M/S, the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting was waived.
S I C: Front-benchers are still recruiting back-benchers.
B-17: It will arrive 20 May and depart 27 May. EAA is this year asking hosts to obtain sponsorships (cash or in-kind) totaling $6,000. This amount will result in ride sales commissions of $30 per seat. Other details have yet to be finalized. Warren will contact radio and TV stations to see if they'll participate.
Scholarship: The applications are out in the community and some potential applicants have contacted us with questions. At least one application has been received.
Nominating: Warren (Chair), Crash, and Pete will meet after this meeting to select the other two (non-board) members of the committee. The committee must publish their slate of board members by 11 December 2013, thirty days prior to the annual meeting of the membership scheduled for 11 January 2014.
Electronic survey: The survey was published to the board for comments. There was some concern that the survey was too owner-centric. Ron will be advised so that he take that into account when finalizing the survey.
Some summer flying events were discussed, to include Fairchild in May (we have not yet been invited), PAE GA Day in May, CWB Day with the B-17 in May (expected but not confirmed), a fly-in picnic at Auburn in May, Olympia in July, VAW in August, and a new event at Skagit (BVS) in September. More details will be provided next month.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 2:12 PM
