Chairman's Report

I am pleased to present my Annual Report for the year ending 31 March 2019, in this 20th anniversary year of SeniorNet Hutt City.

Finances:

Your society financial position at years end is as follows:

 

Cash position at 31/3/2019 $ 52,809

Cash position at 31/3/2018 $ 59,486

 

Expenditure for the year was:

 

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2019 $ 25,616

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2018 $ 32,018

 

Funds on hand are adequate to meet our ongoing requirements, and are also sufficient to provide a buffer in the event of unexpected expenses.

 

There is no change sought to the rate of the annual membership fee. We have made some small changes to course and workshop fees.

 

The past year has been challenging financially, with increase rental costs and decreased member subscriptions. The cost saving measures adopted last year in relation to telecommunications and electricity have helped, but we have still registered a fall in funds of $6,677 representing costs in excess of income.

 

Our applications for grants from the Hutt City Council to assist with our operations were unsuccessful.

Obituary - JEXI KEOWN

It is with great sadness and a real sense of loss that we learned that Jexi Keown passed away on Saturday afternoon, 28th January 2018.

Jexi became a member of SeniorNet Hutt City in February, 2004. Over the years she has attended or assisted with tutoring in most classes, often at short notice.

Jexi served on the committee from 2011 to 2017 and fulfilled the post of Student Coordinator with distinction. She was a very warm and a very real people person with a bubbly personality, a very friendly demeanour, always ready to welcome people, reassure them and put them at ease, always willing to help with whatever and in whatever way she could. She was a very dedicated and loyal member of SeniorNet, believing completely in our goals and mission.

Jexi will be sadly missed by committee, tutors and members but our lives are so much richer for having known her and sharing in so many things with her.
