USATF Georgia Delegation Attends Annual Meeting
December 1 - 5, 2014
16 members of the USATF Georgia Association traveled to Anaheim, CA the week of December 1 through 5th, 2014, to attend the USATF Annual Meeting. Once a year delegates from all 57 associations attend the annual event to hear about the state of the organization, meet with USATF Board, and attend various sports and administrative committee meetings.
Every year the governing body takes time to recognize its athletes, coaches, officials and vast network of volunteers who represent USATF at the local level. We are excited to report that this year Georgia was recognized in many ways.
