Change Of Guard On Committee

Men of BootCo, there has recently been a change of guard on the BootCo. Committee.

Both Anthony Smith (President) and Cyll Duncan (Secretary) stepped down in early February due to personal commitments. We are sad to see them leave, and thank them for the countless hours of work that they invested to ensure our club grows from strength to strength.

Following a call out for interim Committee members in January, the BootCo. Committee are pleased to announce that Torren Adelle and Ari Frost have accepted Interim positions as regular committee members, and Kobi Cooke has stepped up into the role of Interim President.

Kobi brings a wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm, and organisational skills, having previously served for five years for the Community of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Kobi is currently in his 8th year on the Committee of Brisbane Pride Festival, and his 7th year on the Committee of BootCo. During his tenure, both organisations have gone through great progress.

The role of Interim Secretary has been taken up by Timothy Roberts (Queensland Leather Boy 2015). David Eisentraut (MQL 2015) and Gary Woodhouse still sit as Committee Members and Benjamin Bullivant continues in the role of Treasurer.

The interim appointments will serve on the committee and organise our events until the Club’s Annual General Meeting in May, (in approx. 6 weeks), where all Committee Positions will be available to anyone who wishes to apply. In a short while, nomination forms and proxy voting forms will be issued to financial members for the 2016-17 BootCo committee. If you wish to nominate for a committee position or vote at the AGM, please ensure you have paid your membership dues up until May – the committee are more than happy to check the records for you if required.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Club’s AGM in May.

Expressions Of Interest For Committee Positions

2015 has seen a number of changes to our Club’s Committee, including the resignation of several committee members due to career changes and moving away from Brisbane. In addition to this, our President and Secretary feel that after three years of serving our Leather Community in these roles, that it is time to tackle new challenges, and will not be seeking re-election.

BootCo is seeking expressions of interest for people to join the BootCo committee in the capacity of:

President,
Secretary and
Committee members

Our committee is a dynamic group of people who like to collaborate, think outside the box, and commit to supporting Queensland’s Leather Fraternity and the wider LBTIQ+ community. If you wish to nominate for any of the above positions, you we invite you to come to our next committee meeting on 9 February to get a feel for committee life. Please direct your expressions and any enquiries to president@bootco.org.au.

Expressions of interest will close Friday 19 February 2016.
