Councillors have responsibility for individual areas (known as Portfolios), such as coaching, schools, etc. New Portfolio responsibilities will be outlined below in late June. Each member of the council will take on an area of responsibility, which not only reflects areas of interest, but also their experience in athletics. It means too that there is always someone you can contact with any questions, ideas or concerns.
