Denise Yergenson - Public Relations - RER needs a separate "historian" to gather and maintain our historical information/records/memorabilia, etc.  We have excellent photographers in Dick Yoder and Eric Smith but Denise has learned that there's no central repository for our historical info.  She will email club members to see if someone has the space and desire to help with this important task.

Old Business

          Bylaw change(s) - No Further action taken yet - Charlie will appoint Past President Bev to finalize this in the coming year. The bylaws need to be changed to reflect our changed club organizational structure, which we began testing during Ritter's year as president and finalized in the current fiscal year.

          Lunch cost proposal - Charlie is meeting with other North State 8 Presidents to discuss this item this week. The group will discuss how to try to reduce the cost of lunches for our meetings/site.

 

New Business

2010-2011 Prep (Captains/Teams; Commitment Forms; Org Chart) - Charlie/Allyn discussed plans for the coming year. By the end of this week, the RER website will have posted the teams for 2010-2011.

 

Keith's idea for Candy Committee - Bev will handle/Keith excused absence - The Board approved by consensus Keith's proposal to establish a new ongoing committee - the Candy Committee!  It will be comprised of the new members in the club, serving to keep our wonderful tradition going (visitors get M&Ms) and engage new members with an immediate responsibility at the same time.

 

District Recognition Dinner July 10th - Bev encouraged the Board (and RER members) to attend the District Recognition Dinner on July 10th at Rolling Hills Casino in Corning!  Our club is being considered for various awards and it would be great to have good representation at the event.
