The skies broke after a deluge of rain, and a warm breeze blew through lower Gibsons as we commenced our 2011 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday April 27th. Executive Board President Mike Clement started the night off by discussing the hard work of the board, staff members and volunteers in their various roles to ensure the successful operation of the SCMA. It was evident by Mike's passionate speech that 2011 will be a great year of evolution and innovative endeavors at the SCMA which will in turn solidify our role as a heritage leader on the Sunshine Coast.

Treasurer Lorraine Goddard then gave a brief run-down of our financial position followed by Jon Hird who presented a short documentary about behind the scenes exhibit development at the Museum.

Following the presentations, the Annual Election was held. Mike thanked the two outgoing board members and welcomed the three incoming members to the new 2011 SCMA board.
Mike ended the evening off with some closing comments and invited the audience to get involved in the life of the Museum, thus highlighting our 2011 vision: This is your Museum: Get Involved!
It was apparent in all of the presentations last night that this is going to be a defining year in the evolution of the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives. What do you want to see happen with your community museum?
