Other items discussed at the board meeting

At the first meeting of the year, we do want to update the E-mail/cell phone/address list.

New membership packets, would be transferred to Crystal.  It was also discussed if new business cards should be printed with Crystalís phone number.  The current cards have Roe phone number.

It was also brought up that we need to give the new membership packets, a better explanation of point system.

Participation in parades, it was brought up that it is difficult to recognize that our group of cars is actually the Indian River Corvette Club.  It was suggest that we could get a banner made to fit on one of the convertibles and that convertible lead and or bring up the tail end.

It was also suggested to check into the "cling on" windshield signs, depending on costs.

Web page updates were also discussed.  Tom had many great ideas to update the web page, including colander of events for our club, surrounding clubs, applications, officer information, photos, Minutes, etc

Minutes of the Board Meeting of 2/03

Membership packets need to include all of in NCCC info.

It was requested that everyone need to RSVP for the mystery theater

 dinner. In fact, we discussed a need to RSVP for all events, which requires preparation for a certain number of people.  We seem to have a trend of many people stating that they will participate in events and then many of them do not actually attend.  We all understand that there are emergencies and unexpected events that come up that keep some of us from attending.  But this creates a lot of extra work for the people doing the preparation for the event.  It was suggested to have a pre-payment for events, such as the mystery theater dinner, that require purchasing and preparation of food.

Need to get an updated list of paid up IRCC and NCCC members.  We also need a current list of memberís addresses, phone number, cell phone numbers and E-mail addresses. (pass around a legal pad for everyone to list address, phone/cell number, & e-mail address)  Not only has the area code changed, which we all know, but there are a lot of cell phone and internet companies out their competing for everyoneís business and we have a tendency to forget to relay our new addresses/numbers.

As to prior members not paid this year, it was suggested that the person who signed that member up, give them a personal call to touch base with them

Business cards, we do need new business cards and it was suggested to leave the phone number blank so that the person leaving the card could simply write their phone number in.  Tom is going to get those for us.

The bi-laws, they were originally typed in October 1999, then in the spring of 2001 there were many hand written changes, but were never retyped.  I will make sure they do get retyped in the very near future and a copy will be provide to all the officers and possible put on the web page.  Of course if any one is interested in reading them, just let me know

Need for additional access to the P.O. Box.  It was motioned by Sue and seconded by Lucy to have 2 additional P.O. box keys made, one for the president and one for the vice president.

The Points System:  Lots of discussion about the point system.  Everything from how do you earn points, keeping the point list on the web, the value of points for attending an event that is 75 miles away is less than attending events close to home, what is really a club function vs. a corvette event, who gets the points for signing people up, it is the person who invites them to a meeting/function, or the person that happens to accept the check.  After a very long discussion, it was motioned to suspend the point system, the motion was seconded and approved 7-1 to, suspend the point system, at least temporarily.

However, after some of the feed back from the entire membership, it obvious that not everyone is in agreement with this and perhaps should be voted on by the entire club.

Minutes of the board meeting of 4/1/03

John opened the meeting with the announcement that due to personal reason, Tony Taylor had resigned from the club.  Since Tony was Officer at large, his position would need to be replaced.

Article VI. Section F. of the Club By-Laws define the Officer at Large as follows:

The Officer at Large will serve as a member of the board of directors and will assist other officers as necessary in carrying on the club business.  The Officer at Large shall be further designated Publicity Chairman.

Section H states, If, for any reason an officer resigns, or leave office, a member will be proposed by the board of directors and presented to the general membership at the next regular meeting for approval. He/she will serve out the office for the remainder of the year.

There were several suggestions for possible replacements. 

Amy has suggested Cathy Callaway, who has a degree in Journalism, and has the time.

John has recommended Denver and Bill Ulisky.

It was also suggested to post the position on the Web page.

We all agreed that would want to check with each of the possible candidates to confirm that they were willing and had the time to invest in the office.

John appointed Denver as the office at large, pro temp until the next election.

John has also indicated that he was going to call the old members that had not renewed, to touch base with them to see if there was any interest in rejoining.

Alternative Insurance again was brought up, Dick is checking into the possibilities of alternative insurance.

John has suggested that it would be up the Terry and Sue to determine what would be a club activity and the number of activities.  3 per month seemed to be a good number, the formal meeting, the mystery dinner ride and then some other activity.

Alternative insurance from what we receive through N.C.C.C.

 There were 3 proposals brought to the meeting with the similar coverage  in an alternative to NCCC, which is $30.00 per member per year which is $1,000,000.00 per occurrence

    1.         J.C. Taylor Inc. through Zurich, premium per year is $505.00
    2.        Spectrum  through Hartford Fire Insurance, premium $286.28, this also has a                     $2,000,000.00 General Aggregate on the policy
    3.        Sid Banack Insurance Agency, premium of $116.00 per year based on 55 members.

Beth made the motion to accept the bid of  Sid Banack and bring before the general membership for approval.   Motion was seconded by Denver.   Approval  by the Board was unanimous.

It was announced that the  committee to update the BI-laws would meet in Thursday August 8, 2003.  Sue volunteered to host committee, meeting to start at 7:00 p.m.  The only members of that committee not in attendance of the Board meeting were Rob and Sherry.  Sue volunteered to phone them and advise of the meeting.

In an effort to give the club a more personal touch,  John indicated that it would be nice to give a phone call to members prior to meetings and events, especially for those who do not have  a computer to receive e-mails or are just not computer friendly.   John offered to call each member.  Amy suggested in an effort to alleviate the volume of the job to divide the list in half and have a 3rd person as a back up person.  Sue volunteered that if she was provided with a complete phone list, she would get a committee together.

New Memberships were addressed.,  a potential new member brought it to Amyís attention that there is a breakdown in communications in how we process the new memberships.   So it was agreed to process new membership applications as follows

1.        John picks up the mail at the post office and provides Amy with the check and application.
2.         Amy deposits the check
3.        then sends the original application to Crystal via mail
4.        and faxes the application information to Tom to update the data base and assign a membership number.
5.        email to all of the officers.

For all of Tomís hard work on the web page and data base, Sue made a motion to buy to Tom and Hollyannís dinner at the next general meeting.   Motion seconded by Beth.

John mentioned a Club event of going to a Dodger game and indicated he could get free tickets for all.   Either 8/27 or 8/28/03  Sue suggested to schedule for 8/27/03 and then we could have a back up of 8/28/03 in case of rain.  Game starts at 7:00 p.m.  John will be there early to pass out the tickets.  Will all park together. Yellow shirts

Denver made a motion to look at the possibility of  a different place to gather for our mystery rides as it can be difficult to get everyone out in one shot from the Mobil station.    One suggestion was Riverside Park.   John agreed to keep a look out for possible places .

John also suggested that at the end of the regular meeting to make an announcement that the desert run would start in 15 minutes, so that we could all have time to in line for a the caravan.

Terry brought up participation in the Labor Day parade in Vero Beach on Monday September  1, 2003.  John offered to take on the responsibility of  if we were to attend, who would want to attend.

 A motion was made by Lucy Kesler and seconded by Tom Quina to conclude the meeting at 9:00 P.M.

                                                                                                  Respectfully submitted,

Lucy Kesler
