Unfinished Business:

  • George Kiser states, “We had a motion moved, then tabeld last week – The motion was we accept and use the new authorization for South County Toastmasters to use people’s images, pictures, and depictions, for our social media sites and any pictures we take.”
  • JD motioned to take the proposal off the table.
  • Patrick seconded the motion.
  • George asked if there were any comments on the authorization.
  • Tom Terrific comments, “How are we going to keep track of the authorization? Every six months we have new leadership, it would be nice to have one person that could keep these records.” Tom goes on to ask, “Do you respond via email or do you sign a physical piece of paper?”
  • George responds, “We need to determine a way to keep the forms so we don’t lose them. I suggest the Secretary or the new committee for IT (which we are currently forming) will announce a solution over the next couple of weeks.  
  • George Kiser adds, “No plan has been made concerning how members will sign the authorization, however this is a matter we can discuss. The authorization is operative to be signed only once by each Toastmaster.”
  • Jim Salih suggests SCTM stores the forms on the club website.
  • George Kiser responds, “The IT committee or the Secretary can determine, then let everyone know how they will keep track of the forms.”
  • Tom Terrific, “I’ll volunteer, if people want to send them to me, I will take care of them, scan them in, and make sure they don’t get lost.”
  • The motion for the authorization was passed.
  • The executive board will look into and discuss the best way to gather and store the authorization forms.
