From the President’s Desk

From the President’s desk …

This is my last report leading up to our AGM on the 8th of August at 5.30pm before our dinner meeting.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time serving you, our Business Club Members, over the last 12 months.

You can read my detailed report here.

It certainly was a year full of variety from on-line meetings, our memorable 60th Gala and then returning to GMHBA and our dinner format. Our dinners have featured spotlights on previous presidents, long-serving members and executive officers as well as the acknowledgment of our 10 and 20 year members.

For the first time we penned our Vision and Values as a committee, so members and prospective members know what the essence of The Geelong Business Club. A key addition was to establish a Risk and Governance Subcommittee and we now have a host of policies created for the effective governance of the Club and the Committee.

Additionally we now have a Club Video, created by Howl Media, which speaks to the Club, who we are and why we exist.

And we have, as we always do, learnt so much of what’s happening in our region and beyond through our special guest speaker line-up this last year.

As I hand over the reins to our new President – Scott Warren – I wanted to say thank you. Thankyou to you, our members, the Committee and Executive Officer for your commitment to the Club and each other.

Together we are stronger!
