It’s great to have the opportunity to write to you in the Meridian for my third time.
I can say that in our first 4 months of serving in the current EXCOM considerable work has been undertaken by EXCOM, the Committees, Taskforces and indeed Trustee/IMC’s so my thanks go to all of their volunteer efforts.
Executive Director’s Message
Dear ICMCI Members and Meridian Readers,
You must have all read the announcement pertaining to the vote on the Johannesburg congress resolutions. This was well received as it made clearer to me the steps and tasks I should follow and perform during the coming period.
Your involvement and the involvement of the committees and their chairs in the implementation is a key factor towards us all achieving the results satisfactorily.
As Treasurer of ICMCI, this has been a busy period. With the move of our Secretariat from the UK to the Netherlands, we have had to re-establish our financial reporting. I am pleased to report that this is well under way, and regular financial reporting will be established by the time to read this.
Your new Finance Committee has been hard at work. We meet at least monthly, and work continues between meetings. We have two main duties. The first is to act as stewards of ICMCI funds, to be sure it is collected, properly used, and the results reported.
