Northern NSW Football’s Annual General Meeting was held on Sunday March 19 at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility, with an announcement of newly appointed Board Members seeing Bill Moncrieff, Rick Naylor and Paul Sullivan elected to the Board to fill vacancies left by departing long serving Board Members Phil Holt, Alex McDonald and Michael Gaertner.
The new Board members join Bill Walker, Larry Urdarov and Helene O’Neill to make up the new NNSWF Board of Directors.
Voting held in conjunction with the new appointments saw Bill Walker returned to the position of Chairman, with Helene O’Neill elected as Deputy Chairperson.
The three departing Board Members were integral to the NNSWF Board’s landmark decision to develop the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility and this foresight and commitment was officially recognised with a plaque unveiled commemorating the first event held at the facility and the Board Members at the time who championed the facilities development.
The Annual General Meeting coincided with a Peak Steering Committee meeting of NNSWF Member Zones and the release of NNSWF’s Annual Report for 2016.
