September 15, 2014

The Athletics Advisory Committee held its first meeting on September 15, 2014. Also in attendance were the varsity sport coaches and representatives from Development and Alumni Engagement.

After a welcome from the Chair, President Abd-El-Aziz, the advisory board members introduced themselves to each other, which was followed with round-table discussion. Each coach gave an overview of the upcoming sport season as well as outlined the opportunities and challenges in their area.

The discussion moved to the topic of the search for a new Director of Athletics and Recreation. The Chair advised the Advisory Board that Tracy Ellsworth would be a representative from their group on the selection committee. Also, the top two candidates will make presentations to the Advisory Board, which will give feedback to the selection committee.

The meeting concluded with everyone agreeing that the Advisory Board was a positive initiative to move UPEI Athletics and Recreation forward.
