Town Hall Meetings

scottishathletics is pleased to confirm that Chair Frank Dick and Head Coach Laurier Primeau and the relevant Regional Athletics Manager will be attending some or all of the Town Hall visits around Scotland as advertised in December.

Member coaches, athletes, administrators and public sector partner organisations are welcome to attend at any of the venues.

Please indicate by emailing mary.anderson@scottishathletics.org.uk if you intend to come along, at least 48 hours before the event.

The Town Hall meetings will give members the chance to input to two of the most recently appointed and most senior personnel within scottishathletics on their views on the opportunities presented to the sport in the countdown to London 2012 and 2014 and raise some of the main issues impacting on athletics at club and regional level.

scottishathletics Chair Frank Dick said: "Town Halls will be an annual forum for expressing opinion, generating ideas, enriching understanding, voicing concerns and addressing issues. They are yours to use as you feel best fits what you consider to be the pursuit of excellence for athletics in Scotland, be that school, club, regional, national or international level. I look forward to seeing you there."
