Financial Report – Treasurer
Br Chan was calling in from Taiwan and there were some technical difficulties, so Br Goertzen assisted. Calgary Area Council remitted its audit, financial statements and 2017 budget proposal on February 14, 2017. CAC made $8,795.00 budget proposal and $1345.00 was approved. This took into consideration the existing $700.00 year end balance. We have potential for another $7000.00 to cover things like the fall Leadership Brunch, Labour Day BBQ, CLiFF, Member Appreciation events, etc. Business cases will be required for these projects before funding will be provided by REVP office.
Action Plan/Budget 2017
The ice cream day in 2016 was a big hit at the Harry Hays Building (HHB). Br. Goertzen would like to see us do it again, but possibly at another site; perhaps the airport, or another smaller centre with our members. And perhaps do it twice – once in July and one other month.
Br Chan will work this as it was his idea originally. Br Chan suggested if we are doing smaller sites, the ice cream truck might be too expensive and that we could look into purchasing the large tubs and dispense it ourselves. We could do two sites in one day.
Br Goertzen brought up that we are again boycotting National Public Service Week (NPSW) and the RO is looking at planning an event for the Harry Hays Building with AC assistance. Perhaps we could do ice cream bars and say something like “Left in the Cold by Phoenix – Boycott NPSW”. This may addresses doing something at Harry Hays, but not doing another ice cream truck day there.
Br Goertzen advised we will hold another meeting in the summer and planning for the brunch, and other activities will be discussed then.
