The Calgary Ski Club held its Annual General Meeting at the Railway Orientation House at Heritage Park on Friday, April 22nd 2016. Members were welcomed with a light meal and beverages served in the adjoining restaurant before the meeting commenced at 7:00 pm sharp.
President Lynn Bowers welcomed the 32 members in attendance and proceeded through the Agenda; including a change to bylaws to allow proxy voting being passed. Presentations from all Council Directors for their various areas of expertise were presented, A short break was provided to allow members to stretch their legs and refill their beverages. Two of the door prizes - bottles of wine - were drawn at this time. The meeting continued with a short update from Alasdair Fergusson regarding the Shaganappi Snow-making Project.. Erika Harrison presented a review of how Meet Up progressed through the year prior to a motion being called to agree to use Meet Up as our event promoter going forward. The majority of attendees were in favour of this.
Elections were held. Lynn Bowers, President; Richard Graham, Vice President, Maryann Fitzpatrick, Secretary/Treasurer and Abraham George, Cross Country Lessons Director all agreed to stay in their respective positions. Ted Traynor, Activities Director, Michael Kieser, Jackrabbits Director and Carrie Froese, Marketing Director all stepped down from their posts.
No nominations were received for these vacant positions and a call for nominations from the floor was unsuccessful. These positions remain vacant.
Two members of the Club were appointed to review the 2015-16 Financials and they will meet with the Treasurer and the Office Administrator in June.
Final remarks were presented by the President and the meeting closed at 9:10 pm.
Discussion as to a better night to hold the next year's AGM revealed Thursday might be a better option to avoid competing with members weekend plans. The meal before hand was appreciated but needed to be more substantial, and the offer of beverages before and after was well received.
The last two door prizes were drawn and the attendees retired to the adjoining restaurant for an enjoyable evening of socializing, munchies and beverages of their choice.
It was agreed this venue was an excellent choice and recommendations were to use it again next year.
