Our PD Committee has worked very hard to bring you the 2019 EAA PD Event.
I just wanted to explain a few things about the PD Event being held on April 12, 2019. This year Bingemans was booked and after many calls to many venues St Gerorges Hall was the only venue available to hold our large group. Unfortunately, the only way to hold all of us is with row seating. I know many of you are disappointed with row seating, as are we. We are going to see how it goes this year. Bingemans is also not available in 2020 so if row seating does not go well we may look at having multiple venues for the day in the future.
As for no longer supplying coffee and tea. The cost of this is $2000. In order, to be more fiscally responsible we no longer felt this was good use of union dues as not every Member drinks this. Water will be available. Instead, we will be using some of that money towards a Police officer to direct traffic to make it easier for members to leave this event on a busy Friday afternoon.
On behalf of the PD Committee I hope you understand. We are always welcome to hear your ideas and our Committee is looking for new Members for next year event.
