• Asia Pacific Region Committee Meeting

    1 July 2014

    The Asia Pacific Region (APR) Annual General Meeting and First Committee Meeting of 2014/2015 Session was held in Macau on Saturday 17th May 2014 at the very impressive Venetian Macau Resort Hotel, Cotai. The meeting room was an equally impressive private room within Cafe Deco which is the venue for the regular monthly meetings for the members of the Lighthouse Club Macau – High Rollers indeed.

    The quorum of seven members received and approved the various officers’ reports, re-appointed the Auditors, considered other business and elected the new the Regional Committee for 2014/2015. The James Battersby Lighthouse Club Educational Trust and the Asia Pacific Region Benevolent Trust are both in reasonable surplus.

    The new office holders are:

    The Chairman : Willie Kay

    The Immediate Past Chairman : Steve Tennant

    Chairman Elect : Keith Buckley

    The Deputy Chairman : John Battersby

    The Secretary : John Arkinstall

    The Treasurer : Barry Adcock

    The Membership Secretary : Colin Johnston

    The nominations for the Representatives to the Regional Committee from the nine regional Clubs/Branches were accepted. Les Leslie is taking on a co-ordination role between UK- Middle East and APR Clubs/branches.

    The new Chairman’s focus is to better emphasise Health and Safety; to establish a Golden Helmet award in all of the nine regional Clubs/Branches and to raise the profile of Lighthouse Club within the region by closer collaboration with the large construction companies and government departments.

    A buffet lunch following the meeting was held nearby in the Four Seasons Hotel – Belcancau restaurant generously sponsored by Hsin Chong Engineering (Macau) Ltd. Keith Buckley and the Lighthouse Club Macau were deservedly thanked for their arrangements and hospitality in hosting the APR AGM and First Committee Meeting.
