4th issue on the agenda.
The Executive Board needs to have Executive Committees
At the present time the Executive Committees are but not limited to:

  • Constitution and bylaws - Chairman Jennica Wilcox

  • Registration – Chairman Melissa Ogden

  • DNA - Chairman Melissa Ogden

  • Futurity – Chairman Shane Roberts

    • Member Jennica Wilcox

  • Sponsorship – Chairman 

    • Member Janet Rettenmaier

  • Merchandise – Chairman Melissa Ogden 

5th issue on the agenda.
How the proposed changes to life members in the bylaw amendments will affect the quorum.
At present time we have 80 life + 70 regular= 150 members @ 20% quorum = 30 members needed to have meeting.
Currently, a bigger portion of the life members must be present to meet the quorum. 

What the new Bylaws will require for meeting attendance:

(quorum ONLY counts life members that are ALREADY present)

70 regular members @ 20% = 14
70 regular members + 10 Life Members = 80 @  20% = 16 members to meet quorum
70 regular members + 15 Life Members = 85 @  20% = 17
70 regular members + 20 Life Members = 90 @  20% = 18
2021- 17 life members present

-This makes it easier to have meetings.


Gary Huddleston made the motion to adjourn, John Jacot second. 
Motion passed    Meeting adjourn time 7:05 PM
