CCO Announcements SEPTEMBER 30, 2022

Summary: muCounterpoint’s AGM is this coming Monday. These Announcements deal with that meeting and start with our conductor’s message about what we will be rehearsing this Monday after the AGM finishes. First, however, an update. The CCO’s performance at the “People, Power and the Park” Festival in Allan Gardens last Sunday was canceled due to rain. Although the cancellation was very disappointing, the Board is pleased that the Festival’s organizers had invited the CCO to perform this year and have assured us we’ll be invited again next year. Thank you very much to all the members who volunteered for the Festival. The music would have been wonderful! Thank you to the musicians who volunteered to perform, and to be featured performers, and thank you to those who volunteered to staff the CCO’s community table to explain the CCO and its programmes to everyone who stopped by. 1.

Two Directors, Chairperson Bob Bentley and Treasurer Kevin Uchikata, have reached the maximum terms allowed (6 years!!!!) and are retiring from the Board, although, thankfully, both have agreed to continue as volunteers. In addition, to the vacancies their retirements create, there are two additional Director positions vacant.

An election will be held for each one, either by show of hands or by ballot if any member requests a ballot; the nominee must be elected by the majority of the members in attendance at the meeting.
