Annual General Meeting

December 4th, 2018

The AGMs of both SCAA and the Martlets Coaching Guild were held on 1st December in Burgess Hill. 19 Clubs were represented out of a total of 25 (not counting the closed clubs that are completely self-contained) which is a big improvement on the last several years. Nearly all the posts on the Executive Committee are now filled, so SCAA is in a much better position to go forward.
And after 45 years there has been a change of General Secretary. Doreen Cannon has had to relinquish her position because of eyesight difficulties, but will continue to figure as a Life Vice-President. The incoming General Secretary is Mark Worsfold of Hellingly.
The Martlets Guild will be holding a series of Personal Development Workshops in January, February and March next year designed to increase Competition-Readiness, for reasonable standard intermediate and better archers hoping to get to, or over, the threshold into the County Team. And as a general sharpening-up opportunity for existing team members.
