Scottish Borders Manufacturers' Corporation
AGM - George and Abbotsford Hotel, 31st October 2008
The AGM was held in the George and Abbotsford Hotel on 31st October.
The minutes and accounts will be circulated in due course, but the main points, if my memory serves me were;
The confirmation of Sarah Mathieson of Vantage Events' appointment as Deacon for 2009, congratulations to her.
My nomination of Deacon Elect for 2010 was duly accepted -
Gordon Brown of GB Telecom is one of the Borders' rising young businessmen. A native of Galashiels a keen sportsman in his youth and strong supporter of many Borders charities, Gordon will bring his youth and energy to the post.
It was suggested that we required a sporting convener, and as Jerry Brett was not present, he was duly nominated and universally endorsed as Former Deacon i/c Sports.
The traditional toasts were first rate and well received, I would especially like to thank Former Deacon Pat Dorward for his toast to the Deacon.
