CAC AGM & X-Mas Party

03 Dec 2011 8:04 PM | Deleted user

There was an abbreviated agenda but we still managed to get through:

  • Approving proposed amendments to the Constitution (please see the new Constitution here: www.canadianaustralianclub.com/Constitution)
  • Noting and agreeing operational changes to the Executive Committee and the nature and frequency of committee meeting (please see the AGM 2011 minutes), and last but by no means least,
  • Electing our new, slimmed down Committee for 2012.

This latter item was as successful as these elections have been in recent years, returning a full slate of officers and volunteers – some new faces, some familiar returnees – for a complete committee (!), as follows:

  • President:                  Chris Warrick
  • Treasurer:                  Jeff Downs
  • Membership:              Brenda Misener
  • Events:                      Catriona Kerr
  • Volunteer Coordinator:Kathleen Prokopovich

…ably supported by four Key Volunteers:  Maria,  Sarah H, Dale P and Pam T as well as a number of additional volunteers.

Chris Betcher returns in an Ex-officio capacity as Webmaster and all members were once again encouraged to put their hands up to volunteer to help with running particular events.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from the new Committee as they get up to speed in the New Year.

After a successful AGM, new and old CAC members kicked off the holiday season with the CAC monthly mixer and Christmas party! Members had a great time catching up, drinking, eating and buying raffle tickets. The CAC committee would like to give a BIG thank you to David Cost-Chrétien of the Canadian Way for his generous donation of smoked salmon, caviar and other Canadian produce for us to raffle off. This year all proceeds from the raffle went to Australia Red Cross, and the club managed to raise $100 for this very worthy organization.

CAC members in attendance at the Quay West Hotel were able to eat, drink and be merry and celebrate the start of the holiday season.

The CAC committee wishes all CAC members a happy Christmas and New Year, and we hope to see all of you at the next monthly mixer!
