President’s Report This year has proven to be quite difficult financially for the Canberra Southern Cross Club with overall profit for 2009–2010 being $677,701 on revenue of over $45 million, representing just over 1 per cent return on both capital and turnover. Margins are still very tight, requiring constant management and executive monitoring on pricing and cost control. Clubs are not the gold mines that some in the community and particularly the media would have you believe. Taxes, Federal Government regulation, and the anti club mentality of some elements of the media in Canberra threatens the continued existence of clubs as we know them. The closure of the Yamba club from the end of September is further evidence of this – a very difficult decision the Board has had to make with a great deal of regret. Despite difficult trading conditions over the last year however, the Club has made some major achievements. The Board made a conscious decision to maintain the same community contribution as last year of $1.6 million and presented cheques to 100 community and charitable organisations at the Charities lunch in early August, attended by the Chief Minister, other Members of the Legislative Assembly and Federal members Annette Ellis and Gary Humphries. Another major achievement was winning the ACT Club of the Year in the large club division for an exemplary two years in a row. This award only makes us more determined to continue to raise industry standards and respond to the growing and changing needs of our members. 2010 has also been a year of consolidation – the Woden Club has seen an upgrade of it’s bar and lounge area. At Jamison the car park has been extended and new signage provided. At the Yacht Club a review of parking issues is underway and a parking survey is proposed for later in the year.

Some Member Service improvements have also been introduced, such as: • The provision of healthy meal and small appetite options at Henry’s Family Restaurant at Woden, Tuggeranong and Jamison. • The introduction of StarRewards enabling members making food and beverage purchases to redeem their points for other services in the Club. • The establishment of a New Members night providing an introduction to new members to the services provided by the Club. • The redevelopment of the CSCC Web Page allowing for greater functionality. • A continued focus on the environment and ways of reducing our carbon footprint. In recognition of our commitment in providing services to members, we also won the Member Services Award for the ninth time out of the ten years the award has been presented. So what does the future hold? The Board is committed to: • Maintaining it’s leadership role in community contributions. • Reducing debt – a debt reduction strategy is in place and being actioned. • A continuing focus on developing facilities and services in areas of members demand, such as Health and Fitness, Events Centre and in the Northside of Canberra. Whilst there is still much to be done, the recognition that the Club received at the ClubsACT award night indicates that most things are being done well and I thank CEO Greg Mitchell, General Manager Carol Sawyer, their dedicated staff and the Board for their continued dedication and hard work.

Company Secretary Greg Mitchell (from 27 May 2009) – Greg is Chief Executive Officer of Canberra Southern Cross Club.

Principal Activities The consolidated entity’s activity in the course of the financial year was the operation of licensed club facilities. During the financial year there was no significant change in the nature of that activity. The entity’s short term objectives are: • To provide a diverse range of services and amenities to members and their guests based on Christian standards. • Providing for families through offering family friendly facilities.

2

CSCC Annual Report 2009–2010

• To provide support to the community either financially, through donation of food or by providing facilities. The entity’s long term objectives are: To be the premier club in the Australian Capital Territory by: • Developing and reviewing a strategy for quality investments, services and memberships; • Maintaining innovative, diverse responsible cost effective services to members; • Exploring and developing opportunities for diversifying investments; • Fostering family values and Christian standards; • Being recognised for providing positive and constructive community support.


To achieve these objectives, the entity has adopted the following strategies: The Club strives to attract and retain quality staff that are committed to working in the hospitality industry. The Club believes that retaining quality staff will assist with the success of the Club in both the short and long term. The Club is committed to providing excellent customer service. This is achieved through the Club’s Customer Service Charter and training staff in technical skills and knowledge. The Club prides itself on productive working relationships of its staff. Through the Club’s culture of Christian standards, the Club continues to meet consistent high level of community support through the annual grants program together with a comprehensive sporting grants program. In addition to these major programs the Club is committed to the wider community by providing facilities and donated food, this is evidenced by ongoing support of various community groups. The Club has strong financial management and corporate governance which is managed through the Club’s business plan, key performance indicators, risk management plan and internal audit program. Monitoring of financial performance is reviewed on a monthly basis by executive management and Directors.

Future Developments Disclosure of information regarding likely developments in the operations of the consolidated entity in future financial years and the expected results of those operations is likely to result in unreasonable prejudice to the consolidated entity. Accordingly, this information has not been disclosed in this report.

Indemnification of Officers and Auditors During the financial year, the company paid a premium in respect of a contract insuring the directors of the company (as named on page 2), the company secretary, and all executive officers of the company and of any related body corporate against a liability incurred as such a director, secretary or executive officer to the extent permitted by the Corporations Act 2001. The contract of insurance prohibits disclosure of the nature of the liability and the amount of the premium. The consolidated entity has not otherwise, during or since the financial year, indemnified or agreed to indemnify an officer or auditor of the company or of any related body corporate against a liability incurred as such an officer or auditor.

Dividends

Directors’ Meetings

In accordance with the constitution, the company is a company limited by guarantee to the extent of $2.00 per member, and accordingly no shares or debentures have been issued and no dividends have been recommended or paid since the start of the financial year.

The following table sets out the number of directors’ meetings (including meetings of committees of directors) held during the financial year and the number of meetings attended by each director (while they were a director or committee member).

Review of Operations Operations comprised the running of licensed club facilities and the provision of member services.

Changes in State of Affairs During the financial year there was no significant change in the state of affairs of the consolidated entity other than that referred to in the financial statements or notes thereto.

Subsequent Events There has not been any matter or circumstance that has arisen since the end of the financial year, that has significantly affected, or may significantly affect, the operations of the consolidated entity, the results of those operations, or the state of affairs of the consolidated entity in future financial years.
