AGM 2012

This year the AGM was held at the official residence of the Canadian Consul General, and what a great way to end the 2012 Canadian Australian Club social calendar! 

With approximately 30+ people in attendance, the actual AGM was short, snappy and completed in 30 minutes. This left for plenty of socialising and drinks in the garden, as the weather Gods were kind enough to hold back the rain.

Highlights of the AGM include past President Chris Warrick proposing that the club dispense with the formal auditing process (motion passed), and the election of the new 2013 committee. A "social audit" was also presented, which informed club members of the current struggles faced by the committee, and demonstrated areas which may need improvement. This social audit sparked a bit of conversation later in the evening, as new and sophesticated "El Presidente" Kathleen Prokopovich mingled with new and experienced members to discuss possible ideas to improve club membership.

Lastly, this was an AGM where we did not have a problem achieving "quorum". All those in attendance would like to thank our wonderful hosts, the Consul General Mario Ste-Marie and his lovely wife Anne Lessard, for opening their home to us. Special thanks also go to Consulate staff Sharon and Christiane, as well as past president Chris Warrick, who brought the evening all together. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say it was a great success, and MERCI BEAUCOUP!!!!
