From the Chair
We are now able to book for Murat's and Sigrid’s workshops on TryBooking. Their PTC workshops will be on Saturday 17 March and Sunday 18 March in the daytime and Monday 19th March in the evening.
Here is the workshop link: https://www.trybooking.com/UHBI
And more information about their workshops can be found here
Don’t forget to start that weekend off with a wonderful Masquerade Gala Milonga on Friday night, 16 March ($20 for members, $25 for non-members).
You can book for the Milonga on: https://www.trybooking.com/UHBM
Remember, places are strictly limited for both events so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Members who would be prepared to spend some time and/or energy helping out are encouraged to contact Lidia by email email@example.com or speak to any committee member. We need more people than you might think to organise and run events like these and it is a real opportunity to ‘act, belong, commit’.
We are also in need of a cleaner on a weekly basis. This is a paid position and you can earn yourself $60 for two hours a week keeping our club sparkling clean.
I have a list of what is involved. I have done it myself, so it is not difficult. If you are interested, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will walk you through it. We have contracted this job out for a number of years and I would like to offer it to members first before going outside the club, if necessary.
We are attempting to streamline our operations in all areas but even so, members who are willing and able to take on essential tasks are increasingly thin on the ground.
Work and other commitments seem to fill our time and take our energy and many (all?) of us struggle to fit in yet another job. This is absolutely understood. If we are not to cut back on some of our events, one option is to hire a part time manager/administrator. This would necessitate an increase in fees and is just an option. At this stage no formal discussion has taken place but I’m flagging this to let you know that our plea for more helpers is real and urgent.
