lively discussion. Minutes of the AGM and Chairman's report from Barry are attached.
Details of how to renew membership online will soon be circulated - I would encourage all members who intend to rejoin to do so as soon as possible, as this will greatly assist us in planning for the new season.
Finally, a special word of thanks to Barry for his exceptional performance as Chairman over the past year, and for agreeing to stay on as vice-chairman this year, despite the imminent new addition to the Lau family!
I'm looking forward to another great year ahead for BPIC.
