The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association announced today that Tom Thompson has resigned as President of the organization for personal reasons effective immediately.
The WYSA Board of Directors struck a nominating committee to be chaired by Past President Alastair Gillespie along with Director of Finance Ron Malech and Director of Outdoor David Holder. The Board has asked the nominating committee to canvass the soccer community to find a suitable candidate as soon as possible. The Board plans to appoint a new president based on recommendations from the committee to serve out the balance of the elected term, which ends in 2014. Through its constitution, WYSA’s membership has empowered the Board to appoint a replacement for the balance of the term.
The WYSA Board of Directors thanks Mr. Thompson for his service to the organization and to youth soccer. Mr. Thompson said he will remain active within the soccer community.
