At the recent Annual General Meeting Michael Lockley was elected to the position of Vice Commodore after serving one year of a three year term as a Director. Consequently the Board are required to appoint a Director to fill the casual vacancy until the next AGM when an election will be held for the balance of the term.
Having several members express their interest, the Board conducted a thorough review of the skills and capabilities of the current directors in order to identify the best possible candidate. It gives me great pleasure to advise members that the board resolved at the recent August meeting to appoint Rick Welch (The Bolter, Sydney 38 OD) to fill the position. On accepting his appointment Rick has indicated he intends to stand for election at the next AGM so he may have the opportunity to complete the entire term.
On behalf of the entire board, I welcome Rick and I also thank all those members who offered their assistance, time and expertise. The club is blessed to have such depth and interest from the membership and this bodes very well for the future.
Chairman of the Board - RPAYC
