Dear Members, Athletes, and Clubs,
Judo Alberta hosted their Annual General Meeting on November 20th virtually. Multiple items were discussed and important votes were made. Some of the highlights were a good fiscal year for 2021-2022, changes to the bylaws, and new executive committee positions. All of the information on this can be found in our 2021-22 Annual and AGM Report.
We would like to thank Trevor Hazell for his leadership and guidance over the last 6 years as President. The President can only serve for 3 consecutive 2 year terms. There have been many challenges faced by Judo Alberta and Trevor has led the organization through all of it. Trevor will continue on the Executive Committee as the Secretary.
With Trevor’s time as President coming to an end, that means Judo Alberta has a new President. We are pleased to welcome back a familiar name and face for his second go around as President, Kelly Thornton. Kelly previously served as President for 6 years from 2011-2017. Kelly has stayed active on the Executive Committee in multiple roles over the last 6 years, including treasurer and secretary. We are excited to see where Kelly takes Judo in the province of Alberta for his next term as President.
The full list of our new Executive Committee is:
- President – Kelly Thornton
- VP of Finance – Denise Morgan
- VP of Administration – Paul Hachey
- Treasurer – Steve Norris
- Secretary – Trevor Hazell
- Registrar – Helen Bienert
- Regional Chair – N/A
- Women’s Representative – Jennifer Parker
- Athlete’s Representative – Alexandra Gagnon
- Executive Director – Caleb Boorse
Please feel free to reach out to any of the Executive Committee at any time.
