The KCCU has come through ups and downs, almost threatened with liquidation in 1984. Since then it rebounded with vigour and, having benefited from the expertise of a number of professionals, emerged as a model in the region. The present manager is Brenetta Dublin who commands a staff of 17.
The present Board of Directors comprises Rueben John president, vice president David Telesford, treasurer Edmund Jackson, secretary Brenton Milligan with Directors Annis Horne, Euna Thompson and Brenan King.
Tomorrow’s meeting will hear reports from the various committees and elect officers to the several posts.
