Dingos Restructure Exec for 2015
The Toronto Dingos have been enjoying the offseason in style, with hockey games, Australia Day plans and the welcoming of (or preparing for) newborns to the Dingo family capturing the attention. But with the new season on the horizon and offseason training plans looming, the gears are slowing turning once again as a new-look Executive looks to shape the 2015 Season.
At the Annual General Meeting in early December, Club President Mick McFarlane laid forth a restructuing plan for the Executive, creating a number of new positions to help spread out the responsibilities involved with running a football club and bring some fresh blood into the group. The motion (which passed without objection) lays out the new Exec as such, with all positions being filled without contest:
Club President - Mick McFarlane
Vice President - Dave Wells
Treasurer - Yoni Moussadji
Football Director - Chris Buczkowski
Recruitment Director - James Duggan
Sponsorship Director - Mike Karas
Social Director - Ryan Cross
Communications Director - Everett Wells
Contact information for all positions can be found on our Exec page. Justin Robertson will stay on as Division 1 Head Coach for 2015, with Wade Edwards stepping in as the official Assistant Coach. Both coaches will be involved with the Division 2 squad, offering support and advice to new Division 2 Head Coach Gary Conlon and Assistant Coach James Duggan.
A myriad of other positions - Game Day Coordinators, Beer Fund, and pointment for the annual events (Footy Trip, Blue Jays Home Opener, Pub Golf, AFL Grand Final Party, etc.) were also all selected, details of which can be found in the AGM Minutes (available to club members via email, or upon request).
With the offseason trainings officially kicking off in February, the Toronto Dingos and the new Exec are keen to improve upon a sub-par 2014 showing on the field and return Grand Final contention, where the Red and Black belongs.
