President's Report

Dear Fellow Members, Our Annual General Meeting will be conducted on Monday 27th November 2006 commencing at 1pm. It marks the completion of another year of profi table trading which compares favorably with our 2005 result. I draw your attention to the notice of that Meeting which appears on page 5 of this edition of our Magazine and commend your attention to the Directors’ Report for the year ended 30 June 2006 and the Financial Statements which also appear in these pages. The President’s Dinner was conducted in Cello’s Restaurant on Saturday 2nd September with approximately 95 in attendance. Our Guests of Honour again included our Patron, M W Bro Tony Lauer whose wife Joy was unfortunately unable to attend because of last minute baby sitting problems. My thanks go to all those who contributed to making the evening a memorable one. As I write this report work on the restoration and repairs to the Western wall of our Club premises is about to begin. This is an important step in your Board’s ongoing program of maintaining our building and its contents.

President's Report

Dear 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.

Dear FellowMembers, Since my last report much has happened in thelife of our Club. The Board elections conducted in November saw two of our directors, Iris Morgan and Warren French, not offering themselves for re-election. I thank them on your behalf for their wholehearted contribution over past years to the successful running of the Club. Their places have been filled by Doug Cumming and Charles Lucre. The Board elected Vice President, Lindsay Payne and our Treasurer,Stephen Bates, as Convenors respectively of the House, Supply & Staff Committee and the Finance Committee. I look forward to working closely with both of them and with our ubiquitous General Manager, Warren Lewis. Our Annual General Meeting was conducted on 28th November in Cello’s Restaurant with 54 members in attendance including our Patron Tony Lauer. I thank all those whose contributions ensured a prompt and effi cient dispatch of the business to be conducted.
