OPENING

  • Meeting started at 4:10pm. Opening prayer was said by Apostle Antwi.
  • Scofray Nana Yaw Yeboah, the association’s president welcomed all members to the meeting.

MATTERS ARISING

Anniversary cloth

The President explained to the meeting the third time the reason why the price of the cloth was pegged at GH¢50.00 per yard. He said we did not meet the minimum required printing order which was 1,500. Secondly, it is a pre-order and we have to pay before they print.

As at the time of the meeting, not even 50% of members had made commitment to purchase the cloth.

Comments which came after the explanation suggested that most members are waiting for last minute or rush hour. The anniversary committee pointed out that in case anyone knows of someone who is prepared to pre-finance the cloth, we will be glad, but no response came.

Apostle said we are facing challenges due to constitutional deficiency. He added that as it stands now, any old student from the school becomes automatic member of the association which is wrong. He therefore, suggested we create a registration portal in our website for committed members to register.

Pius could not agree more with Apostle and added that the whole issue is about commitment to the association.

The meeting reiterated on the agreed terms as outlined below for the third time to which the first window expired in July:

  • The sale of the anniversary cloth is on pre-order basis
  • The anniversary cloth is priced at GH¢50.00 / yard
  • Minimum purchase is 2yards.
  • The design of the cloth will be reposted on the various platforms
  • Three uniform sowing designs will be presented in our next meeting to avoid unwarranted designs.
  • We only have 2 openings arrangements with the Printing House
  • May to end of June 2017 and July to end of August 2017.
  • THE MEETING AGREED THAT THERE WILL BE NO OPENING AGAIN BUT THE TWO.
  • The cloth will be worn on the day of the anniversary which is 2nd December, 2017, the anniversary T-shirt is for any other day.
  • All monies for the clothes should be sent to Mobile Money numbers
  • Capone 0244681391
  • The committee said they are looking at other alternative incase GTP is not able to print due to the pre-order arrangement and the delay in paying. This will be communicated to the association in due course.
  • All coordinators were advised to discuss the issue surrounding the pricing of the cloth to their members to avoid misinformation and denting the image of the executive and committee members on various platform to the extent someone said on one platform that we priced the cloth high to get something into our pockets which was unfortunate because either he was misinformed or conjecturing.
  • K. O. Boadu advised all leaders to take it cool because such pronouncements would come on our ways. He said we need to explain to members to understand and advised that all coordinators should be tolerant in their dealings with members.
  • It came to light that other old boys are using the logo of the school to print other paraphernalia’s which is against the principle on which printing of such items have been agreed. The meeting extended warning to those who are involved and advised they desist in that trade. All printing of articles for the association must pass through the executive for approval. All coordinators were advised to tell their members that the culprits will face the full rigors of the laws in Ghana on copyright.
50th Anniversary updates and program outline

The president took us through the program outlined for the occasion. However, there were some suggestions and inputs which the meeting agreed to add and therefore, we agreed to present the final program and post it on various platforms in the course of the week which is also going to capture budget for the entire program.
