2016 AGM Report
Well the 2016 AGM has come and gone, and there a few things worth noting
Our financial position, while not exactly precarious, is a matter for some concern. Our main sources of income are the monthly raffles and membership fees. This year they didn't keep up with expenditure, so we really need to look at some alternative means of fund raising.
The first, introduced by our treasurer Steve Bourke, is to raise the membership fees. This was accepted after much discussion. Surprisingly the attitude from the floor of the meeting was that the fees should be raised by more than the modest increase initially suggested. This is addressed in a separate article, but the outcome is that General Membership will increase to $35.00, Concession to $30.00 and Associate to $10.00.
Norm VK3XCI was tasked with investigating the possibility of Mildura Rural City Council grant funding. There has been some research done and the results will be discussed at the committee meeting on Thursday 28th July. There is a lead time of six months and the application process is quite convoluted, so don't expect much before Feb 2017!
Election of Office Bearers
The executive and committee were returned unchanged except for the inclusion of a 5th general committee position duly moved, seconded and passed. Norm VK3XCI is the fifth committeeman. Contact details for the committee are on the Contacts page.
The meeting concluded with a couple of very interesting video presentations courtesy of Noel VK3FI, and of course the traditional AGM raffle wrangled by Ray VK3HSR, prizes courtesy of our generous sponsors.
