M/S, the reading of the minutes of the 08 October meeting was waived.
opening comments were blended in with a short recap of the recent
board retreat. As the players were the same, Greg's point was that
we were going to be emphasizing the social aspect of the squadron and
attempting to get more members involved in the planning and execution
of our various events.
treated us to a primer on Facebook operations and the difference
between our members-only page and our Fan page.
introduced an organizational chart he would like the board to
consider. Any action was tabled to the January meeting when the new
board will be seated.
Frank gave a brief report on the Nominating Committee activities. He said there may be as many as four new faces on the next board and says the committee has every intention of providing a courtesy copy of the slate before it is published to the membership.
updated us on the situation between EAA's B-17 operation and King
County Airport. It seems to be at a standstill while Doug awaits
further input from George Daubner.
reported on the scholarship committee actions and mentioned that
there is a plan to expand awards to include some A&P school
benefits. The committee will also look into the advisability of
expanding the program to include private pilot training and
increasing the age limit of winners beyond the current 21.
discussing the winter aviation events, the question was raised
whether we send a rep to NWCAS. It was the consensus that this was
unnecessary, especially in light of our new emphasis on growing our
satisfaction from within the group, rather than going outside.
reminded the department heads that if they wanted money in the 2012
budget, they had to get the info submitted NLT 31 December.
being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 3:10 PM.
