CIPS London Annual General Meeting 2009 Summary

I just want to write about tonight’s London CIPS event and Annual General Meeting.  The event took place at the InfoTech head office here in London, Ontario and began with Pizza and Pop followed by a presentation by David Canton on Website Legal Issues.  The CIPS Annual General Meeting followed, and among other things we nominated new board members followed by voting and announcing of the officers.  I’m pleased to announce my new position on the executive as Treasurer.  I’ll be taking over the role from Jonathan Korchuk who has been serving in that role for the last several years. 

I’m looking forward to my new responsibilities as Treasurer, and it fits nicely within the scope of my long term objectives.  Along with being a contributor and providing input at the executive meetings, as Treasurer, I will be responsible for the following:

“The Treasurer is the custodian of all the official property and records of the Section, and will deposit all the funds of the Section in a financial institution as approved by the Board. He will collect all monies, keep complete accounts, and arrange for payment of all approved indebtedness of the Section and keep proper vouchers for such payments. The Treasurer will issue, as required, notices to members whose annual dues are in arrears, and will submit an annual financial report, and any other financial reports as required by the Board. In addition, the Treasurer will submit an annual audited financial statement to the Board and to the National Office within six months following the Section’s Annual General Meeting.”

We have a total of four new CIPS Executive members tonight!  I believe we have a very strong executive team and I’m looking forward to a great year on the Executive.

Tim Hodges received a great appreciation at the event tonight for his work as CIPS London President for the last several years.  He’ll continue in this role again for this Executive year.  A job well done!

We’ll soon be updating the CIPS London website to reflect this new team which reminds me that I have to send in a short description/bio along with a picture to our webmasters so they can update the site.
