Ghana Athelectics Association Holds Annual General Meetings

The Annual General Meeting of the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) has been held. In attendance were 18 representatives from ten regional association and eight institutes including the local athletes’ representatives. The meeting which was chaired by the President of the Association, Professor Francis Dodoo deliberated on the following;

- Financial statement
- Review of 2010
- Preview of 2011
- Calender of 2011

In his opening statement, the President welcomed all members to the meeting and assured them of fruitful deliberations.

 

He informed members about some international medals won by the association; four (4) medals were won during the Athletics championship in Nairobi, ten (10) medals at the ECOWAS Games in Abuja and two (2) medals from the Commonwealth games in New Delhi.

 

He also informed members about the Maria Tsakos sponsorship of Sixty Thousand US Dollars (US$60,000) in even installments of US$20,000 a year for 3 years as well as a Ten thousand US Dollars (U$10,000) donation by Ackah Rashid.

 

The financial statement of the Association was approved by members after it was read by Mr. Richard Agyapong. They further recommended that a public auditor be asked to audit and approve the accounts for publication.

 

The executive members of the GAA pledged during the annual general meeting to be accountable, transparent and honest to the association. In view of this, members were asked to render their stewardship.

 

On the issue of discipline, the President informed members about two senior athletes namely Ignatius Gaisah and Nana Kofi Sam who put up unruly behaviours and as such punitive measures were taken against them

 

Falsification of athletes’ age was another issue that came up for deliberation, and it was agreed that any athlete who falsifies his or her age will be banned to two years from GAA, CAA ad IAAF programmes. The athlete’s coach will also be banned for three years.

 

The 2011 calendar and qualifying policy were approved and adopted.

 

The President Pro. Francis Dodo thanked all members for their commitment and urged them to maintain the momentum for better development of the association.
