Meeting Called to Order:

President Rob Tidrow called the meeting to order at 12:00 p.m. in the Richmond Power and Light Board Room.

Old Business:

The November 17, 2011 minutes were reviewed. Richard Peterson made a motion to approve and Dudley Fetzer seconded the motion. It passed unanimously.

New Business:

The balance sheet was reviewed. Jane Holman explained why the employee benefits line item was a little above budget. Two members (one at the $500 level and one at the $300 level) are not renewing for financial reasons. David Burton made a motion to approve and it was seconded by Randy Baker. All were in favor.

Executive Director’s Report (click to see the report):

Jane gave a brief overview of her report. Bill Pendley made a motion to approve and Randy Baker seconded this motion. All approved.

Gary Arndst suggested new content for updating our Application Form. Everyone agreed the final version was Perfect! Gary did a wonderful job in this endeavor.

A "lively" conversation was held as each one shared their trivia suggestions. I think Bill Pendley definitely won for the BEST suggestions!

Jane Holman suggested each of us try to contact one person or company. We will discuss further at our March meeting.

Several ideas were discussed such as an Open House, sponsorship at a Richmond Social Media event, doing something nice for our members such as a "techie" speaker, etc. We will discuss further at our March meeting.


Being no further business Rob Tidrow asked for a motion to adjourn. David Burton moved and Randy Baker seconded the motion. All approved and the meeting was adjourned at 1:05 p.m

Respectfully submitted,

Pam Merchanthouse
