Secretary/Manager report

Many of you are aware that I am the Secretary-Manager for the Society. It is my great pleasure to serve in this position.

I am listing the complete formal duties of the Secretary-Manager of the Society.

Duties of the Secretary (Society Manager)...

Yes, I am still here! After resigning as Secretary/Manager at the end of August 2010, I assumed that a replacement would be selected as soon as possible.

-        actual cash flow for 2010,

-        balance sheet for 2005 to 2010,

-        the Auditor’s report for 2010.
