President Reichardt announced that we are doing very well in reaching our goals for the year, we have 2CC’s and 2AC’s we still need 2 more of each. We also need 2 CL’s before July. Our paperwork was on time, as of our renewal, so 6 of our 10 goals are completed.
Area Gov Becca Clark gave us a glowing report stating that we are a model of how effective Toastmasters meeting are run. We asked her to come back in Jan. to give a speech explaining how all the award levels fit together focusing on the leadership requirements of the levels, also, sponsoring, coaching, area/district offices and HPI projects.
Education Committee is preparing an exit poll to find out why members left.
Dick Shields passed around a sign up sheet for the Holiday Party. He will send it again or you can sign up on line.
It was suggested that we leave out the White Elephant gift to make more time for socializing.
Dee McAliney suggested a trivia game with a prize.
Adam Kutell proposed that we look into a new meeting place since we were meeting in a room with no air conditioning.
Dick Shields reminded us that this room is free and it only happens a few times a year that we are in this particular room.
Rob VanWinkle reminded us that when we are in our regular room the air conditioner is too loud.
Howard weighed in with the fact that we used to meet at the Best Western and they charged us $62 a week and it was not nearly as nice or big. We were extremely fortunate that Dick Shields was able to get this room.
Mike Marian suggested that we have a committee to look into a backup room.
Adam Kutell agreed to head a committee to look into an alternative.
Diane Fawcett, VP Membership suggested we postpone induction of a new member until next meeting since the business meeting ran so long.
