With the new season, we welcome some new additions and changes to our Executive Committee which was done out our most recent Annual General Meeting leading into the 2018 Season.
We are delighted to announce Josie Di Blasi as our new president in 2018. Josie was involved with the club in its inception and early years back in 1984 and her partner Joe one of the original founders of the club and on the committee in its inaugural year.
We also welcome back Rita Chapman as Vice-President, a life member of the club and a fantastic person to have around the club who has been involved for over 15 years.
An insight into the club’s new strategic direction forward of being progressive and innovative, we see the club moving in a fantastic direction of having more of a female influence.
I think it shows where we are heading as a club, we value female involvement and the women’s game of football. To have both Josie and Rita involved with the key decision making powers of the club and leading us into a vision and philosophy is a testament to them and the club. As a club, we are growing rapidly and female involvement has never been higher in all aspects of Avondale Football Club. – General Manager, Jarrad Denham
