Qualicum Beach Residents’ Association AGM set for Saturday

In addition to electing directors, members will hear a presentation from local architect and planner Andrew Brown

The Qualicum Beach Residents’ Association will continue its long tradition when it convenes its annual general meeting on Saturday. The association, which is incorporated as a non-profit society, will elect its board of directors and hear a presentation by local architect and planner, Andrew Brown, on “A Vision for Qualicum Beach”.

The residents association was formed in 1971 to encourage, promote and improve local conditions by advancing recommendations to what was then called the village council. Over the past 43 years, it has continued on this path, with a brief three-year interruption in the late eighties, due to low membership.

“Currently, our membership is approaching 300,” said vice-president Dave Golson. “We have experienced a resurgence of interest over the past three years and are expecting a spirited discussion by our members about their vision of our community at our AGM this year.”

The association sponsors an all candidates forum as an opportunity for local voters to question candidates for town council in municipal elections.

“We are proud of our membership, which includes many of the town’s hardest working community volunteers,” said Golson.

The QBRA AGM will take place at the Community Hall at 644 Memorial Avenue (next to the curling rink) on Saturday, Oct. 4. Registration will begin at 2 p.m. and the business meeting will commence at 2:30.
