These past few months have been particularly busy for Membership. As you are probably aware, December and January are the months when most of you normally renew your membership and I thank you for your continued loyalty in being a member of our great Club. There has also been a lot of activity in the recruitment of new members to the BIWC. In December 2019 and January this year, we have a total of 14 new members so far, with more being processed as you read this letter. Applications have been received either following attendance at a Meet & Greet, perusal of our website or through talking with current members. I would like to ask you as members to continue to promote the Club so we can continue to increase our membership numbers.
I was also aware that you would like a new venue for our morning Meet and Greet get-together. Having researched several outlets, and on approval from the other EC members, we selected the Café LebensArt on Unter den Linden. A central location, a short walk from U-Bahn Brandenburger Tor, with various means of public transport available to all. I look forward to seeing you at our new location.
I am looking forward to another year as your Membership Secretary, should I be re-elected at the AGM in April. This position has given me the opportunity to give back something to the Club and I am enjoying all the work that this role entails and working with a nice team on the EC.
