Jan 21, 2013 Sports Comments Off on Aubrey Hutson is new AAG President
Owner of Office Machines Electronics Lab and President of the Running Braves Athletics Club, Aubrey Hutson became the new Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) President following the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Elections yesterday.
Hutson won the vote for President 6-3 from Deputy Superintendent of Police, Colin Boyce, who had occupied the seat for the last four years and who is credited with digging athletics out of the dormant two decades Claude Blackmore had held the seat.
Digicel’s Sponsorship and Events Manager, Gavin Hope was elected Vice-President along with A Partnership for National Unity Member of Parliament, George Norton, who was not present at the AGM. Cheryl Sam was elected Treasurer, while Police Inspector, Amanda Hermanstine was elected Assistant Secretary/Treasurer.
The Executive will meet and appoint the General Secretary. Leslie Black, John Martins, Wayne Walcott, Mark Scott and Faye Naughton were all named Committee Members; the constitutional life of the AAG extends for four years.
“I would like to give special thanks to Mr. Colin Boyce for the contributions he has made to the sport on and off the track. His name will forever be a household name in athletics,” Hutson said in his brief acceptance remarks at the YMCA yesterday.
He told the representatives of the nine clubs that were present that athletes will only be selected to represent Guyana on merit and warned them that “no favours were promised to anyone” as he summoned them to work with the administration to develop the sport.
Boyce congratulated Hutson and also pleaded with the athletics community to give him support as he also committed to helping the new President. Boyce had made it clear before that should he be re-elected, his second term would have been his final term.
