L-R. Marilyn, Susan, Greg, Denice, Lyn. Absent Sarah.
A small number of members attended. Margaret Dawson chaired the meeting.
Reports presented included the President’s Report, Financial Report and Class Coordinators Report.
We managed to achieve our aim of 50 new members for the year however there are still a number of members who have not renewed their membership so far.
I would like to encourage members to become financial to help us achieve financial viability. Unfortunately 2022 saw a deficit of $3300 for the year. The committee has reduced costs wherever possible but the smaller number of financial members compared with previous years has contributed to the loss.
Membership fees have not increased since 2016 and it seems inevitable that membership fees will have to increase next year if we are to keep running. Any proposed increase will be put to members at a special general meeting.
