Discussion included ideas for meeting formats and for increasing member involvement in the planning aspects of the club. Generally there was only one nominee for each committee chair position and the 4 Board positions were difficult to fill. The Bylaws allow for an officer to serve more than 2 terms if no other member is nominated/elected for the role. Ideas provided by members: announce board member meetings to members; identify “at-large” members who might be more inclined to attend a Board meeting than a typical member; Have 2 members share an Officer position; have an agenda for club and Board meetings; have a Board meeting immediately before or after a monthly club meeting.
The photo activity for the month was suggested by Vera back in October: Provide a few photos to Dawn – Theme: “the little things that make life pleasant, things you are thankful for”. Dawn provided a slide show of the submittals and members discussed photos and thankfulness.
Dawn provided THANK YOUs to all those who helped out during the year 2018.
Club calendars were available for purchase and members are encouraged to sell some to the public and come back for more. $10 each or 6 for $50.
