Board Meeting Notes – January 2022

Chapter Board Meeting January 18th, 2022
The Chapter Board and Officers met via Zoom last evening, our first session for the new year. The detailed notes of the meetings are – as always – posted to the Chapter web site here

The highlights and summary are as follows:

– President is to recommend some bye-law changes to better address our Chapter operations, and to introduce a fifth Board position to help in decisioning and Board engagement. Voting by membership is required to adopt such changes.

– Board Meetings will be open to membership

– 2022 will see additional focus in two specific areas; youth engagement in aviation, and membership workshops

– We’ll continue our Saturday morning meeting and event schedules while the weather remains challenging

– We’re moving to Natural Gas at the Chapter hangar (cost saving, efficiency), work will be completed in time for our Pancake Breakfasts, in early spring

– We’re planning two fly-outs per month, starting March. One local, one more distant, with new destinations.

– Pancake Breakfast fund-raising events and Young Eagle flights are scheduled and dates can be viewed at the Chapter Events Calendar 

– Chapter financials are below desired level, following two years without major fund-raising. The Board continues to tightly manage expenses and operating costs. Membership renewals – normally 50%+ of our regular income – are occurring at a medium pace at present, and are critical for funding planned Chapter activities. Renew here.
