The highlights of the meeting included the announcement of a small surplus, the induction of three new Life Members and the selection of three Board members from an outstanding pool of nominated candidates.

Acting Chairman Ric Horsfall was pleased to announce to the members a surplus for the year of $26,000.00.  He acknowledged the support of the Canterbury Cricket Association (CCA) and a number of funding and strategic partners who had helped contribute to the result.

Rob Dixon and Fergus Smith were both re-elected to the CMCA board and a new board member, Jackie Behrnes was also elected by the members.  Jackie replaces Ashley Taggart who stood down due to his involvement with the CCA Board.  Taggart was acknowledged for his significant contribution to the Board, including holding the post of Chairperson for the last three years.

CMCA President Alec Astle was delighted to bestow Life Memberships on three individuals on behalf of the CMCA, each who have made a massive contribution to cricket for over forty years.  Bernie Hamilton from the Umpires Association was acknowledged for his outstanding work in the middle, officiating and holding a number of executive positions on the committee for more than thirty years.

Tim Murdoch was inducted for his lengthy service for the Riccarton Cricket Club where he has served on the committee for more than forty years, holding a number of senior positions during this time. 

Lesley Murdoch was acknowledged for significant contribution to cricket as a player, administrator, coach and advocate for cricket from grass roots to international level.
