RCCM-S Club Administration has had a successful first half year due to the invaluable efforts of the eleven team members. The first half year culminated in a joyous Christmas Party on 20 December 2011 at the RACV club. The smooth operation of this meeting and of all breakfast meetings during the year has been due to the input from many club members as well as a positive relationship with our hosts, the RACV Club. The weekly speaker program has been excellent in terms of speaker quality and scheduling arrangements, and some new, as well as old, sergeants have kept spirits high with the sergeant’s financial progress running according to budget.

Four monthly duty rosters have been established (which include greeters) with duty notes available on the RCCM-S website. The RCCM-S website has had some front page design modifications and there has been an education session on accessing event registration areas. A Google Cloud drop box has been established for the scheduled photographers to deposit event photographs that can then be accessed for club-related publications and the Club Bulletin has been distributed electronically each week with unfailing regularity.

The social program has included a BBQ and tour of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Cranbourne, an exhibition tour at the National Art Gallery, and a Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner evening.

On to Conference promotion of the District Conference was successful with many members registered as early birds for the March 2012 event.

The three activities of membership, mentoring and recruitment have been clearly delineated and the requirements of each area given due recognition. The almoner responses have been handled with awareness and respect. Working With Children Checks registrations have been audited and encouragement and support given to those yet to register. More club banners have been ordered as well as speaker gifts of soap and notebooks from Timor Leste.
