Note from KC President: The first portion of the April meeting agenda will be devoted to the March National Council meeting and the outcome of discussions there. It has been some time since we have spent any time or energy considering our role as part of the National Society. Why is that? What can we do to make ourselves feel less isolated from the mother ship? What do we want from National or our Centre? Why do you remain a member of RASC? Together we will tackle these ideas and our hopes for the future of the Centre. Please bring your questions and criticisms along to the meeting. I want to be a responsive president but I need feedback. I will note your comments and get them into Regulus for the wider membership. If you cannot attend but would like to make a comment send it to me and I will read it at the meeting, presenting in your name.
After the break we will concentrate on member presentations whatever they may be. Please limit yourself to 15 minutes, and send your name and topic along to me ASAP. One slot is already filled! I look forward to a large crowd!
