ZVYC AGM Subs Increase Correction 2017

Dear Members Subscription Increases for the 2017/2018 Season I take full responsibility for the confusion created by my Commodores report around the fee increase and apologize unreservedly for reporting the incorrect fee increase. In my report, I referred to our subscriptions incorrectly as increasing by inflationary increase of only 6.67%. Regrettably, the increase of 6.67% was used in our first draft budget. To balance the budget with cuts in expenditure, we had to increase the subscriptions of memberships be 10% for most categories of membership for the season ahead. Once again, we are looking for a treasurer for ZVYC for the season ahead; your assistance in this regard will be highly appreciated by both the club and the committee. Yours sincerely Mark Thompson ZVYC Commodore ____________________________________________________________________________ Please be reminded that our AGM is TONIGHT.
