Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club Welcomes New Board Members

The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club (Nashville GAC) held the Annual General Meeting on December 19, 2015, during which elections were held for new board members who will serve in the coming year. The open positions included Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer. Outgoing Chairman, John Watson, served for more than two years after founding the club in Nashville and saw the club grow from four in the first several months to a roster of over forty members in good standing.

The Nashville GAC board members for 2015 also included Timothy Ryan Buckley as Vice Chairman, Liam Barry as Registrar, Molly Bombardi-Mount as Secretary, Brendan Reynolds as Treasurer, Jennifer Barry as Public Relations Officer, and Aaron Joley as Member at Large. After the vote, appointments were necessary to fill newly vacant positions.

The new board for the Nashville Gaelic Athletic Association in 2016 is now as follows: Timothy Ryan Buckley, elected Chairman; Liam Barry, appointed Vice Chairman; Molly Buckley, appointed Registrar; Molly Bombardi-Mount, elected Secretary; Rayne Leonard, elected Treasurer; Jennifer Barry, remaining Public Relations Officer; and Aaron Joley, remaining Member at Large.

Several committees were also formed as a result of the Annual General Meeting, with appointed chairs agreeing to serve. Christopher Davis and Rayne Leonard will lead the recruitment and retention committee. Megan Scott will serve as head of fundraising and sponsorship. David Smith and Ashley Raby will continue directing the social committee. Perhaps the most difficult of committees, the events committee, will be led by Brendan Rauer. The events committee will oversee the Nashville GAC invitational tournament, participation in the Second Annual Irish Fest, and participation in the Second Annual Highland Games.
