LAST MONTH’S MINUTES for the Board of Directors Meeting on May 3, 2009, were approved.

TREASURER: The balance as of June 7, 2009 is $22,826. Roger is re-reviewing this figure, as this is a significant increase from last month.

MEMBERSHIP: With renewals, the total membership is now 97 people.

HOSPITALITY: Nothing new to report.

The July PROGRAM will be a program on plant rejuvenation, presented by a long-standing member of our club, Naomi Bloss. She will also be sharing tips on propagation methods.

LIBRARY: It was brought up that we need to include an e-link in our courier directing people to our library list of book titles.

AFFILIATE: Linda has stepped in as our club affiliate until a new person assumes this role. She has contacted the CSSA for general information on contacts and services. Linda has also reached out to other N. Californian club affiliates for general info on what their responsibilities are. Should there be a term limit for this position?

MINI SHOW: Kathi will be heading up this activity going forward. Thanks, Kathi!!

SPRING SHOW: A motion was proposed and approved to make a donation to Buchser School for the use of their facility of 10% from our net from the April show and sale.

FALL SHOW: Oct. 3 & 4 at Buchser School. Bill K. has reserved the space.

BY-LAWS: Sonia has volunteered to spearhead the updating of our Operating Procedures and our By-Laws.
  • Sonia submitted a well thought out report on “Lessons Learned” from the Spring Show and Sale this last April. There are many points that can be incorporated into our By-Laws.
  • In discussion of our club’s position on “good-will” donations, there needs to be language and limit descriptions around this process to ensure being fair to all members of our club.
  • A question was raised as to where the By-Laws reside, as they are not on our club’s web-page.
  • A $5 show bucks reward was suggested for those receiving e-couriers, although it has not been determined yet just how the member will receive the reward. – Our newsletter editor, Rich Kroll, and Linda have been implementing the conversion to electronic format very well.
  • A motion was proposed and approved to make a $100 donation in honor of Carole Keeton’s memory to a charity of her husband, Sam’s, choice.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:55 A.M.

The next meeting will be on July 12, 2009, at the Prusch Park Meeting Hall at 10:30 A.M.
