Club AGM on 9 October 2014, 7pm

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!

You might not know but the club is run entirely by volunteers and we need your help to take the club forward and to become even more successful.

DO YOU EVER ASK YOURSELF:

  • What do I do for DAC?
  • Can I give anything back to the club?
  • What do I know about how the club functions?
  • What do I know about the Club finances?
  • What are the Club plans for the future?

Now is your chance to do something about it! How?

Attend the Club AGM in the players lounge in the main stadium at 7pm Thursday 9th October 2014, light refreshments provided. Full agenda, any items for discussion must be notified at least 21 days before the meeting, to Barry Barnes, Company Secretary.

Please make every effort to attend the meeting
