Review of Minutes- Charlotte
Minutes are approved unanimously.
Agenda is approved
Discussion of Robert’s Rules of Order
As a change from last year, abstentions won’t be considered as a nay
vote in the passing of a motion. Instead a simple vote of yays versus nays will suffice.
There will be a Mini-retreat for 3-4 hours somewhere in Madison
Brad wants to see more communication to the club. Also wants to bring new people in to volunteer.
Hoofer Sailing Shop
Jake discussed Hoofer Sailing Shop Procedures
The shop needs volunteers.
Keelboat cart and Keelboat mending.
Jake wants more freshmen to work in the shop; could possibly pay them more.
Anyone who wants to volunteer in the shop should send Jake an email.
Outdoor Program Office and ProCards
Claire describes what the OPO is: Outdoor program office.
ProCards are what you use to spend your budget.
Need to fill out a ProCard agreement beforehand.
1 business day to get ProCard back to the office.
Complete an itemized receipt.
New probation procedure, entire club will be prohibited from using card until all forms are in.
Micah is spearheading this.
Specific goal: To find out if members think the club is running well?
Send emails to Micah about survey at hooferssailing.org
Brad wants the actual committee to meet in next two weeks.
Selling the E Scow
A man wants to buy two of our E Scow hauls.
He’s willing to pay $500 for each of them. He doesn’t care which ones.
Michelle recommends that we sell them.
Brad wants to contact him and see what he’s looking for.
Write “take as is” on advertisement.
Michelle thinks we should make an offer because we have E Scows we don’t need.
Motion (by Justin): I motion to authorize Michelle to investigate
condition of the E Scow hauls consultation from the head of
shop and, if deemed appropriate, sell two E Scow hauls for 500 dollars each.
Michelle: I second it
Brad moved to vote
9 yay, 0 opposed, 2 abstained
We will do a speakers list from now on.
Discussion of whether people joining multiple clubs should receive discounts.
Discussion of whether large groups of people signing up together should receive
If giving a group discount, group number should be large, around 6 or 8.
A nominal discount probably won’t add up.
Could possibly give service enticement like free lessons instead of a monetary discount.
Possible dorm discounts. Both the dorms and the clubs could chip in.
We could do discounts for employees for specific businesses.
We could add a question about incentives to the survey.
Possible 10% discount for people signing up for all 6 clubs.
Free memberships extended to non-voting members.
Motion (by Justin): I move to approve Brad’s recommendation on free
memberships and offer them a free annual membership or extend their
membership for one year.
Erica: I second that.
9 yays, 0 nays, 2 obtaining
Erica: I motion to offer a free academic year membership at the hoofer sailing
