The committee of CBC has resolved to channel the income from fines paid by members at luncheons into a fund for the payment of grants to selected business people to enable them to improve their business or occupational performance through gaining business education, training or coaching. The committee feels that, as we are a business club, this course of action is more relevant for our club and our members than the charitable donations that have been made in the past.
The purpose of the grants is to enable recipients to improve their business or occupational performance through gaining business education, training, or coaching.
It is intended to make 3 grants of up to $1,000 in 2015, and one grant of $1,000 each year thereafter. Should the fund exceed or be in deficit of $1,000 in any year the committee will make adjustments accordingly. The recipients of the grants will be determined by the CBC committee on the recommendation of a sub-committee established for that purpose.
Notice of invitation to apply for a grant will be notified to all members of CBC annually. CBC members will be encouraged to invite any suitable business person to apply. Applications are not age restricted. In order to avoid any hint of cronyism, Club members are not eligible to apply, however successful applicants will be encouraged to become members of our Club on completion of the training/coaching for which the grant is made. Applications must be made in writing to the secretary of CBC when applications are called for.
