Ginninderra supporting Athletics in the ACT

Behind every great sport there are those tireless volunteers who give their time and energy not just to keep the lights on but to further the objects and strategic vision of the Association.

Athletics has been able to benefit from the expertise and knowledge of key members of Ginninderra Athletics. Our volunteers have been representatives on the Boards and Committees of AACT and LAACT for many decades now.

This season the Club is very fortunate that David Lemon, Rory O’Sullivan, Neil Thomas and Stuart Todd are all supporting the running of LAACT. David has recently signed up again as the Finance Director, while Neil is serving his second stint as an ALAC Selector and Stuart will be the ALAC Team Manager in Tasmania next year. Rory who is a UC Marketing Undergraduate has been the Marketing and PR Director for the past year as well as a keen member of our Run_ACT Team.

At the big end of town, Hamish MacDonald is now in his second year as a Director on the Board of Athletics ACT, the peak body for the sport in Canberra. Working alongside the Board are the Competition, Selections and Officals Committees. Phil Henderson has joined Hamish on the Selections Committee, meanwhile Steve Dodt is on the Competition and Officials Committees. Two former GLAC members in Dennis Mace and Brian Sinclair are also serving AACT on Committees.

In recent years Ginninderra’s  Life Members including Helen Hopkins and Geoff Bartley  as well as Alex van der Meer Simo have served as Board Members with the Association. Continuing the long established link between the club and the Sport in the ACT.

Ginninderra Athletics is very proud of the contribution it’s members are making on and off the track. A healthy club can be seen by its contributions to the local community, its membership and the Association.
