Probus Club Meeting

The Chairman opened the meeting with the Chairman`s report covering the previous 12 months and highlighted:

  • the excellent work of Barrie Fitton, the Treasurer of the Club for 7 years who recently retired through ill health
  • the excellent recruitment of 8 new members to the club
  • the urgent need to appoint a new Treasurer and Secretary
  • the very good year for club visits.

Other reports were provided by the President/Secretary, the Treasurer, the Membership Secretary and the Events Coordinator.

A proposal was made to change the Constitution of the Club mainly addressing Dress Code (relaxation in the summer months) and the process of election of a new President. The proposal, after discussion, was approved by the members.

The meeting then moved on to elect the new officers for the ensuing year  who will be led by the new Chairman, Tony Brown.

The meeting concluded with 3 of the newly appointed members each giving a short presentation of their career and life to date.
