July Magazine 2006

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.
