Williamstown Football Club Director Nominations
Director Brent Szalay has tendered his resignation from the Club board citing time constraints with his growing role with CPA Australia, his business and young family.
“I feel at this stage I do not have the time that is required to fulfil my role to the standard that is fair and equitable to the rest of my fellow Board members. After being a Board member for over 5 years, I feel we have come a long way to achieve our objectives set out back then.
“I am proud that the club has achieved great success during this time, notably the decision to stand alone and break the alliance with Western Bulldogs, and then to win the 2015 Premiership flag.”
President Michael Howlett stated “On behalf of my fellow directors and I, I wish to convey our thanks to Brent for his valuable contribution both on the Board and on the Finance Sub-Committee, and we wish him every success in his future. We are pleased to report that Brent will continue to be a member of the finance sub-committee”.
