Officer Reports

President: Debbie Young:

  1. We still need a Sargeant-at-arms so Debbie asked if anyone would like to volunteer to be Sargeant-at-arms. Jim Salih volunteered, Kathy Denton nominated Jim and made a motion that we vote him into the role. Debbie asked if anyone else is interested in the role. None heard, a second was made for Jim, a vote was taken and Jim was unanimously voted into the role. Debbie shared that Jim now fills the roles of Sargeant-at-arms, Treasurer, and Immediate Past President.
  2. SCTM has earned 10 out of 10 points toward the Distinguished club award so we have achieved President’s Distinguished.
