QCAC 18 April 2017 Dinner Meeting and Annual General Meeting
Harold Thomas, President welcomed members and guests to the dinner and AGM. We then had a delicious Pork loin dinner buffet which was enjoyed by 40 of us. Harold advised that the scrap book was not here this evening. Look for it in October.
Harold asked of there were deceased members we could honour? Thankfully not this month. He also asked if there any ill or distressed members to mention? Harold has spoken to Art Morrow and advised that while Art was having a hard time, he did ask him to say “Hello” to all members. Dave Stafford advised that Delores de Paiva was slowly getting better after her bad car accident.
We had one guest for dinner, Dean Dacko an Aviation Consultant who came with Jim Scott of Canada Jetlines.
Harold thanked the phoning committee and Bruce Bell for their efforts in getting members to a meeting. The numbers were bang on!
Secretary: Maureen Otway presented her last minutes from 21 March dinner meeting. It was moved by Dave Stafford, 2nd by John Laing that they be accepted as distributed. The motion passed.
Membership: John Laing advised that we had 59 Members in good standing and 11 are overdue for this year. Don’t forget our New Year starts in October and we do need all payments by then. Thank you.
Change of Constitution and By-laws: Membership Director John Laing asked if all had perused the proposed Constitution and By-laws including the change in the Constitution to move Paragraph 3. of the Constitution to the By-laws and remove Paragraph 4, “The provisions contained in this Constitution, Part 1, are unalterable”, in its entirety. This draft was sent to all members by e-mail and regular mail to read and comment back to him. It should now comply with the new Societies Act of B.C. and update the Constitution and By-laws to reflect the practices we now use. It was moved by Bruce Bell and seconded by Ed Scott that the draft be adopted as presented. On question being called, this motion was unanimously carried.
