Come to our Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday 9 May from 6pm upstairs at the Astor Hotel, Pulteney Street. Come along and hear a couple of brief reports before our guest speakers chat to us about a few of the epic races that they have completed. We’ll provide some nibbles and one free drink on the night. RSVP by completing the RSVP form.
We look forward to seeing you there and showing you what Trail Running SA is all about.
AGM Formalities (including committee nominations)
Before we get into the fun stuff and hear from our guest speaker (Beck Butler), there will be a couple of formalities to get through. These shouldn’t take long!

Committee positions we’d like to fill at the AGM:
After successful social years in 2016 and 2017, we are looking for someone to take over the organisation for our Trail Running Social Events. You’ll be involved organising social events and bringing on guest speakers, targeting topics that are relevant to our members and trail running community. Don’t worry though there’s heaps of people willing to talk!
We need someone to help promote TRSA and all the awesome things we do! In particular, we’d love someone to coordinate the monthly newsletter, source event/race reports from our events and submit them for publication to magazines etc. Murray takes care of all things Facebook in terms of publicity but we’d someone to come up with new avenues and help us feature wherever possible.
Who doesn’t love a good photo of themselves whilst completing a trail run? We are looking for someone who will work with our photography partners, book them for each event and assist with providing them with details of where we need them to be on the day, what times and then getting the photos uploaded onto our Facebook page as quick as possible.
Assistant Race Directors (Race Directors in training)
Do you love organising things or getting people together to get to an end goal? As amazing as our Race Directors are, they simply can’t do everything for each of our events by themselves. The Assistant RD is instrumental in assisting the RD to bring the event together before and on race day.
If you don’t want to commit to the committee but are interested in what goes on at these meetings, never fear, any member of TRSA may subsequently attend a committee meeting as an observer.
Reports – what would an AGM be without an overview to how Trail Running SA has been going over the past year! We will share a few reports with you on the night, feel free to ask any questions and help keep us accountable.
