HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Here is hoping everyone had a safe and healthy holiday season.
As most of you are aware, we are coming up to time for our Annual General Meeting. Because of the Covid-19 situation, it has been decided to postpone this meeting for up to six months. Six months is the legal amount of time we are allowed to do a postponement. Since the Executive/Directors Committee all agreed to stay on for this year, there will be no need to install new officers. Everyone was installed last January.
The only new item that has happened is the purchase of a new copy machine for the office. We were informed that parts for our present copier will no longer be available in 2021 because of the age of the machine. Gold Business Technologies Ltd. is the company that has been servicing our copier offered us a new machine for $1299, (usually $1799) if we wished to purchase one prior to the end of 2020. They also gave us the option to continue leasing one on a five year contract as we have done in the past. No matter which option we chose, they would continue to service the machine. After some consideration, it was decided that purchasing would be the best way to go as it would save the membership quite a bit in the long run.
If there are any issues that you, as a member, feel needs to be addressed by the Membership, please contact anyone of the Executive Committee at 250 837-9456 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy New Year Everyone,
Ruth Boettger, President
