Board Meeting Summary

 

By:  John Ritter

The meeting was held at the home of Chuck and Paddy Mollard.  The meeting was called to order at 6:30 pm by the President, Jeri Brooke.  The Directors in attendance were:  Jeri Brooke, Sharon Heckman, John Logan, John Miller, Chuck Mollard, Paddy Mollard, Dan Albano, Howard Kantor, John Ritter and Ellen Sherk.   A quorum was present.

The Board Minutes from the November Board Meeting were approved.

The club continues to be in good financial shape and is forecasted to be favorable to the 2017 budget by year end. The Board approved the proposed club budget for 2018.

In the month of November there were 27 new members. Total membership is currently 833.

The Club’s Annual Audit Committee was conducted on November 17th and the results were presented to the Board.  The conclusion was that the club’s finances are in order.  In addition, several recommendations were made and accepted by the Board to further strengthen the club’s fiduciary controls.  The board thanked the Audit committee for its work.

There was a final email blast to current club members who had not yet renewed their club memberships to inform them that their club membership will lapse as of December 31 of this year and that they will no longer be able to participate in club activities – unless and until they renew.

Members are again reminded that the Calendar on the club’s website is the place to go for information on club events, times, locations, etc.  In addition, there will be an email sent to club members once per week that lists the upcoming week’s events.  If an event is added after the email is sent there will be another email which essentially says: “A new (event) has been scheduled for (date) and is posted on the club’s calendar”.

The club’s Winter Sports Kickoff took place on November 17th.   This event was well attended with approximately 80 club members.

The club’s Holiday Party was held at the Sidewinder Marriott on December 9th.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45 pm.
