BC Athletic Commission
soliciting new board members

The Braxton County Athletic Expansion Commission, Inc. is recruiting new Board of Directors’ members. Anyone interested in serving on the Board of Directors or for more information, should contact Evelyn Post at 304-439-1863 or Vicky Murphy at 304-364-8600.
The Athletic Expansion Commission was created a few years ago with the goal of building a major sports facility to serve our youth and the community at large. The group was able to raise several dollars but the majority of those dollars were returned to the original donors upon request; however, there are still funds left over from those who chose to leave their donation with the group. The Board would like to recruit interested individuals to serve as Board members to take this goal forward.
The only qualification to serve is a genuine desire to move forward and work hard towards improving the athletic facilities in Braxton County. If new Board members are not recruited, the corporation will be dissolved and the remaining funds will be donated to an athletic facility.
