ANNOUNCEMENTS, REPORTS
President Bruce Jellard
President Bruce Jellard welcomed the members, guests and the guest speaker.

He briefed the members on topics discussed and decided at the Board meeting held before the luncheon:

  • The Board gave the go ahead for two projects related to HIV proposed by Ari Murti.
  • a) 18 months nutrition for babies whose mothers are HIV infected, approx. IDR 11 million for the first 6 months.

    b) 12 months health service support and emergency assistance,
    IDR 6 million for the first 6 months.

  • The Board approved the support of the Cintanak project proposed by Edward Naus with an amount of IDR 30 million to be used for a capital project.
    Also under consideration is the continual support of the project. Cintanak provides care for mentally and/or physically handicapped children.
  • The Board is considering the cooperation with ROLE in one or two projects.
    The Community Service Committee is to scrutinize the projects in its
    meeting on 12 May.
  • The President outlined the cash and dedicated fund position of the club.

To be able to dedicate the amount of time that the position of Club President requires he is of the opinion that future Presidents should preferably come from the ranks of those not having a full time employment. He also suggested the Club to consider the employment of a permanent secretary/administrator.

The President then asked the floor to present or raise points of common interest.
