TREASURERíS REPORT:† Treasurer Ayers reported a current bank balance of $47,388.71 and 495 active members.† ††
GENERAL ORDERS:† The Board discussed the fact that no one has volunteered to chair the annual Charity Event.† Options were discussed, from scaling the event down to cancelling it for this year.† A motion was made that for 2008 the STC not conduct a Charity Event due to lack of volunteers, but that the Board will solicit at the end of 2008 for volunteers for a 2009 event.† The motion was carried unanimously.† It was also decided to carry over the balance in the Charity fund to 2009.
†a.† The Board concluded it erred in a previous vote to keep money left over from the Robson Cup in the STC general fund, since the money was held there simply to facilitate bookkeeping and did not in fact belong to the STC.† A motion was made to return the money ($46.48) to Carol Eisenbraun, the 2008 Robson Cup coordinator, to be used for future Robson Cups.† The motion was carried unanimously.†
†b.† The Board reviewed and discussed with the Bylaws Committee various amendments proposed by the Committee in response to recommendations from the Board.† Based on that discussion, the Committee will revise its draft and resubmit to the Board.†
c.†† The Board discussed a recommendation from the Computer Committee Chair to purchase a new updated computer for the Tennis Center for $508 (plus $200 for a new monitor if it is decided one is needed).†† A motion was so made and carried unanimously.
d.†† Director-At-Large Gray proposed that Board members think of ideas for reducing the current dues surplus and share those with each other for discussion at a future meeting/workshop.† All Board members agreed.† In addition, Director-At-Large Gray made a motion to conduct a vote ASAP regarding whether or not dues money should be used to pay for Socials and the annual Club Championship (excluding the New Yearís Eve and Holiday events).† After discussion regarding the timeliness of such a vote, the motion failed to carry, 4-1.
