News From the BOD

Recommended Posts

Many members want to know what the BOD is doing. The usual method to do that is to wade through the minutes, and try and make some sense of that. As Secretary, I am starting this thread as a means to provide quicker understanding of what is going on. It is my hope we can keep this as an informational thread. That said, the first thing New President John Steed has done is to put together an SOP / Bylaws committee to look at those, and make any necessary changes to bring us up to date. We will examine the way the Club presently operates to make any changes that will improve the Club going forward.. That committee will be composed of President John, Mike Book and myself. Some of the first things we will look at are SOPs and Bylaws that must be changed to accommodate suggestions provided by the auditors, that. the BCA hired to look at our financial operations. On a personal note Since becoming Secretary last year, I have had to go through those By laws and SOPs many tomes, and I am very impressed by how good a job the original authors did in creating them. For the most part , they still work very well. A lot of thought went in to them.

This thread should be locked and used to provide BOD information only.  Otherwise we all know where this is headed.

If I have to do that  I will, I am hoping that we can keep it open for  relevant questions. If that is not the case, I will have Peter lock it.

@Jack Welch Has the BOD brought up the longevity of this particular committee?  Since the BOD changes a bit each year, without some lay persons involved it would seem that review of the organizational rules could be subject to wide swings of experience, and desires, without much history to fall back on.  I am suggesting that this ought to be a standing committee with it's own SOP for set up and guidance, with at least one BOD member and whatever other number of members needed, to facilitate recommendations for adjustments to the SOP, Rules and Regulations and the By-Laws, for the BOD.  It would still be up to the BOD to accept or reject any recommendations.  And since the Judging manual is also considered a part of the governing documents there should be at least one member of the NMC on this committee.  

 

Just my opinion.

John : Good thought, that could be an SOP change in it's own right. The committees, that this BOD will be setting up will not all be composed of BOD members, so that makes a lot of sense.

At the BOD meeting last evening Kevin Kinney was appointed to replace John Steed as BCA Chief Judge. Roberta Vasilow was appointed Chapter, Region and Director CoOrdinator . Both appointments will be for a five year period as per the BCA ByLaws. The changes proposed  by the SOP committee were approved with modifications as presented , and will be posted in a future Bugle for the membership to comment on , before being implemented. A Finance committee was created by President John Steed with Bill Stoneberg as Chair and Sydney Meyer and Jerry Courson as members. A Membership growth Committee was established by President Steed with Alan Oldfield as Chair. Members will be approved for this committee going forward. Several names have been put forth. A six month budget was approved so that the BCA can switch from a July 1 fiscal year beginning to a Jan 1 beginning. The paper work to accomplish this has been provided to our accounting firm. More detail on the BOD will be provided on the BOD meeting in upcoming minutes.

An item from the BOD that was not previously published until the Chapter Director was officially informed is that the BOD approved a new Chapter . This Chapter will be known as the Gateway Performance Chapter. The existing Gateway Chapter was informed prior to acceptance and welcomes having another Chapter in its Geographical area. We welcome this Chapter, and the BOD is excited that some new BCA members will come aboard as a result .
