Annual General Meeting September 24, 2016
Members of the Cochrane Music Society,
We’re happy to announce that we shall be holding our annual general meeting on September 24th at 3pm in the Bow Valley High School music room. Each year we hold an annual general meeting where we have a brief report on the state of the society and then elect members to the board of directors. This year’s AGM will be a short intermission during our Jumpstart start-of-year workshop. It’s one of the few occasions where band and choir members are able to get together as a group. Members of Riverside Jazz are strongly encouraged to come and join us during the AGM. We will provide coffee/juice and cookies and need your input.
For those new to our group, Jumpstart allows us to spend a few hours as a group, focusing on learning technique and repertoire that will serve us through the rest of the term. Jumpstart runs from 1pm to 5pm, with a break for beverages, a little snack, and a short AGM.
We are very lucky to have a healthy music society, and that because members, just like you, have offered-up their time to volunteer. This year, we have a number of vacancies on the board, and we’re looking for new members to help keep our organization running. We’re looking for 3-4 members from choir, 3-4 members from band and 2-3 members from jazz. If you have not participated on the board in recent years, I ask you to please offer to help out. We really need you!
Henry Bland, President
