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.
PRESIDENT’S REPORTDear Fellow Members, Since my last report the refurbishment of the fi rst fl oor meeting room has been completed. Our meeting rooms, as well as proving invaluable to our various sub-clubs, are a source of welcome revenue from a number of organisations who fully appreciate the facilities and ambience of our Club. The decision of your Board to outsource our catering took effect on 5th May. There were a small number of teething problems which were promptly addressed but overall the transition was smooth. Diners on the second fl oor are enjoying the choice offered by new, improved and enlarged menus. New menus for Cello’s will follow. The long awaited improvements to air conditioning on fl oors 6 to 11 are programmed to commence on 21st July, I ask members to bear with us over any inconvenience which may occur.
