Scouts SA Annual Report 2016

SCOUTS SA ANNUAL REPORT 2016 8 Penultimately, I thank the Branch Executive Committee for its support and collegiate approach to what has been one of the hardest years we have faced together. We are confident that the Branch will prosper in the coming year, and this team has worked many long hours into the night considering and planning Scouting’s strong future in South Australia. Lastly, I acknowledge and thank our President Graham Coates, our Chief Commissioner Harry Long, and our Vice President Paul Dickson APM for their outstanding leadership— these are persons of the highest quality and I am thankful every day to be working with them. There would not be a Not For Profit organisation in South Australia where these three gentlemen could not lead with great effectiveness. Dan Ryan Chief Executive Officer, Scouts SA We have been trialling new booking systems, developing new MyScout® features, introducing a new property management system as well as a membership ‘alumni’ (#SCOUTFRIENDS) for 2016. I can say with conviction that your ‘Branch’ has been working very hard for the future of Scouting in South Australia, and certainly, in the face of real financial challenge. I am also very proud of our Branch senior volunteer and staff teams for the amazing body of work achieved this year. I hope you are too. The President and our Chief have quite rightly thanked a range of important people to us, from the Governor of South Australia; His Excellency, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC and Mrs Le through to our Commercial Managers, our CFO and the Staff. I echo their heartfelt thanks, and also to our Patrons; The Honourable Kevin Scarce AC CSC RAN (Rtd) and Liz Scarce (two great South Australians who continue to support Scouting in SA), and MAJ GEN Neil Wilson AM RFD & Mr Robert Champion de Crespigny AC for their continued enthusiasm for Scouting.
