QCAC April 16, 2019 AGM Dinner Meeting
In the absence of Ed Scott, after a delicious buffet dinner the meeting was opened by Peter Van Hee.
Peter advised that we have only 64 paid up members this year. As our members are getting older and that the participation is not that good. We need to ask the members why. He thanked all the members who attend regularly. But all members need to be aware that we could be in danger of having to close the club.
John Laing gave a Notice of Motion that should the Club be unable to fill the Directors positions as mandated in our By-laws on or before the Regular Meeting on 17 March 2020, at that meeting I will move or cause to be moved that:
“In accordance with Article 1 of its bylaws this Quarter Century in Aviation Club be dissolved at the Annual General Meeting on 21 April 2020.”
Harold Thomas asked for some input from the floor and asked for members to step forward to help run the club. We are all recycled and need some new blood. So please can we take it in turns and all help in the running of this club.
Several people spoke from the floor and suggested that perhaps we only have one or two meetings a year. Or perhaps fold into another Aviation related club.
Peter asked for a show of hands on which areas the members come from in the lower mainland. Most from the area around Richmond but the rest are spread from all over. So we will proceed to still have 6 meetings a year and see what happens.
First order is the Election of officers for this next year. Nominations are asked from the floor.
The directors that are needed are:
President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Directors at Large to fulfill the following positions: Speakers, Calling Committee etc.
So the following names were put forward and accepted to fill the board. The positions will be decided at the next committee meeting on Jun 4, 2019.
