Chairman's Report - 2016

I am pleased to present my Annual Report for the year ending 31 March 2016.

 

      1. Finances:

Your society continues in a sound financial position. This reflects the current level of fees, a Hutt City Council grant and the careful stewardship of your society by the Executive Committee.

 

Cash position at 31/3/2016 $ 64,375

Cash position at 31/3/2015 $ 61,095

 

The society's expenses were similar to the preceding year.

 

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2016 $ 24,768

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2015 $ 23,609

 

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, and no change in course fees is anticipated. We effected a small increase to course fees at the start of 2016 as the SeniorNet Federation no longer receives a Government grant, and their payment to us has reduced.

Support Ends for Older Versions of Internet Explorer

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR USERS OF MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER

Microsoft have advised that they will no longer support and update versions of Internet Explorer on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 10 earlier that Internet Explorer 11 from 12 January 2016. Internet Explorer 9 will continue to be supported on Windows Vista.

Microsoft are doing this because it is difficult to support such a range of browsers, and as part of their overall strategy to move users to Windows 10.

This means the frequent holes found in versions of this software prior to version 11 will not be fixed, and users of these earlier versions are at risk of drive by and other infections.

Transmission Gully

The Transmission Gully project is a Public-Private Partnership project to build a 27-km four-lane (two in each direction) motorway from MacKays to Linden (through Transmission Gully). There will be interchanges connecting the route to MacKays, State Highway 58, eastern Porirua and Kenepuru. The link to eastern Porirua will provide connecting roads to Whitby and Waitangirua. The Porirua City Council will be the authority responsible for those connecting roads.
