Some members mentioned an interest in joining the committee at the PD Day. Suggestions for events for the upcoming year will be solicited.
Collicutt Centre tour:
Kim N. will arrange for a tour of the center to be given by the project manager or architect on June 14th and explore the possibility of combining the tour with a social activity (refreshments, pool)
A motion was raised to present a small gift to members and spouses who attend every event hosted by the branch. The motion was defeated.
Consideration shall be given to having a toast to those people instead. Also, consideration shall be given to give away door prizes at the events (e.g. free admission to the following event).
