As I get ready to hand over to the incoming Secretary, Lauren Simons, I just want to thank all who were at the AGM on Thursday. What a positive showing!
There are still a few spots to fill on the Officers slate as well as in various Committees. I was asked to point out that serving on a non-Executive Committee does not necessarily involve attending meetings, just being part of an idea panel and lending your support for specific functions. So, please, if you have any great ideas and would like to help out – which you all said you would when you joined!- please sign up for the remaining spots. Many hands, etc.
We do need both a Rear Commodore to head up water activities at the Club, and a Vice Commodore to supervise land-based ones. As you may be aware, the Membership at the meeting was fully in support of hiring a Club Manager, so that will be happening soon – this will mean that some of the load involved in those jobs has been spread. You also have a core of experienced officers to ensure everything is running smoothly. So, please consider it! Executive Committee meetings are once per month.
And now for the new Officers and Committee members…drum roll please…
