Thank you to all who participated at our AGM on Oct 22, 2019. It was another great discussion with ideas that will definitely help this association grow and improve over the next few years.
Once again we were almost able to fill every single position on the committee, compared to a handful of people who have been running the association for the past few years. We are always on the search for more volunteers for the upcoming season though, so feel free to get in touch if you want to contribute!
