We were delighted to welcome 50 members to the Election of Officers meeting on 30th April. Thank you to the Birch Hotel for hosting the event.
Maureen Scholefield gave an update on the achievements of HHDBA in the last year. She said that her vision for HHDBA was to GROW.
That is to
- Grow the members
- Grow members’ businesses
- Grow the business we do with other members
She announced the start of a Grow Think Tank and even produced a Grow Bag to make the point! A number of members have agreed to take part in this think tank – a date will be set for June. Please let Sue know if you are interested in participating.
Mike Oliver gave an update on the Bike Ride – a summary is available here.
We were sad to say goodbye to Ruth de Mierre, Lyndsey Ratcliffe and Rene Moolenaar from the Committee. Maureen thanked them for all their hard work and a bottle of Ridgeview was given as a personal thank you to Ruth, Lyndsey and Rene. The good news is that Ruth and Lyndsey will still work in the Communicate and Develop working groups. The full list of officers and committee members is available here.
So watch this space – we will report on our plans for 2013 – 14 soon!
