As you probably know by now, Monday 7th October was the CCÉ A.G.M. There were some changes in the Executive and some new faces joined in. Rita Walker, our esteemed long-running Secretary decided not to run again. Also, Chris George and Emily Funston are not returning this year. On behalf of the whole of CCÉ Ottawa Branch we want to thank all departing members for all their great work over the years. At the meeting, the executive presented the annual report and took questions from the members. If you want to see the list of the Executive for the 2013-2014 season, please go to the Contact Us page and you will see the whole list.
Here you can see the new 2013 Executive, the only officer missing is the new P.R.O.
Also, at the A.G.M. it was explained the reason for recent increases now in effect, for our Branch membership dues and fees at our céilís. The membership fee increase, effective as of this year’s renewal, is due to the rising administrative cost within Comhaltas at the Provincial level. As stated in the Branch Report delivered at the October 2012 AGM, the Branch absorbed this increase for this year (2013).
The increases implemented at the céilís, starting this September, have been put in place to offset the rise in hall rental rates as well as insurance costs.
The Ottawa Comhaltas Branch is alive and well due in no small measure to your continued and valued support.
