GwaiiTel to meet within a month

  • May. 14, 2014 4:00 p.m.

GwaiiTel has promised to hold its annual general meeting within the next month, said chair Carol Kulesha, and is using the extra time to make improvements.”The society was granted an extension for the AGM in order to have time to review our financial status and staffing changes,” she said.It contacted a competitive consulting contractor from Financial Logic to produce a research report through a program offered by Northern Development Initiative Trust.A financial report has been completed, said Ms Kulesha, and they are currently working on a technical review.”That is not yet completed,” she said, “though the board is acting on recommendations and has okayed the replacement and new equipment as we come to understand its need.”Bandwidth usage has increased by 57 percent between September and February when compared to the previous year, said Ms Kulesha.She said in the meantime, the board has been reviewing its operations for best practices, planning upgrade training for both internet service providers, advertising for accounting services and investigating ways to supply administrative services on islands.”The members and directors of GwaiiTel are volunteers, me as well,” she said, “GwaiiTel is very grateful to all its funders. This would not have happened without Industry Canada, RediBC, Northern Development Initiative Trust and Gwaii Trust.”
