President's ReportDear Fellow Members, The General Manager’s Report in this magazine outlines the work done in hotel rooms and fire services upgrading. Necessary repairs to windows at the front of the building have commenced. Your Board is actively pursuing heritage grants to assist with the cost not only of this work but also future repairs to the western wall. Your Board is conscious of the need to replace air conditioning equipment on the upper fl oors of the hotel as well as improving air conditioning standards on fl oors 6 and 7. I anticipate that at our strategic planning forum decisions will be made about priorities in relation to these various projects and other works. In our last magazine I mentioned that as at December last our membership stood at 3228. The Christmas/ New Year period a number of our members did not renew their membership despite polite reminders.
