November 24th Tasting Agenda (Note New Date!)

At 7:00 pm on Monday, November 24 and immediately prior to our tasting will be our annual business meeting. The agenda will include:

  1. Approval of our dues for 2015.  The Executive Committee has recommended that dues be increased from $190 to $200 for 2015 in order to maintain the quality of our tastings as Scotch prices have increased.

2014 Dues payment deadline would be 31 December. (Bring your cheque to the November tasting and you won’t have to remember!)

We have a waiting list of potential members, and any dues not paid by Dec. 31st may open that reserved membership in the Society to a new member.

  1. Election of officers for 2015. The officers include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Quartermaster. We do have a slate of officers to present for election. However, I would encourage you to run or nominate anyone for any of these positions. Please email Harvey Silverstein directly at hsilverstein@gmail.com  with your nomination prior to our Nov. 24 tasting and annual meeting.
