President’s Report – Sept 2016

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Well it’s been a long time since I wrote my last President’s report for this newsletter. So here we go again.

Firstly, Congratulations to this club and its members for finally coming of age and accepting a new Constitution. What a tremendous job Mike Temby and the committee have done to give us and up to date, workable Constitution which allows up to proceed us to proceed forward without the divisive membership criteria of the past and the ability to review the document on a regular basis and make changes as required fairly simply. Our past (91) Constitution I must say served us well for a long time but as with all such documents became outdated.

As Vice President for the membership year, it was my privilege to be able to nominate Ian Rigby for the Vice President’s Award. As I said at the AGM, Ian over the last year was the convenor of our Day of Triumph Event, organised a Club visit to the Sub Marine Corporation (which would not have been easy) has organised several club runs and contributed to our club magazine, has supplied some fabulous photos for our club calendar, is a member of our National Rally Committee and is an all-round good guy!

I look forward to working with our (new) committee for the next 12 months and continue to work for the greater good of our club.

I feel privileged to be awarded Life membership of this Club for Margie and myself and thank you all for this acknowledgement.

Until we meet again

Bill Berlemon
