Camporee 2017 - Abridged Minutes AGM

Executive members present:

Past Chair: Aaron Goodman & Adele Pick
Current Chair: Jim & Lois Jackson
Vice Chair: Stan & Mary Smith
Treasurer: Bill & Diane Molson
Secretary: Debbie & Denis Bertrand



Chairman Jim Jackson called for a moment of silence
to remember those members no longer with us, those in need of our thoughts and prayers,
and for members of our armed forces serving overseas.
Aaron recognized and thanked all the committee chairs for their contributions,
and recognized Elaine and Gary Demand, along with seven other couples from Michigan Chapter 121.
Vice-Chair, Stan Smith, thanked Jim & Lois, and committee members.

Minutes of the 2016 Camporee were summarized by Debbie Bertrand.
A motion for acceptance was made, seconded and approved by large majority.

The treasurer, Bill Molson, reported that the Camporee remains on sound financial footing.
Members should expect an small increase in fees for 2018, and expressed that we need to have registered
at least fifty units ( 50 ) to have that rate, and the use of the hall. This year's income
gives us a small cushion to cover expenses.

Adele reported that we had 50 units on site, with three more who had registered,
but were unable to attend.
We also did have dance visitors on both days, but total not yet determined.

The executive committee has arranged that we use
the August long weekend next year for our 2018 camporee.

Dates for the 2018 Camporee were agreed - August 3, 4, 5 and 6 , 2018
