Bill Quinlisk assumes Adirondack association president position

(1 - May) Bill Quinlisk assumed the duties of president for the USATF Adirondack Association as of May 1st.  The former president Abigail Atkins resigned due to increasing work commitments. Per Adirondack Bylaws Vice-President Quinlisk assumed the reins of office until the next scheduled election.
The Adirondack Association Board of Directors thanked Abby Atkins for her years of service that included much needed reevaluation of financial responsibilities. Bill Quinlisk promised that the changes begun under President Atkins will continue and noted that the Association finances are stable and are on the path to an independence that will eventually enhance all Association programs.
Although relatively new to the Adirondack Association area, Quinlisk brings a wealth of experience to the job with over 45 years of High School and College coaching and officiating experience. He is currently the USATF National Masters Cross Country Representative and a member of the National Cross Country Council, and serves as the Vice Chairman of the National Masters Long Distance Running Committee. He is a past President of the USATF Niagara Association and a Master Level USATF certified official.  Bill and his wife Patricia Warth moved to Delmar 2 years ago. He is currently a part-time Assistant Track & Field Coach at RPI. 
New President Quinlisk has called for any individuals interested in becoming an officer or Board member to send an email to him.  The nomination process will begin soon with elections at the end of the summer.
