AGM – Historic year for St Andrews Business Club

April 19, 2018

Retiring Club President Alistair Morris reported a record year.

In the Club’s 2018 AGM, outgoing President Alistair Morris reported Club membership was now at a record level of 103 members and still growing.

 

Event attendance levels this season have also set a new record for the Club, with five events still to take place before the season closes on June 27.

Speaking about the season, Alistair, said: “The last year has certainly been an exciting and progressive one for St Andrews Business Club. The 13 events to date have attracted dramatically increased attendance and resulted in Club membership breaking through the 100-member milestone for the first time.

“I look forward to next year and seeing the club go from strength to strength with the new Committee and under the strong leadership of Alan Morrison. Thank you to all members for their input and support.”

Alistair also thanked Secretary and Treasurer Ronnie Murphy, who is standing down from the Committee after many years’ service, for his dedicated service over many years and presented him with a gift.
