LAST MONTH’S MINUTES for the Board of Directors Meeting on June 13, 2010, were reviewed with no issues, but not voted on.

MEMBERSHIP: No new members. With renewals, the total membership is 154 people.

HOSPITALITY: Thanks to Anthony and Vicki Ortiz for helping out with this function!

The August PROGRAM will be a presentation by guest speaker Brian Kemble on the subject of Echeverias.

LIBRARY: There has been a steady stream of interest from our new members. Linda indicates that most of the books she brings get checked out.

AFFILIATE: The 46th annual CSSA show will be in San Diego on April 24-29, 2011. We may look into having a group trip there if enough interest.

MINI SHOW: Kathi is revising the logistics, and will be setting per person limits; looked at will be the number of categories and number of votes. She would like to have this activity run as a committee and if anyone is interested in participating, please contact her. She is looking for new ideas and suggestions for next year, and will be running a survey in next month’s courier.

SPRING SHOW: Bill Gingras has volunteered to be our new Show and Sale chair, and will act as the umbrella that oversees all aspects of the show part of the event and the vendor part. He will be looking for dynamic people to assist him with this. Roger has volunteered to review and update our vendor letter. There is some ambiguity about the number of show plants and volunteer time that is required for plant and pottery vendors.

FALL SHOW: Oct. 3 & 4 at Buchser School. Bill K. has reserved the space. The Fall show is People’s Choice.

BY-LAWS: Sonia presented two new processes for review. We need to determine where within our website the By-Laws should reside.

      -   Process #3, Reserving Space for the Club’s Show and Sale



The meeting was adjourned at 12:15 P.M.
