Annual General Meeting Update & Election Results
Updated: Feb 9
The OIRC AGM was held on December 11th, 2021. Topics discussed included:
Impact of COVID-19
Fundraisers & Financial Report
Firstly we would like to thank Mel Judges for her 4+ years as club president. During her time as president Mel has ensured the clubs financial health through grants and bursaries and strong fiscal responsibility, provided strong leadership on new and continuing initiatives as well as kept the club active and strong through the global COVID-19 Pandemic. Mel has stepped down as president but is remaining on the executive as our new VP Rugby where she will now be responsible for all rugby programs within the club. Kevin Ireland is taking over as club president after a successful vote at the AGM. Kevin previously served as the club's Alumni Liason and was frequently found at club events, matches, and organizing Alumni socials. Kevin is also the current Vice-President of the Twin Elm Rugby Park (TERP) board of directors. We all look forward to seeing what direction Kevin takes the club in.
We would also like to thank Ben Rogers for his time spent as VP Rugby for the last year. Ben stepped down from his role of VP Rugby but will still be volunteering as to assist the club.
That concludes the changes in the club's executive team; however, we would like to welcome and recognize all of our volunteers on the team.
