At last week’s AGM, the membership elected two new volunteer Directors to join the Board.
Let’s meet Judith McCleary, our new Independent Director;
‘I volunteered to be on the Board of Scottish Archery as it is a National Governing Body that is clearly demonstrating a desire and potential to progress.
Through my sports development career, I have gained a wealth of knowledge across a diverse range of areas including player pathways, workforce development, welfare and event management. I hope that my input and experiences will be of value to staff and volunteers at Scottish Archery and will help in reaching the strategic aims of the organisation.
I am a very driven individual with a passion for sport. My husband and I compete together in Mixed Doubles curling and have continued to compete worldwide since having our son last year. Life is a bit of a juggling act but as the saying goes 'if you want something done, ask a busy person'!
I am thoroughly looking forward to learning more about Scottish Archery over the coming months and helping to identify areas that i could potentially influence to improve. Thank you for appointing me as your new Director.' Judith McCleary, Independent Director
We also elected Pip Tucknott as Director of Performance;
'After observing Scottish Archery over the past few years through my role as Eastern Area president, I realised there was great scope for what could be achieved through working with the members of the Board and the staff and wanted to not only be a part of this but also play a larger role.
Over the next few years, my goal is to establish and implement a pathway to enable Scottish Archery members to perform and challenge at increasingly higher levels of the sport.
I am a competitive compound archer with my proudest achievement so far being when I qualifyed for the 2015 European Indoors despite having limited training facilities and no coach at the time.
I am looking forward to getting stuck into my role and I am always open to ideas even if they are not a complete solution to the problem, and will happily work with others on a multitude of issues.’ Pip Tucknott, Director of Performance
