The National Trust for the Cayman
Islands is preparing for its annual general meeting, set to take place on
Wednesday, 22 September.
The annual report for the fiscal
year ended 30 June will be presented, as will the financial report for 2010.
Frank Balderamos, general manager of the National Trust, said it is very
important for members to make time to attend the meeting.
“The Trust does so much work, and
has so much more planned, that the only way for members to truly appreciate it
is to come and hear it first-hand,” he said.
The meeting will also serve as the
opportunity to elect new members of the council. Nominations for these
elections can be submitted up to 48 hours before the meeting.
A list of nominees to serve on the
council is available for viewing at the National Trust offices.
Mr Balderamos emphasised the
importance of members using the meeting to have their voices heard.
“Do you like what we’re doing? Then
come out and support the candidates for council so that they can continue their
work. Are you dissatisfied? Then come along and get to know the candidates so
that they can be aware of your feelings and you can know which ones share your
opinions,” he said.
The meeting will take place at
6.30pm in the building behind the National Trust offices at 558 South Church
Only members in good standing will
be allowed to vote at the meeting. Anyone uncertain of their present status can
contact Mr. Balderamos at 749-1122 at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.
