Board Meeting Summary

Board Meeting Summary

By:  John Ritter

The meeting was held on April 3, 2018 at the home of Dan Albano.  The meeting was called to order at 7:20 pm by the President, John Logan.  The Directors in attendance were:  Dan Albano, Ira Braun, Jeri Brooke, Trixie Hoogcarspel, John Logan, Ruth Mather, John Miller and Ellen Sherk.   A quorum was present.

The Board Minutes from February Board Meeting were approved.

The club continues to be in good financial shape and has a very strong cash balance.

Total current club membership is 680 which is an increase of 57 members since March 1st.  It is to be noted that the current club membership does not include many 2017 members that did not renew as of December 31, 2017.  As in the past, members who engage primarily in spring and summer activities do not renew their membership until the spring or summer seasons.  The Board fully expects that once the later renewals are in place the total club membership will be in excess of 800, as the club finished in 2017

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”.

Planning is underway for the Dogs and Suds event which will be held on June 15 and the Jordanelle event which will be held on July 20th.

The Summer Coordinators Meeting is planned to be held in the late April – early May time period.  Specific date and location are, at this point, TBD

The Winter Sports programs all had an excellent season despite challenges with less snowfall than previous years.  A heartfelt thanks to all the winter sports coordinators and leaders!

It was agreed that the Volunteers Appreciation Party for club members that volunteered in some capacity this past year will held at the Dejoria Center on April 11.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:17 pm.
