Thank you to all who came out for our AGM

Legacy would like to thank all our members who were able to attend our 2015 Annual General Meeting on Sunday, May 31. 

Legacy board would like to thank Jamie Brown Poole and Josh Crittenden for their dedication and service as Directors the past two terms.  Unfortunately, due to distance and work schedules, both Jamie and Josh have stepped down from their board positions.  They will continue as society members and help out in any capacity they can.  Thank you again for your support and hard work. 

We created two new positions.  First is a Director of Communications.  This person will be responsible for getting info out to our membership on a more frequent basis regarding updates, events, fundraisers, etc.  Second is a Director of Operations.  This person will be responsible for training members with our equipment and organizing search operations for Legacy. 

The following board members were nominated and voted in for the next term:

President - Scott Lebus
Vice President - Jim Ward
Treasurer - Barry Wilson
Secretary - Jeanne Hansen
Director of Communications - Anna Ward
Director of Operations - Sean Campbell
Director at Large - Connie Wilson

We still need to fill the position of Director of Fundraising.  This person will be responsible for organizing events, scheduling from our list of volunteers for events, discovering new fundraising ideas we're currently not using, etc.  This position is an important one and has a lot of support from our board members, society members and volunteers already in place.  Please email Anna at communications@legacywatersearch.com if you are interested in helping us with this position.

If you are not yet a member of Legacy and would like to be, please contact Jeanne at admin@legacywatersearch.com for information and application.

Thank you again for all your support!

Letter from the President

Dear Legacy Members and Supporters,

Over the last year, there have been many changes within our Society.  We have continued to build behind the scenes with fundraising efforts, equipment upgrades and training, and we have conducted 3 operational deployments.

Based on feedback from our members, we recognize we need to focus on communicating with our members/supporters about changes and the general business happening within the board and society.  To that end, we have created a new board position to fill that role.  Anna Ward, a current board member, has offered to take on the new role of Director of Communications.  She will be responsible for ensuring continuous and concise communication to all members and supporters regarding board updates, fundraising efforts, training events and operational deployments.  This will help serve the purpose of keeping all of you better informed.

The Legacy Memorial Golf Tournament, our biggest fundraising event of the year. is in full swing.  We are approximately 2/3 sold out with only three hole sponsorships remaining, to date.  There are still a few sponsorship opportunities available, but hole sponsorship seem to be very popular this year. If your company or someone you know wishes to be a sponsor at the tournament, please have them connect with Jeanne Hansen at admin@legacywatersearch.comSilent Auction & Raffle Prize donations – there is still time to donate your prize, email us or call Jen 604-828-8528 to make arrangements to pick up or drop off before May 27th. 

The Annual General Meeting will be held the following day, Sunday May 31 at 11AM at the Sportsplex meeting room (20165 91A Ave., Langley – map https://goo.gl/maps/DBWMM).  A light lunch will be provided.  We are actively searching for members to either serve as a board member or on one of our many committees.  More information will be contained in the official notice of the AGM coming out soon.  If you are not a member of Legacy yet but would like to be notified, please email Jeanne at admin@legacywatersearch.com ASAP.  It’s important to become a member to keep informed, volunteer and to retain the numbers to keep the society viable in support of our BC Gaming Grant application for funding.  I look forward to seeing everyone at the AGM. 

We have scheduled our first training event of the spring for June 9th, 2015.  This will be held in our new training facility located at Huyck Industrials Ltd. – Building C, Unit #101, 19505 – 56th Avenue, Surrey, BC (map - https://goo.gl/maps/0PfQS).  The topic for the first training night will be Side Scan Sonar set up, search techniques and image recognition.  This will be a short lecture based training session, and then you will be hands on with the sonar gear, setting up and learning to work with the program software.

Thank you for your support of the society

Scott Lebus, President
