Oh, what a night!!! We packed it in to the Fairfield by Marriott last Thursday and Jennifer Schadt pulled off such an amazing transformation, I don't think Michael Willemson (GM) recognized it himself! Great prizes, great food (Chef Greg from Sans Souci) and a really, great vibe.
For my most formal note in today's message, the updated bylaws were passed unanimously by those in attendance on Friday for the Meeting of Members. They have now been sent to the Minister for review. We continue to operate under the current bylaws, which means the Board will go ahead with naming new board members in early December. We anticipate the new bylaws will be confirmed by February. That will mean another nomination period will open in March.
Next week, we have our last breakfast of 2023... where did this year go? Our QBAA Showcase breakfast brings together winners and nominees for this year's awards and it's a very interesting mix of service and entrepreneurial spirit I'm sure will offer inspiration.
We've got one more mingle before the year is out - don't forget to register for our Jingle Mingle coming up on December 13 at The Local! At very least, save the date and think about staying for dinner... if you're looking for other festive events, Chilangos is offering Office Party reservations through the season and one of our newest members, Base 31 is hosting a Gala event on December 1st - details below! The Other Side Media Group with Jeremy and Josh Davis are also inviting you to join them to their Christmas Celebration hosted at Sans Souci on December 7th.
