. . . FROM THE PRESIDENT
1The Scribbler – March 2013 Edition
y term of two (2) yearsas President will end inApril 2013; it has beenan honor and privilege to haveserved our Association oncemore. I thank you all for the con-fidence you have entrusted to meand the continued support youhave afforded to our Association.It is my pleasure to extend warmest greetings to all membersof our Chapter on behalf of the Executive Committee.We are already in spring 2013 and in the 22nd year of thefounding of our Chapter. Last October we hosted the ICQCAnnual Business Meeting (ABM) which was well attendedby alumni from the Guyana, New York, South and CentralFlorida Chapters and we look forward to this year’s ABM inLondon to mark the UK Chapters 25th Anniversary.I took up the challenge in 2011 to serve once again asPresident of our Chapter, and as one of the original membersI am proud of our achievements over the past 21 years. OurChapter continues to meet the two objectives it set itself in1991, by working towards maintaining the school’s tradi-tional high standards of excellence and by fostering a spiritof camaraderie among QC Alumni residing in Canada.We have achieved a great deal over the past 21 years andthis would not have been possible without the commitmentand hard work of those dedicated and loyal members of ourChapter. However, I cannot emphasize enough that ourchapter will no longer exist in 7 to 10 years if we are unableto sustain vibrant organizations. We cannot afford to becomplacent. Like other associations, we are in need of morealumni, particularly the younger ones, if we are to satisfyour
raison d’etre.
We have embarked on a focus group withour Last Lap Lime partners to find ways to encourage ourexisting members to participate more in our activities, andalso to get the younger alumni to join us.We have completed the upgrading of the QC library witha computer network system, have just completed contractu-al arrangements for technical support, and are in the processof registering the 800-odd students to make it fully opera-tional. We are still searching for a project manager inGuyana to start and provide local supervision for the projectto install an Intercom System at the school although we havehad some of the equipment and accessories for the past year.We continue to hold and participate in several annuallocal fundraising and non-fundraising activities with whichmany of you are familiar with and support - our 12th NightDance in collaboration with Toronto BHSAA; our Father’sDay Brunch; our Casino trip; our participation in Last LapLime with our four Alumni Association partners; and ourannual awards of 4 Lynnette Dolphin Memorial bursariesvalued $4,000 CAN. We have awarded a total of 19 bur-saries since the spring of 1999. Last year the recipients of 5of these bursaries were honored at our July 15th AwardsCeremony along with 13 alumni and supporters in recogni-tion of their contributions to the work of our Association.For the remainder of 2013, we have planned the follow-ing activities on the basis of being more communityinvolved:
Membership Drive:
to continue to encourage our inactivealumni to come out and participate in your Association, weask that you spread the word to our alumni, both old andyoung, and invite them to our Annual General Meeting to beheld on Sunday, April 28, 2013. As indicated before, wehave started a focus group to look in to ways of getting newmembers. Please bring one alumnus that you know to themeeting. We need you to get involved in your Association.
Charitable Status:
We are in the process of registering aCharitable organization. This was approved by ourExecutive Committee. In this way we can raise more fundsand give tax receipts to our donors, and we do hope we willbecome your favorite charity. We hope to complete this by June 2013
Health Seminars
: There are two seminars planned, aDiabetes Seminar in May and a Heart Health Seminar inOctober. Our plan is to take the lead in creating a culture of health so we can achieve more and enjoy life more by hold-ing a series of health seminars for the Guyanese andCaribbean diaspora with the involvement of other alumniassociations. Alumnus Dr. Vivian Rambihar will be the leadon these seminars.
E-mail Money Transfer:
We are in the process of complet-ing arrangements with our Bank to accept e-mail moneytransfers which will make it easier for our alumni to paytheir membership fees and buy tickets for our future events. You will be able to send your money directly from yourbank account to the QCAA (Toronto) bank account.Again I thank you for your continued support for the past2 years, but I must warn that our viability and survival willbe threatened unless we all work together to get more andyounger alumni involved in the activities of our Association.
