Hi all,
 
The wind up of the year is approaching quickly. It is a busy time, looking at new Committee make-ups, preparing for the changeover dinner, looking at Strategic Plans, prepping for the 22-23 Budget and so on. I will handing the Secretary's role over to Peter Mackinnon at the end of June in readiness for the President's role. The Secretary's role has been an enjoyable and informative process for me. It is a good way to get to know members and the operating procedures of the Club.
 
It is good to see the Projects Committee having the freedom to allocate funds to worthy projects again. Post COVID, has given us the freedom to raise funds once again and respond positively to Community requests for support. The approvals effected at the Board meeting on Monday night and then ratified at the meeting yesterday are testament to that.
 
The price of the mandatory RDU magazine is to rise again. If members receive an electronic version of the magazine instead of a hard copy, the Club will save $5pa per member. Forty Four members still receive the magazine in print form. If you wish to retain this option please advise me ASAP as I intend to make all subscriptions electronic.
 
Response to the Membership Survey has been positive. If you have not responded please give it some consideration.
