October 2015

GETBA’s AGM was held on the 22nd of September. The 2014/2015 Annual Report and audited Financial Statements were presented and adopted, as were the 2015/2016 Business Plan and Budget, and indicative budget for the 2016/2017 year. The GETBA Committee were re-elected, and I’d like to thank members of the Committee for their efforts in steering the Association over the past year.

I’m pleased to announce that we now have ten Association sponsors and it is only with their contribution that we are able to continue with all the services to members, including crime prevention initiatives, following the end of the Ministry of Justice grant, without increasing the targeted rate. Our sponsors are profiled here.

It is hard to believe we are back into daylight saving already, and into the last quarter of 2015 with Christmas just around the corner. Don’t forget to read the Spring issue of the GETBA magazine and check the website regularly for upcoming events and latest news, as well as useful resources for your business.
