Active Retirees : Active Retirees Dec-Jan 2012
Active RetireesTM | 7 VIEW FROM THE CHAIR Studio Commercial You will have noticed that PCSP has had a name change to Probus South Pacifc Limited (PSP); what you may not know yet is that it is part of broader changes to Probus governance in the South Pacifc. Since beginning as the Probus Information Centre, PSP has administered Probus affairs under the guidance of Rotary for 30 years. Probus Centre – South Pacifc Inc. was established in 1981, by authority of the Rotary District Gover nors of the time and, on advice from our auditors, solicitors and the Rotary District Governors, moved to become a Company Limited by Guarantee in May 2011. PSP has now completed the process of registering with Australian Securities and Investments Commission. Being a Company Limited by Guarantee provides a safeguard to the organisation and makes the Directors more accountable; the Company has no shareholders and there are no dividends paid. All Directors are Probus members acting in a voluntary capacity under good governance practices, implementing strategic and fnancial planning, and adhering to the values, purpose and vision of Probus. Rendezvous 2011 Having just returned from Barossa Probus Rendezvous I can report on its success. Much festivity and fellowship were enjoyed by 536 delegates from around Australia, 27 from New Zealand, one from the Philippines and three from the United Kingdom. PSP recognised the efforts of the 1991 Barossa Probus Rendezvous Committee in hosting the event 20 years ago with 1400 delegates. Service to Probus certifcates were presented to the 1991 committee: Chairman Harry Drury, Vice Chair man Don Evans and Treasurer Neville Butler (Tea Tree Gully Men’s), Secretary Lilian James and Dorothy Pryce (Modbury Ladies), Clive Le Page (Barossa Men’s) and Zeta Brown (Renmark Ladies). Our appreciation is extended to 2011 committee members and Chairman John Henderson, and the volunteers from fve local clubs. Congratulations on a great event! I can also now for mally announce that the 2013 Probus Rendezvous will be hosted by Albury-Wodonga. Awards and thanks A special moment was shared when PSP Directors and Rotary presented our General Manager Pat Atkinson with a Paul Harris Fellowship in recognition of her service, dedication and commitment to Probus. Pat accepted the award with much delight and called on her now fellow Paul Harris Fellows to stand and be recognised by acclamation. Keep fying the Probus fag and introduce Probus to friends, family and neighbours. Ken Brand PSP Ltd Chairman Read more about the Probus Barossa Rendezvous 2011 on page 8. A change in governance is safeguarding the future of Probus in the South Pacific. In safe company TRAVEL INSURANCE PSP Optional Travel Insurance provides excellent cover at an affordable price.
