ISSC Annual General Meeting

The ISSC 2010 AGM will take place Sunday November 21st at Mount Pleasant Community Center, 4-6pm. (Kingsway & East 8th ave)
2010 was the 35th anniversary for the ISSC and has been an extremely successful year both on and off the field.
The year kicked off with a seven-a-side, mixed football league. Our Vancouver Tournament in June hosted 4 visiting teams and managed to field 3 Ladies football teams, two men’s football teams and a men’s Hurling team. The Vancouver Harps Ladies’s team remains the undefeated Western Canadian Champions. The Vancouver Harps men’s team was also crowned Western Canadian Champions and for the first year ever, the Vancouver Harps Hurling team participated in the North American Championships Gaelic Games in Chicago bringing home the title of Junior ‘A’ champions.
The ISSC hopes to continue to celebrate these great successes into 2011 and the future. We rely heavily on the support and efforts of our committee members and our Sponsors to achieve this.
We are inviting you to volunteer or nominate others via email for the following positions:
Executive Board
Vice – President
Committee Members
Ladies Football Rep.
Men’s Football Rep.
Hurling Rep.
Field Booking Rep.
Social Rep.
Committee Member at large
Support Roles
Manager & Trainer for Ladies football teams x 3
Manager & Trainer for Men’s football teams x 2
Manager & Trainer for Hurling
In order to continue the success the ISSC has seen over the past number of years there is a need for our members to take as active a role as possible in the club’s operation and growth.
We encourage all member to make the effort to attend.
If you have any questions please let me know,
