New Business:

  • The Board agreed to explore methods of conducting club elections outside of the normal December monthly meeting. The goal is to hold the election approx. one week before the December meeting. The reason for this is to avoid disrupting the meeting and to allow members to vote even if they are not able to attend the December meeting.
  • The Board reviewed the bylaws and agreed to certain changes. Further review and discussion is needed to complete and finalize the update to our bylaws.
  • The Board discussed the possible need for raising membership dues from $25 to $30, in order to ensure adequate funds for holding the next DX convention. (Note that the dues have not changed in over 20 years and have not kept up with inflation). This discussion was tabled and needs to be discussed with the full Board quorum.
  • Justin shared the proposed Salmon Run Rules changes and collected additional feedback from the Board, including a change to allow the Expedition Class to operate mobile, to and from the various expedition sites. Justin to coordinate further and re- send the proposed changes to the Board via e-mail.

Respectfully Submitted,
Tom Sykes, NU7J
