Minutes of General Membership Meeting
July 15, 2010
Meeting was held at Susan and Steven Casaleggio’s home in Jacksonville, Oregon.
The meeting was called to order by Penelope Dews, President, at 6:15PM.
New members were welcomed
Cheryl Kempner discussed points/membership corrections and answered questions.
Board Positions - Ballot missed July Newsletter, therefore, ballot was handed out at this general meeting. As only one person was running for each position, it was moved and seconded to pass the ballot as presented by a unanimous vote. All present voted in favor of those running on the ballot. Bonnie Morgan stepped down as Member-at-Large and Kazuko Young was voted in. All other Board positions remained the same as 2009.
Clarification of Clayfolk positions – 3 types
Show Chair Trainee needed as well as Chairs for Group Booth and Signs. For clarification, contact Penelope Dews.
Clarification of “Terms” : Terms were created to allow all members a chance to volunteer. General Membership Positions have 2-3 year terms. Some people are afraid if they take on a position they have to keep it till someone replaces them. We appreciate members that volunteer- If you’d like to volunteer for a position but only want to do the term limit or do not want to do the full term – that’s OK, just let the board know. If there is a position you might be interested in- now or in the future – please talk to the person currently holding that position to find out more about it.
Update on General membership positions:
A request was made for the membership to receive newsletters electronically if at all possible. Clayfolk spends approximately $500 on postage and electronic newsletter will cut that cost.
Gwen Child handed out pocket sized Show flyers. This is a great idea as they can be given out to anyone who expresses interest in the Show and customers at other shows. The card sized flyers are in packets of 100.
Program : Phil Fishwick demonstrated how to set up and use the Photo Cube. Ray Foster assisted.
Meeting was adjourned at 8:00PM.
Minutes respectfully submitted by Shirley Huft, acting for Secretary Lynita Zajack.
