The club AGM was held this year in the Imperial Hotel in Cork City on Wednesday the 14th of January 2015. In previous years, it had been held in the red building in CIT but due to the increasing membership, the club decided to make the switch this year. With tea, coffee and sandwiches on offer, it also made for a much more social occasion.
The meeting opened with vice chairman Joe Roche recounting the highlights of 2014. In his address, Joe highlighted the increased participation in championship events and how this lay at the core of what being in an athletics club is all about. He noted that the club had shown a marked participation in such events in 2014 and encouraged more members to take part in championship races in 2015.
He also made a request to members to become more involved in the running of the club. In the past, the club has depended on too few people and it would assist greatly if more members would take on some roles, no matter how small.
After the various other reports and motions were dealt with, the clubs officers for 2015 were elected with our new chairman being Pat Twomey. A full list can be seen here… https://eagleac.net/club-officials/
The AGM concluded with our new chairman presenting the medals for the 2014 Munster Half-Marathon Championship to various members.
