Dues for 2004 were nearly 100 percent after the November follow up mailing. About 30 members so contacted paid their 2005 dues at the same time. J. Bast will prepare a 2005 dues mailing soon. D. Heyer will assist with a letter to be enclosed with the dues notice.
D. Heyer and J. Bast will recruit three FOCL members to serve as a nominating committee to propose a slate of Board members for election at the annual meeting and to propose a nominating committee for next year. D. Heyer has indicated a desire to end his Board service. He will check with Mal Bornemeier to see if she would be willing to serve if nominated. J. Bast will check with S Sargent to determine from the minutes who needs to be elected based on the term expirations this year. (The board was elected to staggered terms when the bylaws were adopted in 2003.)
The annual meeting will be scheduled for late August, preferably on August 27, 2005 (Sat.) or the 28th (Sun.) or a week ealier if necessary. K. Arnold will contact the Kellehers who volunteered to host this year’s meeting. (Subsequent to the meeting, the Kellehers confirmed they would be willing to host the meeting on the 27th at 4pm.) Discussion of a speaker was initiated but not concluded. Inviting a public official who we want to make known of FOCL’s existence and interests is a possibility.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:35am.
