  1. Fundraising/Scholarship Committee – report from Danny via email
  • Aaron Hoffman has been contacted as the recipient of 2K from CTS (he has not responded, but I know he’s away) – cheque ready to be mailed;
  • As of this morning, I have 17 nominations from across the province for the BCHF scholarship
  • I have confirmed internally with White Spot team, and we are comfortable hosting an event where we can give out the BCHF scholarships.
  • I have not yet contacted Alan Sacks, but in theory, we are good to go for 35 ppl luncheon, and WS will pick up the cost of F&B.
  • To make this work, ideally, we need the event to happen between November 14 – December 8, or else is gets too busy with holidays..
  • I will make the short list of finalists, send a note to all the instructors thanking them for their nominations, and be prepared to announce the winners (internally) to BCHF and CTS by end of this week.
  • Maybe we could discuss the luncheon event over the phone before I reach out to Alan?...
