President’s Newsletter June
& July 2018
am apologising for missing June’s Monthly Newsletter. I have
been very busy with my other volunteer commitments. So I am
combining 2 months into 1.
Publicity Team organised the half page advertising the Club’s
Open Day as seen in the Local Paper the Independent. Great Job
Bob MacPherson and Alison Fiddy.
Management Committee welcomes 2 new Committee Members. Warren
Rackham and Gary Waddell, Both these men have held these
position on committee before. They will fill 2 vacancies caused
by the departure of committee members Jenny Crerar and John
Fiddy. We wish Jenny and John well, and thank them for their
valued service to the club and the committee. Warren and Gary
have become committee members as allowed under our constitution.
This is until the elections at next AGM.
attendance to some classes is very low and sometime Leaders turn
up to nil attendance. This is very disappointing that members
would stay away and not inform the office. As the leaders (who
volunteer their time and travel expenses) arrive to no show
class. It is rare but does happen. If you cannot attend a class
please notify the Club’s Office in time for leader to be
notified before they arrive at the club.
At the July’s
Management Committee Meeting, The committee decided to increase
some of the fees members pay. Annual Membership will rise from
$10.00 to $15.00 as of the 1st January 2019. Class
fees have increased from $5.00 to $6.00 from start of Term 5 on
Monday 27th August 2018. Also the Christmas Parties
booking fee has risen from $5.00 to $10.00 per Financial Member.
This had to happen, because of rising operation cost.
Wednesday 4th July 2018, the club held an open day
introduction. At the Civic Centre Maclean to recruit new
members, it was a success. 10 new members signed up to join us.
We have to recruit new members to retain our membership around
180 to 200 current membership.
you have any suggestions to increase class attendance, please
contact Bob Macpherson or myself we need your input.
think seriously of attending a class in Term 5, we need your
support. Computer Technology and Computer Programmes are
updating and change at an accelerated rate and therefore you
need to update your knowledge and use of your computer, IPad and
Tablet, and Phones. Also Smart TV’s and the many streaming
channels now available.
