Canadian Masters Athletics Announcements
1) Annual Meeting of Members
Canadian Masters Athletics (CMA) announces that its 2016 Annual Meeting of Members will be held at 3:30 pm on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at Toronto Track & Field Centre, 231 Ian MacDonald Blvd., Toronto, Ontario. All members of the CMA are invited to attend this Annual Meeting.
In order to allow as many members as possible to attend this Annual Meeting, the Board has scheduled the meeting to be held in a meeting room at the location of the CMA 2017 Indoor Track & Field Championships, after the completion of the day’s Championship events.
At this Meeting, the Members will be asked to approve the election of one-third of the CMA’s elected Board of Directors (4 directors), and to approve the election of the following Officers from among the elected Directors: President; Vice-President, Stadia; Vice-President, Non-Stadia; Treasurer; and Secretary.
2) Resignation of Director and Vice-President, Stadia
The CMA also announces that Brian Keaveney has resigned as a member of the Board of Directors and as Vice-President, Stadia of the CMA, effective the date of the Annual Meeting. Brian was recently elected the Vice-President, Competition of World Masters Athletics, an extremely responsible position which recognizes his abilities, knowledge and experience in the organization of high-quality athletics events. As such, Brian will not be able to carry out the duties involved with being a member of the Board of Directors and the Vice President, Stadia of the CMA. He will, however, make himself available to help his successor during a period of transition. His experience will be missed on the Board of the CMA, and in the organization of many of the CMA’s Stadia events.
