A Chairman's Welcome

30 March 2017

 

 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the British Business Club Düsseldorf (BBCD) website to all of our members, friends and visitors.

 

My apologies for the long period in which the BBCD website has either been down or not up-to-date. This was due to a variety of problems, which have taken some time to resolve. We will update members at the AGM about these issues.

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to remind all our members that our AGM is coming up on Tuesday 25 April at 18.00 at the Industrie Club in Düsseldorf. I urge you all to attend. We need a quorum in order to proceed with the club business and with the election of next year’s committee. As always there will be free drinks and food.

 

I am standing down as BBCD chairman at the AGM, as they say in Germany “with one laughing eye and one crying eye”. I have so many other commitments that it would be too difficult for me to continue in this role and to do it justice. I would like to thank the current BBCD committee, Paul Stheeman (co-opted treasurer), Tam (vice-chairman), Vincent McCue (secretary), Clodagh Durkin (marketing and social secretary)  and Monique-Alexandra Kerslake (co-opted member), for all of their hard work and support over the last twelve months and I will have more to say about this at the AGM.

 

If any of the current club members would like to stand for any of the electable committee positions, they can either contact me or Ian Mackenzie, the returning officer. They must be in possession of a current British passport to stand for one of these offices, in compliance with our current club statues. However, we also welcome expressions of interest from non-British-passport holders for positions as co-opted committee members. We are always short of volunteers and welcome any outside help to help us with our work.  We already have one nomination for a successor to me as chairman, who is a former committee member.

 

We will be hosting a special event later this year to thank all of our club sponsors. They have been very understanding through the period of difficulties we have had with the website. More details will follow shortly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kind regards

 

Andrew Gardiner

Hon. Chairman BBCD
