Vice Chair Seat (TK) – Tabled from last meeting. No other candidates besides Faceplant for this position have stepped up. Do we wait again, or do we set up anonymous ballot through survey monkey to conform to By-Law regs?
BikerVet mentioned that Parliamentary rules state that since Faceplant was running unopposed we can/should hold a voice vote.
BikerVet motioned; 2nd: Wingmaster
CFC Restructuring (TK-Spellcheck) – Tabled from last meeting. The CFC of Washington requirements have changed, we need a dedicated phone number and an availability of an “office” that would be open 15 hrs per week.
Motion Angel motioned that under the guide lines we qualify for King County CFC because Peggy has a home office she is willing to use for the 15hours a week and Neal will set up a phone line. The BOD will then be notified when a call comes in and we are to respond if we are going to work it.
GOTG All call for volunteers to help with planning – TK to send, has it been done? – Yes
Presentation Bags for plaques (TK) – TK was contacted by an RC who has made protective keepsake quality pouches for some missions he has done. He has inquired about the possibility of a patch designed for sewing on to them. A design is pending at this time. Is this something we want to pursue?
Motion BikerVet Motioned we table this item at least until a patch design has been submitted
Good of the Order –
Stretch mentioned he would be making a request for a donation to the Gold Star families again for time of Remembrance. TK will place under new business on next meeting’s agenda.
