AGM holds subscription costs and elects Parent committee

Updated: minutes, financials and reports added

Brooklyn Scout Group held its AGM on Sunday evening, reporting on a fantastic year of activities and development across all the sections of the Group: Keas, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers.

Highlights of 2011 included:

  • Keas starting their new Badge and Awards program with a vengeance
  • Cubs number swelling, and enjoying a fantastic camp
  • Scouts cycling from the Rimutaka incline to Saywells, tramping around Lake Waikaremoana

Importantly, the AGM voted to hold subscription charges at 2009 levels – this recognises the challenging economic times, but also the fact that subscriptions only cover around 50% of our running costs.  The Group will continue to rely on fantastic fund-raising efforts, and the support of parents / caregivers.

Looking forward, the AGM attendees were keen to provide an increased level of support to the Leaders.  To this effect, it was resolved to setup a Parents Committee to work with the Leaders.  The initial Members of this Committee are:

  1. Chris Ewers (Cub Parent)
  2. Donald Clark (Cub Parent)
  3. Erina Papp (Scout Parent)
