Before our meeting on 23 May, the club held its AGM for 2015-16, chaired by Dave Minzey. The 19 members present elected a new committee for the next Toastmaster year which runs from 1 July to 30 June.
Normally, the club President can only hold office for one year at a time but as Tony Fasulo only took over from Emmanuel Bolade part way through the year, he was eligible to continue. Members duly voted Tony in as President for a ‘second term’.
The full list of officers for next year is:
President: Tony Fasulo
Vice President – Education: Steve Whiting
Treasurer: Jenny Chalmers
Vice President – Membership: Ian Haynes
Vice President – PR: Victor Taufa
Secretary / Vice President – Mentoring: Essie Rewane-Adejare
Sergeant at Arms: Esha Sokhi
Congratulations to first-time committee members Esha, Essie and Victor. The first date in the 2016-17 calendar is Club Officer Training on Saturday 9 July at Cranfield (10 am to noon). All members are welcome to attend this training session – you don’t have to be a club officer – particularly if you would like to learn more about what each role involves and meet members from other clubs in the area.
