New Sub-committees formed
After the first function for members in more than 7 years, and the hectic efforts to complete the repair work before the Thanksgiving Mass, the momentum towards getting the KCA out of its hibernation gathered pace.  The Social & Charitable sub-committee and the Sports sub-committee were constituted & met for the first time.  Planning began for re-starting the Housie sessions for members, with stronger checks & balances than earlier.  

Building organizational capacity
Strengthening internal processes & building organizational capacity to handle the increase in activity, were given a priority.  A new senior manager, with more than 20 years experience in the banking sector (Citizen Bank, IndusInd Bank, HSBC) was recruited alongwith another junior executive to handle Hall management & administration.  

The computerization & updation of the member database was given a fillip with the recruitment of a Member Relations executive, who even went to visit some of the members at their homes.  When the new council took over there were no computerised membership records available, with our only reference point being 7-8 hard copies of address books;  significant progress has been made since then. 

Our Accounting system (Tally) which was running on a 2007 version was upgraded to the latest Tally ERP (2016 version) for the new financial year.  
Building a fire-exit for the first floor halls & completing some of the unfinished repair work (under the able supervision of our Treasurer, Vernon Alvares) were some of the other matters that were addressed
