The AGMs were held on Thursday, 24th November 2022 and the Management Committee of the Community Technology Centre and the Mangrove Mountain Computer Club for 2022-2023 comprises:
President: John O’Toole
Having first being elected President in 2013-2014, it is probably fair to say that once again it took a “little” persuasion to convince him to stand. John started at the Club at close to a novice level with computers, but quickly developed strong skills in photo and video editing.
Vice-President & Public Officer: Nick Mason
Nick Mason who has had a long association with the Club, commencing in 2002, including Chairmanship of the Steering Committee leading up to the successful funding of the CTC. He also chaired the Steering Committee that led to the formation Mangrove Mountain Computer Club. He was Secretary of the CTC/Mangrove Mountain Computer Club from October 2006 to October 2011.
Treasurer: Ron Collins
Ron emerged ‘out of the blue’ at the Meeting which led to the formation of a Management Committee but there are rumours that the late Ken West may have had something to do with this. After two years as both Secretary and Treasurer, and with the growth of the Club, Ron did not stand again for Secretary as well, but we are fortunate that he agreed to continue as Treasurer.
Secretary: Suzanne Grist
Sue Grist stood in for the previous Secretary, Nick Mason, in 2011 when Nick was having health problems and has continued to make a big contribution to the Club whilst juggling a number of other commitments. Sue carries a heavy load in organising and presenting a number of classes and we are indeed fortunate that Sue has agreed to continue as Secretary.
Ordinary Committee Members: Allan Alexander, Carolyn Farrell and Sam Nicholson
Allan Alexander continues to be strong supporter of the Club, having been Minutes Secretary previously, and was also closely involved in the RSL Project.
Carolyn Farrell has been a Club member for some years, and has made a major contribution in assisting with the digital scrapbooking and crafts.
Sam Nicholson has served as a soldier and continues to serve in the Army Reserve. His army training and interest in computers has stood him in good stead to become a much relied on tutor at the Club.
