Blueskin Media holds longest-ever AGM

by Craig Marshall

Th annual general meeting of Blueskin Media was held on May 9 at Gallery
on Blueskin, Waitati, and was well supported by our readers and
existing and prospective volunteers.

Louise Booth relinquished the president's position and Peter Dowden
was elected in her place.

Therése Hailes and Lawrence Hay were elected to share the position
of secretary, while Colleen Hastie was elected to the treasurer
position in absentia,
subject to her acceptance.

A committee comprising Louise Burnside, Lynnaire Johnston, Louise Booth, Craig
Marshall and Nicky Clarke was elected.

Outgoing treasurer Polly Higham was presented with a small gift in
appreciation of all her work over the years. Polly is the longest
serving member of Blueskin Media and was instrumental in dealing with
a serious financial squeeze some years ago. The very satisfactory
current financial state of the organisation is in no small measure due
to her efforts.

The meeting resolved that Geraldine Tait and Alasdair Morrison
investigate the possibility of Blueskin Media becoming an incorporated
society or charitable trust.

It was decided to investigate producing another phone directory which
would include addresses in Blueskin Bay, Warrington, Evansdale, and
Seacliff and to investigate collecting together recipes from 'The
Blueskin Bayleaf' and produce these in some form.

It was decided that a donation of $104 ($2 per week for a year) would
be made to Blueskin Bay FM.

The meeting closed at 8:45 pm which, at 75 minutes, broke the record
as Blueskin Media's
longest-ever meeting.
