Secretary’s Column – December 2017

Clearing off my desk I find that there are a few items of importance that will require some action by the Club before the end of the year. There are elections coming in January at the Annual General Meeting and Holiday Party to be held on January 6th. The nominating committee has announced a slate of officers and chairs to be voted on at the upcoming January meeting. Members of the nominating committee are:

John Harris, Chair
David Moyer
Trudy Williamson

They have placed in nomination the following members for the positions indicated.

Ron Carmichael – President

Rick Judson – Vice President

Tom Pane – Secretary

Mary Sue Wahl – Treasurer

Paul Reinmann – Activities Chair

Trudy Williamson – Membership Chair

Ken Badoian – Ragtop Tales Chair (editor). This is a new position formerly under the Secretary.

Other nominations for the above positions may be submitted to the nominating committee on or before the Annual General Meeting.

Members attending the Annual General Meeting will also vote on changes to the Club By-laws. Those proposed changes are as shown in the November issue of the RTT under the minutes of the Quarterly General Meeting held in October.

“The President has proposed that term limits be examined for members of The Board. This would require a change in the By-Laws. Tom Pane recommend that term limits also apply to all Committee Chairs, i.e. Activities Committee Chair and Membership Chair. Ken’s proposal is to have two year terms with the option of an additional one or two year extension. The position of President and Secretary would not be voted on in the same year. This would also apply to the Vice President and Treasurer. “

An Executive Committee meeting to formalize the changes in the By-laws was first proposed for November, but now will be held at a time and date in December yet to be confirmed.

The other change in the By-laws concerns the new chair position for the RTT newsletter editor. Currently the RTT editor position falls under the duties and responsibilities of the Secretary.

Highland Games

After parking we boarded a shuttle to the grounds of the John Blue House where the games were in full swing. The opening…
