Canada AC welcome five new Board Members

Athletics Canada is pleased to welcome Tim Berrett, Sean Holman, Grant McDiarmaid, Ann Peel, and Dave Thomas to the Board of Directors. They were elected over the weekend as part of the association's Annual General Meeting. Other important outcomes of the Annual General Meeting were the ratification to increase membership fees to bring an end to partially self-funded teams as of the 2015 competitive season and approval of a new set of By-laws for the association consistent with the new Canada Not For profit Corporations Act.

"2014 marks an inflexion point for Athletics in Canada as momentum builds to Toronto 2015, World Championships in 2015, and of course the Olympics and Paralympics in Rio 2016. Outstanding performances by our athletes on the field of play are matched by significant strides forward in strengthening development programs and relationships with road running and other key partners," said Gord Orlikow, Board Chair. "These directors represent a new generation of leadership and bring a balanced and impressive set of skills to the federation. I am deeply indebted to the directors rotating off the board for all of their contributions and look forward to building on their legacy."

Tim Berrett has been elected to the position of Director-at-large for a one-year term. Until recently Tim was in the position of Branch President at Athletics Alberta and served in the role of Chair of the Branch President's Council. Tim was a long time national team member in the race walk event competing in three Olympic Games (1992, 2000, 2004).

Sean Holman has been elected as Director-at-large and will sit in the position of Treasurer for a two-year term. Sean, a Toronto-based supply chain and financial executive, is a former national team coach and manager. He is a long-term member of Athletics Canada's finance committee.

Grant McDiarmaid has been elected as Director-at-large on a one-year term. The British-Columbia based marketing executive and consultant holds extensive board and leadership experience within and outside of sport and most recently was especially influential in helping craft Freestyle Skiing's highly successful partnerships with the corporate community in Canada.

Ann Peel was elected as Director-at-large on a two-year term. The Toronto-based lawyer and social activist is a former Female Athlete Representative on Athletics Canada's Board of Directors. The long-time national team athlete was a founding leader of Athletes CAN and Right to Play.

Dave Thomas was elected as Director-at-large on a two-year term. He is a long time volunteer in the sport including roles such as former Executive Director and Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick.

In the same meeting Inaki Gomez was confirmed as Male Athlete Representative and Director-at-large. Inaki has represented Canada at multiple Games and Championships and has his sights firmly set on a podium finish in Rio. He graduated with a B.A. in International Relations from the University of British Columbia and is currently enrolled at the University of Calgary to pursue a degree in the Faculty of Law.
