LAST MONTH’S MINUTES for the Board of Directors Meeting on January 9, 2005 were approved.
TREASURER: Nothing new to report. The balance as of November 30, 2004 is $5,390. After all the Christmas Party expenses, we had a profit of $395 from the plant auction. Membership in the Garden Club of California, and the club’s liability insurance has been paid.
MEMBERSHIP: There are a total of 74 new and returning members.
HOSPITALITY: We are looking for someone to take over this area of responsibility. Bill Kurtz has graciously offered to help out with this until someone steps up and takes it over.
The March PROGRAM will be a talk and slide-show presentation by Mark Muradian about his trip to Chile. He will also sell his own hand-made pottery.
AFFILIATE: To help encourage attendance at the CSSA convention that is to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, this August 5-10, a motion was proposed and approved to reimburse our members $25 for their traveling expenses.
ANNUAL SHOW: This year, the Show and Sale will be held April 2 & 3 at Buchser School. Don Cravalho, who has been the advertising director for our annual Show and Sale for a number of years, has resigned his post. Chuck Breese has volunteered to take over coordinating this function. Thank you, Chuck! He will need to focus on local advertising, such as the San Jose Mercury News, and distributing fliers to local venues. Paul and Retha Long have always run the cash register for the show and sale, but since they have moved out of the area, we may need to recruit someone new to do this. Bill Kurtz had the small flyers and the $1 off coupons made.
BY-LAWS: Nothing new to report.
NEW BUSINESS: Rowena and Wes have started a new business selling pottery. Their business name is “Our Pots”. We wish them an abounding success!
- There was discussion on what reimbursement to pay for traveling expenses for our Program speakers. To be considered are: what do other clubs pay, flat fee of $75, flat fee plus mileage, pay air fare, pay for their membership, $0.425 a mile, deduct the first 100 miles, keep costs within $150-$200 depending on distance traveled. Bill Kurtz has volunteered to check with other clubs to see how they handle this.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:45 A.M.
The next Board meeting will be on March 6, 2005, at the Prusch Park Meeting Hall at
