“Subject:  Yorkshire Vikings Open AGM

Dear Vikings,

As valued members of YVTT we would very much like to invite you to the clubs first AGM meeting. This will be an opportunity for us to openly discuss amongst other items the clubs short and long term plans, structure, coaching and share with you our vision for the future of the Vikings.

We value your input, thoughts and suggestions on all of the above topics to ensure we build a balanced and transparent club that can thrive and grow inline with all our needs. If you are uncomfortable or unavailable to discuss your thoughts at the AGM, then can we please ask that you send over your comments or questions prior to the meeting either by email or by telephone.

We will also be joined at the AGM by Michelle Scott the Triathlon Engagement Manager from British Triathlon, she will be on hand to advise and answer any questions we may have.

We have identified various key roles that the club will need to support its structure alongside that of the coaching team. This will ensure that we don’t over burden any one person and we build a committee that has diversity and a breadth of experience that can truly support the club and its members. The interim committee members will provide an overview of the various roles and as a group we can then discuss how the committee members will be nominated.

We would also like to invite all members where possible to bring their partners. We recognise that the support network around members is often as important as the training its self. We are hoping that a wider sense of engagement will help us all foster a stronger community spirit.

The meeting will be held in Selby on the evening of 16th August 7:30pm at Lion Fitness Studio, Selby Business Park, Oakney Wood Road, Selby YO8 8LZ.

To give us an idea of numbers we would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by replying to this email.

We look forward to seeing you on the 16th.

Warm Regards,

The Committee.”
