To all NAFC members and supporters, Bohdan Jaworskyj, our Club President of the past 16 years, announced his decision to retire from the Board of Directors effective from the next AGM in February 2017. Bohdan announced to the attendees at the Barrie Robran Club Champion Awards last Friday that he had decided it was time to move on and hand the role over to someone else after a long tenure in the role.
Bohdan reflected on the enormous turbulence which engulfed the club in the early 2000’s, when the club was facing possible extinction due to severe financial difficulties, and the hard work which was done by the Board at the time to put in place the necessary strategies which ensured the financial resurrection of the club. Today we see the results of this work, the role Bohdan played in pulling it all together was critical with his leadership inspiring. As Bohdan said last Friday, it was a team effort at Board level which enabled a series of strategies to be played out, and it was the passion of the staff, our supporters, members and sponsors that made it all come together.
The standing ovation he received after his announcement was testament to the gratitude the people in the room had for his work over many years.
We sincerely thank Bohdan and Beth Jaworskyj for their loyalty and commitment to this great club, and we look forward to seeing them both at the football next season and beyond, following the Roosters like they have for the past nearly 50 years.
