REPORTING · 28th May 2015

Kitimat Understanding the Environment held its Annual General Meeting at the Rod and Gun Club on Tuesday, May 26th. The room was full of members of the organization. Barb Hall, now the Past President of K.U.T.E. Chaired the meeting.

When the call went up for nominations, the meeting became a round table where everyone described what they could offer the organization. Peter King was named the new president of K.U.T.E. by Acclimation (although he demanded a recount).

By the end of the evening, nine people had stepped forward to be board members of K.U.T.E. The main roles were filled with King as President, Michelle Martins as Vice President, Elizabeth Cloakey in the position of Treasurer and David Brown as Secretary, the organization can continue. Brian Andrew, Nichole Goffinet, Gary Haupt, David Sivyer and Melissa Thomas were named directors at Large.

The number of new director is good for the depot because many hands means less work.

The people at the meeting were walked through K.U.T.E.’s Finances, Expenses and the future of the Recycling Depot. The first order of business which the new board needs to face is the re-negotiation of the Union Contract. In December, they will have to negotiate the new lease for the depot.

A huge thank you to the outgoing board, especially Ken and Barb who have worked so hard for so long.
Your commitment does not go unnoticed.
