Strata AGM

Further evidence of my inability to say “no.”
Last night was our building’s Strata AGM. You’ll recall that last year the Snook put up his hand to be on the Committee. He was going to do the same this year, but he caught a cold yesterday and didn’t feel up to going. So I went along without him and put his name forward as before. Then it came time to elect the officebearers, and the outgoing chairperson really wanted to hand over to somebody else. No one volunteered. I eventually called the Snook to see if he was willing, but he really didn’t want to do it. That’s when my neighbour Mark (the treasurer) said, “Why don’t you do it, Kris?” Oh balls. Sure, why not take on ANOTHER extracurricular activity?! So not only did I get put on the Committee in the Snook’s place, I got installed as the bloody chairperson. I’ve never done this before.

  1. Welcome to the club. In my view being Chair is much easier than being Secretary or Treasurer – you can delegate!

  2. Thats how it starts, next you’ll be running for a public office. Nawww probably not.

  3. Hah, welcome to my world. I’m the reluctant chairperson of my committee too 🙂

  4. Did you get a big whip and a certificate stating that you could call everyone else, “Ma Biaaatch!!” 🙂

  5. Shane?! You’ve been in the U.S. for months! 🙂

  6. Chairperson’s easy… it’s the Secretary that does all the work… I know this from experience…
