PRESIDENTS REPORT- BONGO
We’ve had a few rides since we last met. Acknowledged the logistical difficulties many members have in attending various club activities. A reminder that we are whanau and some members maybe experiencing life challenges during these uncertain times. A reminder to check in on each other, supporting and showing aroha to all. I’m considering stepping down at some stage, I have other parts of my life that I would like to give more attention to. But hopefully as the club grows, someone will step up and take on the role of president. I’m happy to stay on for the time being but would like to see more younger members join and step up. Confirmation of the trademark registration has been received by email. There has been informal discussion with other clubs about creating a multi club event modelled on The Bert Monroe.

DAVE – suggested we look at the possibility of a 3 day ride around Coromandel. Possibly in April. Would need to be during the first two weeks to avoid conflict of school holidays and Easter.
JAX- we need to consider succession planning. As the club grows we need to plan more around the future of the club. For discussion at the next meeting and the AGM.
New Members. what has happened to the procedures for voting in new members. This appears to have been circumvented recently. There are new member who have been accepted that Jax has never seen. Happy for new member to join the club but if we have rules we need to stick to them. To allow for clarity and transparency. Jax is also concerned that decisions are made that are not put to the general club. That any decisions should be presented to the club at the quarterly meetings. Failure to open communication can lead to fractions being created within the club which is not what anyone wants. If rules are not working the club can revisit and adjust if required.
BRENT- Suggested a two step new membership structure.
1/ A 3 month probationary/pending stage. Where the new member attends ?? functions.
2/ a vote at the next quarterly meeting by all financial members be held to decide if the applicant should be accepted.
General discussion resulted in Teeps and Chrissie being asked to look at the new membership rules and to review and present to the club at the next meeting.
NEW MEMBER APPLICATION FOR VOTING
Brent – nominated Dave seconded Anna PASSED
Becks – nominated Irlene seconded Anna PASSED

Welcome to the club.
LEEANN - Enchanter Charters will donate one seat on a 5 day Three Kings charter again this year for the PRR.
CHRISSIE- As the club profile increases we need to operate within any legal requirements. Therefore a license from DIA will need to be applied for the raffle.
BONGO – His cousin has taken over the role of CEO of REAP. a NGO that provides support to the community through various local organisations. He is interested in the possibility of creating a relationship with our club.
GORDON- Always promoting our club to customers at work. A common comment from non club affiliated riders is the speed of club riders including our own club. General conversation about perception and generalisation.
