Thank you all for coming and joining us here today. We are pleased to be able to welcome those of you that have been with us for some time now as well as those of you who are new to our (group/community/association etc.).
Today marks our (5th) (annual) group meeting and we are very proud to be able to host it today here at (location) with all of you.
Just before we get started, I would like to express my gratitude to all of you who so generously helped us make this event come together smoothly, (names of individuals you wish to thank here) we couldn't have done it without you!
In today's gathering I would like to focus on all our new volunteers whom have joined us since (January 2011 etc.).
You have all chosen to be a part of our association because of our mutual passion for (subject matter relative to the association). Your passions help us all to come together as one and the energy we create as one allows us to achieve our individual as well as group goals. We need you as much as you need us and this is why we are so happy to have you join us here at (name of association).
During the next few months, you will be getting to know more about our different initiatives through our planned activities and special events where you will be able to join in and get your very own hands on experiences. I hope that these will prove to be memorable and fulfilling for you...
These are of course not the only things that are important here to us - you will also be meeting lots of new people and making new friends along the way.
Here at (name of association) we value and cherish the friendships we make as they more often than not prove to be formed on a strong common ground which in turn makes them last for many many, years to come!
Well I think that I have gone on long enough, I need to leave some time for (name) to introduce himself to all of you and fill you in on some of our up coming (activities/projects) before you all get too bored today!
So a very warm welcome to all of you, please come find me in the (lobby) when (name) is done if you have any questions, suggestions or just want to meet and say hi!
