Committee Bulletin - April 2018

Evening Development Meetings

TAC will be holding a series of development meetings on the first Tuesday of May, June and July for members to gain experience in competition, and to possibly try other events.

Timetables will be available soon via the TAC website fixtures page.  Entry will be available online and entry on the day will be limited as some events may be closed in advance to ensure the evening runs to the timetable.  Cost will be £2 for each athlete entered.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Members will be aware that the GDPR becomes law on 25th May 2018, providing additional protection to members’ personal data managed by the Club using the SportsTG membership registration system.

We are working closely with SportsTG to ensure that the system is compliant with the GDPR requirements as their servers are currently located outside of the EU.

The Club is also developing a Privacy Statement and Policy which will detail the use of members’ data for Club administration, competition league entry and with other competition providers, such as English Schools and Kent County Athletics Association.

 Further details will be available soon, but should you have any concerns please

Cardiac Risk in the Young

One of our members flagged up the sad death of the young cyclist Michael Goolaerts at the weekend from cardiac arrest.

CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) offer free screening for people aged 14-35 at sessions around the country.

There is a form you can complete to ask to be notified when screening comes up in your region if current ones are full.

TAC management committee are looking into the possibility of hosting a screening session and will circulate the details if this can the arranged.

Membership Renewals

Look out for the renewal email from England Athletics. Please renew as soon as possible especially if you are competing for the club. Anyone who has not renewed by the 1st May 2018 will be deemed to have resigned and their membership will be terminated.
