2014 AGM Summary

Last Updated: 11 December 2014

Firstly, I would like to thank all the members that came out to the AGM. It's important for members to show interest and take part in how the association runs. Your valuable feedback allows the executive to understand what the members would like to see in the future, and how things have been handled in the past.  A big thanks to Daryl & Village Pizza for making sure we had enough delicious pizza and wings to put us in a food coma.

 The following issues/items were discussed, and voted appon:

 1.  The new constitution was ratified. All the proposed ammendments were passed, which included changes to membership types, and membership prices.  Under the new catagories (which were implemented 1-April-2014), more members will be classified as Regular. See the membership application or the constitution ammendments for details. The other major change was the pricing for memberships for the catagories. Starting 1-April-2015, membership prices will be Regular $35, Ordinary $50, and Associate $125. Junior memberships (Ages 16 and under) will be FREE to CFBEGA. (Does not include BCGA)

Notes from the Exec (Oct 2014)

Last Updated: 05 November 2014

During the October Executive meeting its has been felt acouple of items needed to be addressed.

 

1)  Golf course memberships:  The support from the local golf courses has been nothing short of amazing.  We have established "Player Agreements", which have allowed us all to play at these courses for a discounted price. The executive highly encourages players to take advantage of these reduced prices, and when you are at the golf course make sure you let them know you are CFBEGA member, and maybe alittle thanks to the Pro.  However, we need to keep playing at courses that we buy memberships at, or CFBEGA might have to pay the course the remainder of the membership at years end.  Currently at Olympic View, use by our membership has been down at this course, and the association may finish "in the red". If you have not been to Olympic View in awhile, maybe this would be a good time!
