CEO Message - November 2018

Dear Members,

On the 17th of October the President's Cocktail Party was held for long standing members of 25 years and above. It was well visited and all guests enjoyed the evening.

The Club held it's AGM on Thursday the 18th of October 2018, and those of you in attendance heard the President's message stating what we were able to achieve in 2017/18. The first quarter of this Financial Year started a little slower than expected.

This year we once again were required to run a postal ballot to elect the 2018/19 Board. We received 11 nominees for election and I would like to thank all Candidates and all voters for taking part. 

The elected Directors were announced at the AGM, the Board has remained unchanged from the previous year. The positions of President, Vice President and Treasurer were determined at the Board Meeting that followed the AGM. 

Mr Michael Callanan (President)
Mr Jim Warren (Vice President)
Ms Megan Lavender (Treasurer) 
Mr Robert Armitage (Director)
Mr Morgan Kelly (Director)
Mr Graeme Jones (Direcotr)
Mr Fabian Marsden (Director)
Mr Nigel Renton (Director)
Mr Peter Reed (Director)

Earlier this month we sent out an information memorandum to all members regarding the future of the Club. Your feedback has been noted, with a lot of positive responses and feedback, and we will be sure to keep you posted as more information comes in. 

May I please remind all members that the Club will be closed from the 2nd of January 2019 till the 22nd of January 2019 when we reopen. A lot of you will be pleased to know that we are installing a new computer system which will enable us to streamline processes internally and externally.

As you all know, we do this so we can action maintenance issues  we cannot get to during opening times. The Club also gets a major clean and freshen up. We do apologise for any inconvenience. 

2018 has nearly come to an end and once again the past year has just flown by. I have now been with the Club for nearly 8 years, and I would like to thank all members for making me feel welcome , as well as all your support and contributions you have made during the last 12 months and indeed throughout my time here.

As always at this time of year, we ask Members' to acknowledge the great efforts of the team by way of gratuity, your staff are always extremely grateful for your contributions. 

Yours sincerely, 

Markus Friedler
CEO & Secretary Manager
