their homes. We all would have liked to have visited Windsor
but it was not to be.

Explaining the reasons for the increase during the AGM was
of little use when, as we found out afterwards, most members
had already voted and made up their minds previously. The
resolution did not pass as we are required to achieve a twoWKLUGVWRRQHWKLUGPDMRULW\YRWH:HDFKLHYHGDSHUFHQW

Financial News
CPS-ECP is at a crossroads. We are a volunteer, membership-run organization that is
supported by two pillars - membership dues and course sales.
Obviously our membership dues revenue depends on the number of members and those have nearly halved since the last
increase in 2012. Course sales, which had been going down
before COVID-19, have now fallen off a cliff. Our 2020 audited
