AGM - report of meeting December 16th.

The Club held its  AGM on Dec 16th in the GAA meeting room. 
Chairman Michael Curtin in his opening address welcomed the sizeable attendance and said a prayer for present and former club members.  Michael thanked the various club officers, all those involved with teams and the players for their efforts in 2012. He expressed in his address how vast the role of the various club officers has become and that the amount of time required in these positions is increasing despite (or maybe because of!) the use of technology. 
Secretary Mary Davis gave a comprehensive report of activities both on and off the field noting in particular the success at under age. She thanked Glenman Corporation our main sponsor who continue to support the club in all areas but especially financially. Mary also thanked all other sponsors and all who support and promote our lotto. She also thanked all who published notes during the year for the club; Fr. Mooney, Tuam Herald, Midwest Radio and Galway Bay FM.
Treasurer Kevin Duffy presented a detailed balance sheet and informed all present of the increasing cost of running the club on an annual basis. He thanked all for their support and expressed the need for some fund raising tasks to be taken in 2013. It was agreed that the cost of club membership for 2013 would remain the same as for 2012.
The election of officers then took place. The only change of personnel for 2013 were in the roles  of child protection officer and substance abuse officer. Michael Curtin  thanked the outgoing personnel  and welcomed Pat Geraghty as child protection officer and Kenneth Comer as substance abuse officer.  
Michael Curtin chairman concluded the meeting by  wishing all members the best of health, and happiness in 2013 both on and off the field.
