NOTE FROM SLSC'S NEW COMMODORE
Thank you all who attended the Sylvan Lake Sailing Club's Annual General Meeting on Saturday October 26th held at the Sylvan Lake Legion. We have an exciting year ahead! There was very passionate conversation by those in attendance. For those who did not attend, the following is a quick update. Please refer to the AGENDA for details.
Congratulations on the election of the Club Officers for 2014 (for the complete list including email, view the SLATE OF OFFICERS) ~ I look forward to working with this great group of colleagues:
|Vice Commodore||Linda Boyd|
|Past Commodore||Chris Stanley|
|Fleet Captain||Nick Partridge|
|Director of Assets||Chris Waters|
As to the Committee Boat Funding Request (see below): there was some good conversation which brought better clarity. With this clarity a motion was put forward for criteria clarification. This motion (see below) was whether or not to adopt the criteria list as presented.
"As a paid active member of The Sylvan Lake Sailing Club do you approve a one time expenditure of $21 000.00 dollars for the purchase of a Committee Boat for Club; with an additional $4000.00 budgeted for a maintenance Reserve Fund with $1000.00 dollars added annually to the Reserve Fund?"
Yes - 25; No - 5 = Funding Request Approved
2nd Motion "Do you accept the criteria list as presented?"
Yes - 21; No - 6 = Criteria Adopted
Thank you all for your input on this matter. As an Executive we will be communicating with members as we move forward with this venture.
Another great discussion point was in regards to the development of our Race Management program which received overwhelming support. Moving forward, please check your emails often for membership updates.
Please be patient as we perform housekeeping on our website. Lynn Sutherland, who has done a wonderful job maintaining our website, has decided to pursue other endeavours. We are truly thankful for all her hard work and wish her all the best in her future. As some of our Club officers move on I would also like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work as our former Executive.
I am truly honored to be given the opportunity to act as Commodore for the Sylvan Lake Sailing Club. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email COMMODORE@SYLVANSAILING.CA.
Jeff Prior, Commodore
