After five years at the helm, John Dall’Amico has resigned as president and from the committee of Residents 3000.
Mr Dall’Amico announced his resignation at the group’s annual general meeting (AGM) at the Kelvin Club on September 6.
“I have chosen to move aside and allow others the opportunity to shape or stamp their personality, style and creativity on the association,” he said.
Vice-president Sue Saunders praised Mr Dall’Amico’s contribution in growing the group over many years.
She said there were only about eight people involved when John first joined the group about 10 years ago. In his president’s report to AGM, Mr Dall’Amico said average monthly forum events currently exceeded 50 participants.
Ms Saunders said the hallmark of Mr Dall’Amico’s presidency was his ability to delegate.
“This is important,” she said. “Because everyone on the committee just does a little bit.”
New officer bearers were elected at the executive committee’s next meeting.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp was guest speaker at the AGM and drew a crowd of about 65. She spoke about planning, homelessness and waste management.
On September 20, the executive of the group elected Rafael Camillo as president, Sue Saunders as vice-president, Merle Willis as secretary and Denise Reynolds as treasurer.
