We are also pleased to announce a number of new and continuing committee members who have kindly offered their time and expertise to help deliver ongoing services to our members.
Our new Committee appointments:

We still have a couple of vacancies on the Committee, one to oversee our ‘Events’ which forms a key part of the Club’s offering, and ‘Sponsorship & Fundraising’ which co-ordinates our Club sponsors and helps with charitable fundraising.
We are also on the lookout for Trustees to join our Board. Trustees are responsible for providing Strategic Direction and Governance to the Club and Charity; we would be interested in hearing from anyone who has experience in the Charity Sector.

Club President Iain Todd said.
“I joined the club eight years ago when I was training for my first triathlon event. I wanted to join a friendly welcoming club who could help me improve. I was warmly welcomed from day one and it has inspired me to do and achieve things I’d never have thought possible eight years ago. I believe the club is the friendliest in Scotland. I hope that the committee will lead by example and ensure the club continues being a triathlon club for everyone no matter your age or ability.”
I’d like to welcome the new and returning members to the committee. We all look forward to helping the club work towards its 2025 strategy. The most important people in the club are the members so please feel free to contact any of us about anything. We are here to help.”
Please join me in welcoming the Iain and the Committee members and please offer your support to them where you can.
Chair: Board of Trustees
