As you may be aware, the CBYA introduced a robust accounting system last year in order to help better manage our subscriptions and finances as membership continues to grow each year. We now have around 300 members!
As a result, people can now join the club at any time of the year, and pay their next year’s subscription on the anniversary date of their joining. Whereas, in the past, our membership year ran from January to December.
During 2017 our supported charities for the year, Make-A-Smile, Guardian Angels, ISVH Bomberos and APASA have all received support due to the generosity of CBYA members.
This year’s Charity nominations will be presented at the AGM on Monday 05 March 2018 and will be voted on to decide the charity(ies) being supported during the club year 2018.
The club has provided tremendous support for various charities in the past, and it is up to you, our members, to help decide on the charity(ies) which will benefit from our efforts.
To make a nomination, please send the name of the charity and a short statement of the reasons supporting your nomination to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to receiving your nominations.
