BUICK OWNERS CLUB OF WA (INC)

PRESIDENTS REPORT 2015-2016

The preceding 12 months have in many ways been very successful for our club.

This success however has been overshadowed by the passing of two of the Clubs most valuable and active members in Tony Howe and Alan Haime.  Their passing was sudden and the effect it had on members was profound.  The amount of emails and phone calls received testifies to the popularity and fondness the Club held for them and their families.

There has also been illness in the Club and fortunately those affected have come through with flying colours.

On a brighter note, we have maintained a financially stable Club.  The Committee has reviewed the Club finances and decided it will not be necessary to increase membership fees for the forthcoming year.

Our membership has increased from 67 in the previous year to 75 this year and we continue to receive inquiries usually generated by our website.

New members who joined during the year are:-

Greg Churchman                                1962 Wildcat

Tim & Yvonne Blyth                            vehicle unknown

Rob & Sue Young                                1940 Special 8 sedan

Robert & Cheryl Quinn-Schofield       1926 (uted) to be restored

Neville & Maxine Cullenane               no vehicle (Buick)

Clark & Monique Stasiw                     1967 Electra 225 convertible

Jason & Kristy May                             1953 Special

Nigel & Donna Naughton                    1926 Master 6 coupe

At this time however, we note that some members have yet to renew their subscription and I urge all members to make payment before the 31st July to ensure the continuance of the Buick News and also to protect their concessional license.

The Club also faces some challenges over the next 12 months in the areas of taxation, the ongoing saga of Code 404 and the changes to the rules of Incorporation which means our Constitution will have to be rewritten.  We also face the challenge to find new and varied destinations for our meetings and events which are of interest to all our members including the ladies and any suggestions which are forthcoming will be gratefully accepted.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Committee for their efforts as their dedication and input goes a long way to ensure the future of our Club.  A special mention must be made of the support I receive from my right hand man Bev.

Finally I would like to thank our members, without whom we would not be able to enjoy the friendly and successful Club we have become.
