Notice of motions


The Secretary, Mooring Manager and Treasurer donate a lot of their time and incur additional costs to contribute to the successful management of the association. Each year they are paid an honorarium to assist towards offsetting some of these expenses.

I, Garry Barker, being a financial member of Garden Island Fishing & Aquatic Association (Inc.) propose that the Secretary, Treasurer and Mooring Manager be paid an honorarium of $1,000 each to reimburse them for their out-of-pocket expenses for the 2022 / 23 year

Moved: Garry Barker (Committee Member) Seconded: Mark Maczkowiak (Committee Member)
