Board Meeting Summary

Synopsis of Minutes of Board of Directors Meeting October 10, 2016.

By:  John Ritter

The meeting was held at the home of John Ritter.  The meeting was called to order at 6:25 pm by the President, Sheree Anshel.  The Directors in attendance were:  Sheree Anshel, Jeri Brooke, Rob Brooke, Sharon Heckman, Howard Kantor, John Logan, Chuck Mollard, Paddy Mollard, John Ritter and Ellen Sherk.  A quorum was present.

The minutes from the August Board Meeting were approved.

Sheree Anshel indicated that candidates are currently being sought for the club’s VP position for 2017.  This position is critical in that the VP will step into the President position in 2018.  The October President’s Letter and subsequent email blasts will solicit interested parties from the membership.  A nominating committee will consider nominees and make final recommendations to the Board at which point the Board will recognize the name(s) to be put forth to the general membership for ratification at the Bash.

A number of club members have expressed concern about the membership growth and the effects that this number (736), as well as further growth, will have upon the various club activities.  The Board discussed this and agreed to meet as a collective group to focus solely upon growth and how to adapt the club’s policies and practices to deal with this issue.

John Logan indicated the club’s financial position is strong and that the Y-T-D financials are essentially on budget except for greater revenues from new membership.

Sharon Heckman indicated that there will be an email blast to members concerning renewals.  The email blast will include a link to the application form.

Paddy Mollard indicated the Halloween party will be held at Sun Peak on October 28th and that the Holiday Party will be held in concert with the Newcomers at the Marriott on Dec 3rd.

Chuck Mollard summarized the highly successful Summer Sports program.  In addition to the biking, hiking and golf events, the new events of tennis and paddling were quite successful and well attended.  Also, there were four extended outings:  Moab Week, Moab Weekend, Yosemite and Grand Canyon.

Ellen Sherk indicated that the Winter Sports Kickoff will be held mid-Nov as an RSVP event.  Watch your email blasts for details.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 pm.
