The Commodore, Nancy Littlefair, announced that Rosemary Brooks is
retiring from the board and Treasurer, Susan Bunting, will only serve
through her current term which ends May 31, 2013.
Harold Beer was nominated by the Commodore to fill the vacancy left by
Rosemary Brooks. Paul Wrbanich seconded the nomination and the vote was
A discussion followed about replacing the Treasurer whose primary
duties are checking the club P.O. Box for membership applications,
depositing the membership dues and mailing the applications to the
Secretary for updating the website and mailing out membership cards and
directories. This requires constant monitoring of the P.O. Box. It was
pointed out that if the membership applications were sent directly to
the Secretary and the bank was a national bank with many branches like
Chase or Fifth Third, the Secretary could deposit the dues directly and
inform the Treasurer of his actions. This would remove the onus of
having to check the P.O. Box so often.
The Commodore announced the following chairmanships:
Al Littlefair - Membership
Barb Casey - Social
Mike Wisniewski - 50/50 Raffle
The schedule of Special Events for 2013 was passed out along
with a budget. Each event was discussed and compared to last year as to
costs and expected revenue. It was decided that approval of the budget
would wait until the annual meeting because some events could change.
The Board adjourned at 3:57 PM.
