PRESIDENT’S REPORTDear Fellow Members, All members should have received my message of 7 September about the forthcoming Board elections. A reading of the annual report, which appears in this edition of the magazine, will indicate that the Club, like all others, will require a Board for the next two years which is experienced and able to make difficult decisions. All nominees for Board membership consent to attend, if requested, a meeting with a person or persons nominated by the Board to discuss their understanding of the desirable attributes and the duties of a Director. I urge you to consider carefully any nomination and to look well to your ballot. In an article in this edition I have set out in some detail major events in the life of the Club over the past year. Accordingly, I shall use this opportunity to report on those responsible for various aspects of the Club’s activities.
