The next one would hopefully be held around May 2008 but the actual date would be decided by the incoming committee. 7.2 My Fair Lady DVDs The Chairman noted that some members had identified a problem playing the DVD on certain types of player. He asked anyone who had encountered this problem to notify Vanessa Lee before 30 September 2007 and a replacement would be provided. After 30 September 2007 it would be assumed that all copies sold were working correctly. 7.3 Membership Jeremy Barr said that he only received information from the Singers if he had performed in a show. He suggested that members should be reminded when their memberships expired, and invited to rejoin or renew. The Chairman replied that there was a list of over 4,000 present and past members, and if any of them were not receiving e-mails it was possible that they had not informed the committee of new contact details. Information on Singers activities could also be found on the website, www.hksingers.com. Volunteer committee members were constantly striving to find new members and organise activities for existing members but this took up a lot of their time. He suggested that anyone interested in helping should volunteer. Karine Zanini said she had heard nothing about this year’s Christmas Carol concerts and would be willing to help organise them. Joo Lee Latter suggested using these concerts to raise funds for Operation Santa Claus, and said she would be happy to work with Karine on the charity side. 7.4 The Full Monty Arvin Robles, the Director, briefed the members on the progress of the show to date. There being no further business, the Chairman declared the meeting closed at 8.35 pm.
