  • Review of the 117th SCA Annual General Meeting

    Protocol of the 117th SCA Annual General Meeting

    After welcoming participants and honorary guests, and after a minutes silence in honour of deceased members, President Josef Chodakowsky briefly outlined the historical significance of the location of this year’s Annual General Meeting. The president then thanked numerous people and institutions for their on-going support, noting that without this support, the Ski Club Arlberg simply would not be what it is today. The president commented that the club is extremely proud of the success that SCA athletes enjoyed this year, in both Alpine skiing and the Newschool. He then briefly outlined the achievements from last winter season and sincerely congratulated all the SCA athletes. After reviewing the events of the previous year, President Josef Chodakowsky pointed out that in the future it will be important to continue along the pathway that the club has been going over the last few years and to further strengthen the "we" feeling in the Arlberg. He also emphasized the aim of the club to once again hold a large event at the Arlberg, mentioning of course, the importance of Tirol’s bid to hold the 2026 Winter Olympic Games.

    The local representatives from the various branches of the club reported on the club’s activities in the individual villages.

    ·Financially, the Ski Club Arlberg was once again able to record a positive balance. Mag. Barbara Strolz reported on behalf of the SCA Treasurer, Gerhard Eichhorn, that the Ski Club Arlberg currently has 8,421 members from 53 countries. As a result, the club receives a total of 368,708 euros in contributions, as well as some 90,529.81 euros from other sources (sponsorship, donations, advertising in the Annual Report, etc.). From these amounts, some 147,088.50 euros were passed on to the ski associations. These organizations use the contributions to broadly promote snow sports, support particularly talented athletes, and to provide comprehensive insurance to all members. The Ski Club Arlberg spent the proud sum of 200,000 euros on their primary goal, which is to encourage and promote snow sports among young people.

    The Ski Club Arlberg is extremely thankful for the numerous donations made by sponsors and other supporters. Anton Dönz from Getränke Mathies, for example, presented a cheque for over 2,790 euros to the Ski Club Arlberg.

    Under the agenda item of Conferral of Honours, members were honoured for 35, 40, 50 and 60 years of membership. Those who have played a special role in promoting the Ski Club Arlberg received the Promoter’s Award in Silver. Others received the Badge of Achievement in Silver or in Gold.

    To conclude, representatives of diverse associations and clubs passed on their greetings and messages to the SCA.

    The 117th Annual General Meeting concluded with a traditional, triple "Ski-Heil".
