New Committee and Focus for CAA

Dear CAA community,

We had an intimate but constructive meeting at iKhaya Lodge last night (30 Oct 2014).

This is the new committee:

Richard Fidler (Chairperson)
Theo Naicker (Secretary)
Cheryl Hill (Treasurer)
Dianne Garven
Luke Velethongweni Luies (Librarian)
Emmanuelle Brown

At this stage we can share with you the following important resolutions:

  •  we will for the foreseeable future return to using iKhaya Lodge as the venue for our monthly talks, and we commit to making sure there is always a speaker
  • we will have a schedule of the speakers for the first 6 months of 2015 within a few weeks
  • the library system will be improved: a catologue of the library books will be accessible on the CAA website, and we will establish convenient drop off points in key locations where books can be returned
  • any members who paid membership fees in the past year will have their membership term extended to compensate for the months of inactivity of the CAA
  • committee members need to be paid up members (this was not previously the case)

Other plans and changes have been discussed to expand the membership base of the CAA, and to improve its service to the local astrological community, but the above is a summary of the most important points that will receive the immediate attention of the committee.

Thank you everyone for your input and encouragement. Please support this refreshed focus by becoming a paid up member and attending the exciting talks and events we will be organizing. Use the library and help us expand it. Participate.

We look forward to co-creating with you a stellar 2015 for the Cape Astrology Association.

Special CAA Meeting to Elect Committee: 30 October 2014, iKhaya Lodge, 6:30 for 7pm

Dear CAA members and community,

As many of you are aware there has been something of a lull in the CAA for some time, partly due to difficulty finding a suitable venue. It has been decided to refocus the efforts of the CAA through this meeting where we will elect new committee members and chart the way forward.

Please join us at iKhaya Lodge if you would like to contribute to the process in some way.

Warmest Regards,

The CAA Committee
