Past updated info… FRIDAY AUGUST THE 3RD. 2018
Hey everyone, I just thought I’d weigh in on where we are and what we’ve done during the summer months.
First off, Garry & Andrew have been working hard to get us the info we need to proceed with the not for profit status update. While it’s still in the works it’s looking very good and we remain hopeful, Why is this important? Well it will mean that we will fall into the proper category that the club actually is and be paying mush less for amenities. This will allow us to be able to afford better lectures etc. etc.
Chris has been working with me to update our on line membership page which will be up and active next week. There will be 3 options to join the club. (A.On Line – with PayPal) (B. Download a PDF form and mail it to us with a cheque) (C. show up to our first meeting in September and we’ll have membership forms there to fill out)
Laura, our new Membership person has worked with me to create the new membership forms that look great.
David, our new Treasurer is setting up his system of checks and balances and will be manning the front desk with Laura the membership director.
I have printed of a new look lanyard/nametag. Everyone who was a member last year will have their lanyard preprinted and available at the front desk of the first meeting.
I have gone to a local T-shirt place and bought myself a T-shirt with the club logo. I also have borrowed 4 other shirts of different sizes. Anyone who wants to get a club shirt will be able to try on the sizes at the first meeting.
James has come up with an amazing line up of talent for the fall season. Not only do we have great people for the first 3 months of meetings but we have sponsored extra lectures in September and November from the Can-Am Lecture tour. As soon as everyone is signed, we’ll be posting and promoting like crazy and asking everyone to help spread the word.
Well I think that’s it. Still a lot to do but it’s being done! Check back here or on the Facebook page for club updates.
Note: if you have a suggestion for the club and you’re using facebook to make the suggestion, if you want me to see it, message me directly and I’ll be sure to see it and reply.
Sunday, June 10th. 2018 – Well we had our banquet at the North York Mandarin and it was a surprisingly good time and a well attended event! Pictures will be posted as soon as they are available.
Our elections were held and this upcoming year has us with a very healthy group of people manning various positions. For more information of the upcoming executive and their contact info, please check out the new “Executive” page of this web site.
