A key strength of England Athletics is how we bring together our core staff and the elected volunteer councils in our regions. The elected regional chairs from each elected council come together to form the England Athletics National Council, a body which evaluates the needs and requirements of the sport in formulating proposals for consideration and action by the Board of England Athletics Ltd.
The National Council includes the Regional Council chairs and is an advisory and best practice sharing group which works to help shape national strategy and direction.
The chair of the National Council is elected by the members of the National Council. Two members of National Council sit on the Board of England Athletics.
Allan Wort is a committee member of Warrington A.C and President of Cheshire County Athletics Association. A qualified accountant, business director and consultant for the last thirty-five years, his interests in the sport are in making sure that grassroots clubs can survive and thrive.
His main aim as chair of the National Council is to help the national council be more effective as the critical friend the EA board needs over the next two problematic years.
