Presidents Message February 23, 2018

24 Feb 2018 7:45 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

As we enter the next few months it is evident that the club is busy and hopping.  We have several club volunteers stepping up to help on some CARA supported events such as 2018 Cookie Race (Feb 24th), 2018 Cochrane Winter Rally (Mar 4th), the 2018 CARA Casino (Mar 8th and 9th) and the upcoming 2018 CARA Spring Flea Market (Apr 14th).

These events could not be there without your support.  Thank you, volunteers!

There is still a need for additional volunteers at some of these events.  Please login to the CARA website and reach out to the event coordinators to see how you could help.  Information can be found both in the event calendar and in the members blogs on the website.

The executive has also been on a few different fronts.

CSCC Club Station

We continue to work with the CSCC executive to get updates on the remediation of the bathrooms and to ensure appropriate documentation indicating that the building is a safe location that we can all enjoy once again.

Casino Funds

The executive continues to explore our current and previous unspent Casino Funds to ensure we are funding projects that meet the use of proceeds requirements and benefits our club, its members, and the overall general public and amateur community.  As we prepare for our 2018 Casino we intended to have any outstanding funds assigned to approved projects so a clean slate can be had with the 2018 funds.

Revisions to the Policy Manual

There are some revisions to the policy manual which will be posted on the website and Key Klix.  There were some items that didn’t seem clear or seemed counter to the bylaws.  We look forward to your feedback at the next general meeting or through the website.

2018 Spring Flea Market

We are still in need of several volunteers to help out with the event.  Please contact the CARA executive if you are interested in volunteering some of your time at the event. 

We are working on setting up learning conferences, raffle and door prizes, and many other things…. I look forward to seeing many of you at this event.
