Minutes of Board Meeting October 26, 2015
BOARD MEMBERS PRESENT: Alicia McVicker, Ann Lawson, Marie Giusto, Sally Lash, Bob Wildman, Dot Steeves


The meeting was called to order at 5:00 p.m. by President Alicia McVicker.

SECRETARY: On motion made and seconded the Minutes of the last meeting were approved as written.

TREASURER: Sally reported that at the end of September our combined bank balance was $22,495.42. There was no activity in the Travel Account. After spirited bidding, we made approximately $4780 at the service auction. She has deposited $4040 to date. She received one $25 donation at the service auction from Betty Richardson.

V.P. MEMBERSHIP: In Jim’s absence Alicia reported the Nachrichten will go to press on November 2nd and the roster on November 9th.

V.P. SOCIAL: : Marie reported that the Halloween Party is set to go. Norbert and Sandra will give her whatever help she needs with decorations, etc. Advertising for the Christmas Party will be in the November Nachrichten and Marie expects to get responses from those who don’t come to meetings from that exposure. She will begin collecting money at the November meetings. The cost will be $40.00 per person.

V.P. SPECIAL: Ann reported that she has sent in another $6000 partial third deposit for the annual trip. Ann also reported that Dianna Weibe was at the Snow Ball. Dianna took an application form and may be going on the trip. Ann and Sally plan on attending the November L.A. Council meeting as Fred, our insurance agent, will be there. A copy of Ann’ report is attached to these minutes.


ADVISOR: Bob talked about the New Year’s Eve Party--same date as last year folks! He has sign up sheets and is trying for 24 revelers this year.

PRESIDENT: Alicia noted that since she will be out of town there will not be a Board meeting in November. Alicia is planning an appreciation party for the Board on November 28th and any necessary issues facing the Board can be addressed at that time.

NEW BUSINESS: Alicia asked Bob if he would get an early start on trying to recruit people for next year’s Board. Bob responded that he already done so but had not had any luck so far in this regard. Alicia suggested that a presentation be made at a general meeting that most of the present Board members would not be running next year which would create a serious situation with respect to the entire club structure. Bob suggested that Board members speak one-on-one with other Club members about the seriousness of the situation and the importance of standing for an office. Everyone thought this a good idea and agreed to follow up.

The next meeting will be in January at Dot and Jim’s.

There being no further business before the Board the meeting was adjourned at 5:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Dorothy Steeves, Secretary
