Final Board meeting minutes 2010
Minutes of the annual meeting of the Evergreen Woodworker’s Guild Board of Directors
Date: July 21, 2010
Board members in attendance: Michael Dresdner, Bill Cogswell, Carol Zandell, George Knutsen, Gordon Patnude.
The meeting was held at 3303 28th St. SE, Puyallup, WA 98374, and was called to order at 7:10 PM.
We have, in the past, had an education chair who oversaw the dispersal of funds to defray the costs of woodworking classes so as to encourage members to take advantage of educational opportunities in our field. However, the board noted that there is no cohesive set of guidelines either for how much money would be spent on this endeavor, nor to which courses would be considered legitimate recipients of this help. The board felt it was important to clarify both the existence of and scope of the duties of that chair.
A motion was made and passed that the president maintain an Education Chair to oversee the dispersal of our education funds. The chair would have jurisdiction to validate reimbursement of educational fees to members for woodworking courses offered by a valid business entity or organization in the Pacific Northwest. The guild will set aside $2500 from the profits of the super raffle to create an education fund. Reimbursement will not exceed $150 per member per year, and will be paid until the yearly fund is exhausted. The dollar amount per person and total amount to be disbursed may be reviewed and adjusted as needed at the end of each fiscal year.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:05 pm.
