Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) 2019. November 1. Bermudians holding the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants designation can now be recognised professionally in Bermuda, in a field where only members of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Bermuda had been previously accorded recognition. Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, said yesterday that the legislative amendments behind the change, which came into effect on October 21, would “open doors” for Bermudians. Local students can obtain the ACCA designation at the Bermuda College, and will not have to travel overseas to qualify as CPAs to practise professionally on the island. Mr Rabain added: “As a profession that is heavily reliant on non-Bermudian accountants, it was critical to the Government to ensure avenues are open to Bermudians who wish to join the accounting profession. It is this government’s goal to see the partnership between the ACCA and the Bermuda College flourish, and enable Bermudians to obtain professional accounting designation without needing to leave their island home.”

The Bermuda Hotel Association (BHA) has been in continued existence prior to 1927, when there existed a Bermuda Hotel and Men’s Association (BHMA). The BHMA was established exclusively for the financial success of its members’ hotel operations. This resembles the BMA's current mission statement, revised in 2000, to:
  •   Control and enhance the sustainable development of hotel beds in Bermuda. 
  •  Increase the number of air arrivals. 
  • Increase the national hotel occupancy. 
  • To improve the return on investment to hotel investors.
  •  Be a resource centre for its members. 
  • Coordinate marketing of Bermuda and member properties in partnership with the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA). and develop marketing strategies which enhance effectiveness, encourage properties to cooperatively market and to be solely responsible for marketing product while the BTA  markets Bermuda. 
  • To lift the profile of the industry in Bermuda and re-establish the importance of the industry and its attractiveness to Bermudians. 
  • Ensure the BHA is included and part of all aspects of the Bermuda community in a meaningful manner. 
  • To become a major, proactive player, working with the Bermuda College to attract more young Bermudians back into our industry. 
  • To liaise with and lobby Government on behalf of its members in all aspects of public policy and application relevant to the industry. 
  • Promote positive human relations and opportunity for its staff. 
  • To organize itself so it is ready, able and qualified to recognize challenges, seize opportunities and generally improve the overall health of the industry”.

The BHA membership has three classifications of hotels—small: 99 or less beds / medium: 100 to 299 beds and large hotels: 300+ beds.  We currently have 31 members comprising small / medium / large with each category having its own chairman. The BHA officers comprise of a Chairman, President, President Elect and Chief Executive Officer whose responsibility is to advance the interest of the BHA members to their trade partners, the Bermuda Government and other trade associations, whose businesses have a direct or indirect impact on hotel operations. During the early 1960’s with the advent of unionization of the hotels by the Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU), the BHA caused the formation of the Hotel Employers of Bermuda (HEB), which is a registered trade union and whose responsibility is to engage in collective bargaining with the Hotel Division of the BIU.  This organization also advises the Hotel Industry on all matters pertaining to human relations, discipline and employee benefit programmes. The BHA is optimistic that it will soon enjoy an increase in new hotel development, increasing our bed bank and diversity of membership.

At its AGM on October 25, 2018 at the Hamilton Princess Hotel, The Bermuda Hotel Association [BHA] announced new appointments to their Board of Directors. Mr. Tim Morrison, General Manager, the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club was nominated unopposed, and subsequently voted in by the association members as the new Bermuda Hotel Association President.

Bermuda Medicinal Cannabis Association 2019. October 15. A group of doctors and pharmacists have joined forces to promote the use of medical cannabis. Now the Bermuda Medicinal Cannabis Association is to meet with the Government next month to offer its expertise as Bermuda prepares legislation to allow use of the drug for patient treatment. A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health confirmed yesterday a meeting with the BMCA, which will also include the Ministry of Legal Affairs, would be organised. Association member Kyjuan Brown, the medical director at Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre and a long-term campaigner for medical marijuana, said: “At Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre, we remain committed to engaging in local and international research and educational opportunities that will further enhance the care that we provide to our patients.” Dr Brown was speaking after a group of medical professionals attended the American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association’s annual conference in Florida earlier this month. He said: “On behalf of NMAC and the many patients in Bermuda who can benefit from this evolving alternative medicine, I was pleased to join a conglomerate of local doctors in attending the AMMPA conference where we engaged with like-minded physicians from around the world who shared the latest evidence-based research on medicinal cannabis. Since 2014, I have been advocating for patients to have access to medical cannabis, I look forward to the day when marijuana will become a legal treatment option.” The BMCA is headed by pharmacist Jennie Lightbourne and was set up to educate fellow professionals and the public on the benefits of medical cannabis. The group attended the US conference with Annabel Fountain, an endocrinologist, a specialist in glands, hormones and metabolism, and Cindy Morris, a doctor and pain management specialist at Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre. A spokesman said the delegation learnt that marijuana had potential benefits in a variety of conditions, from diabetes to post traumatic stress disorder. Dr Fountain said she was cautious about unintended consequences of marijuana use, especially the risk of psychosis, but that there were potential benefits for some diabetes patients. She added: “Areas of benefit that I’m excited about are the use of cannabis products to treat diabetic neuropathy, to assist in recovery after brain injury and to reduce dependence on opioids. Bermuda has so many road injuries and stroke disease and we exceed the national quota of opioid medications for pain from the International Narcotics Control Board every year. For these indications, cannabis is established as a safe alternative.” Dr Morris said: “The incorporation of cannabis-related products paired with my knowledge of pain management of the nervous system answers many questions that traditional medicine has not answered.” Ms Benyak-Pitcher, a pharmacist and secretary of the BMCA, said she was interested in research that indicated cannabis could be used to treat a range of conditions including autism, brain injuries and strokes, chronic pain, anxiety, inflammatory bowel disease, as well as post traumatic stress disorder. She said: “I see medical cannabis as an alternative way to complement our traditional approach to ailments.” The American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association is the largest medical cannabis association for doctors in the world and was set up to give healthcare professionals information on the use of the drug as an alternative treatment. Delegates to the Florida conference included top doctors, scientists, and lawyers, including Nikki Fried, Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture, and Hinanit Koltai, who represented the Israeli Government. David Burt, the Premier, said in 2018 that the cannabis cultivation for medical reasons was to be legalized and the first licences for its production would be issued this year.

Freemasonry in Bermuda There are three Grand Lodges represented in Bermuda: The United Grand Lodge of England with 5 Lodges under a Grand Inspector; District Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Bermuda with 4 Chapters under a Grand Superintendent; and the Provincial Grand Lodge of Bermuda, Irish Constitution under the Grand Lodge of Ireland with 4 Lodges (postal address is The Provincial Grand Lodge of Bermuda, Irish Constitution, PO Box HM 2295, Hamilton HM JX, Bermuda). In late May 2006, there was the Consecration of The District Grand Lodge of Bermuda on the Grand Registry of the United Grand Lodge of England. The District Grand Lodge of Bermuda embraces all five local lodges of the English Constitution. The first Provincial Grand Master of the District Grand Lodge of Bermuda is Robert William Rego, JP. A Hamilton businessman, he was upgraded from the status he has held since 2004 as Grand Inspector of local English Freemasonry when he took over from Charles W. Kempe, who was some ten years in the post. They were in succession to a line dating to 1928 when the first Grand Inspector was appointed. Freemasonry existed in Bermuda in 1744-45 (earliest historical record), when the Earl of Strathmore, then Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of both England and Scotland, appointed Governor Allured Popple as Provincial Grand Master for the Islands of Bermuda. Oldest Lodges are Prince Alfred No 233 (EC), originally chartered under the Moderns in 1792 as No 507, and later in 1801 under the Ancients, Lodge St. George No 200 (SC), date of Charter 7th August 1797 and Atlantic Phoenix No 224 (EC) date of Charter 9th August 1797. The latter two celebrated 200 years in 1997. Some other organizations include Royal Order of Scotland, Royal Arch, Rose Croix and Knights Templar. The Masonic Temple is at Khyber Pass, Warwick The following meet (contact them directly for dates and times) at Freemasons Hall, Reid Street, Hamilton, or elsewhere by prior notification.

Founded in 1918 by LN (Dickie) Tucker OBE after he was present on New Year's Day for the funeral of US sailor Thomas Crealy. His father the Rev Arthur Tucker, had conducted the service and a shipmate had asked the lad to help. Formed in 1919 as another aspect of the Bermuda Sailors Home he also founded. The Guild tends the graves of merchant seamen who died in Bermuda waters and are buried here. (The Guild also began laying wreaths at sea for sailors lost in Bermuda waters in December 1988). The Guild is still responsible for the upkeep of about 25 sailors’ graves at St Peter’s Church in St George’s, including Mr Crealy’s. It conducts an annual wreath- laying ceremony to commemorate sailors who have died in Bermuda. The annual wreath laying normally takes place in the summer and Guild members normally go out on one of the container ships or a cruise liner and conduct the ceremony off Five Fathom Hole. These days, sailors who die in Bermuda tend to be shipped home, so there are not many new graves to take care of. But the Guild pay a maintenance fee in Bermuda to the churchyards concerned, or graveyards involved to keep Mr Tucker’s vision alive.

Hotel Employers of Bermuda (HEB) Contact via the Bermuda Hotel Association. The bargaining and labor relations organization, or trade union, representing hotels in Bermuda. At its AGM held at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club on Thursday 25th October 2018, Mr. Kiaran MacDonald was reappointed by the HEB members to serve a second two year term as the HEB President.

The Hotel Pension Plan [HPP] is a private pension plan covering employees who work in a job classification covered by the collective bargaining agreement between the Hotel Employers of Bermuda and the Bermuda Industrial Union [BUI]. This Plan, known as the Hotel Pension Plan [HPP], was designed to provide a lifetime pension for those employees who work in the hotel industry until age 65, with at least 2 years of service within the industry. Employees automatically become a participant of the HPP as soon as they start work in a hotel whose conditions of employment are guided by the collective bargaining agreement between the Hotel Employers of Bermuda and the BUI. They can receive pension benefits at age 65 if they have enough service credit.  Should they continue to work in covered employment, within the hotel industry, they will no longer be required to make contributions to the Plan. The cost they will pay is subject to the amount negotiated via the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for example in 2018-2019 it is $0.46 for each compensated hour. The cost the hotel employer will pay on their behalf is also subject to the amount negotiated via the Collective Bargaining Agreement. For example, in 2018-2019 it is $0.52 for each compensated hour.  The day-to-day administration is handled by The Hotel Pension Fund Office under the direction of Mr. Dennis Tucker, Plan Administrator. The Trustees are responsible for investing all plan assets and adopting rules and regulations governing benefit payments. The Trustees are nominated by the Bermuda Industrial Union and the Hotel Employers of Bermuda (3 by each body), and approved by the Minister of Finance, who also appoints the Chairman of the Board. Pension payments start as soon as the employee has met all of the requirements such as age and service and files a completed Pension Application form. Payments are made on the first day of the month.

Society of Non-Mariners, now defunct Until 2018 had an annual Non-Mariners race, usually first Sunday every August after Cup Match at Mangrove Bay, Somerset, Sandys Parish. First began in August 1964 in Hamilton, Bermuda by amateur non-sailors deliberately launching non-seaworthy and distinctly non-nautical home-made floating in often hilarious unsea-worthy crafts of any type and design as a joke against the well-established and prim sailing clubs of Bermuda and their 1960s sailing correctness. It has been claimed, but this is incorrect that a drunken bunch of men were involved. In fact, they were not solely men, single women were instigators too, driven by the maleness-only of the more established sailors. Nor were the majority drunk, they were sober, just mischievous, boat-less. Their unorthodox "vessels" were cranked by hand or by pedals or by the wind and were often accompanied by raucous noises, providing much amusement to many residents and visitors at the annual event which became hugely popular. After one such event had a zany entry almost collide with a cruise ship entering Hamilton Harbor, the Society of Non-Mariners, as the organizers became, the event was switched to the less-busy but picturesque Mangrove May, hosted by the Sandys Boat Club (but not mentioned by date, time or photos of previous year on its website). The event now includes family frolics, youngsters jumping off "boats" and rocks, mock boat battles, some ingenious unorganized surprises.
