On Monday afternoon, June 1st, 2009, all 5 members of the Salmon Beach Executive met with representatives of the ACRD (Tom Gowan, Robert Sabine, Teri Fong, and Wendy Thomson) in Port Alberni to review their expectations and outline the responsibilities of the newly elected Executive.

Extensive review of existing bylaws, the current budget established by last years Executive, the proposed "Salmon Beach Area Manager/Security Agreement", as well as five letters from community members were the focus. The meeting lasted for 4.5 hours and was very informative and productive. The Executive wishes to thank the ACRD staff for taking time out of their busy schedules to meet with us. Unfortunately Tony Bennett (ACRD Director) was unable to attend, therefore this was not an official meeting as his attendance is required to make it so.

Also, a special thanks to Gina and Cindy for traveling from Vancouver specifically for this meeting.
