GOVERNOR’S REPORT: Pete reported we have 44 CVCC Members plus 2 with dues outstanding from 2017. DUES ARE DUE!!! Pay Pete Klug $25/member (includes spouse/significant other).
Per our previous discussion, action was taken to eliminate the Governor’s position as required by our By-Laws and the following Amendment to our By-Laws was proposed by Pat Snyder:
“Whereas the Chippewa Valley Corvette Club (CVCC) has decided to terminate its relationship with the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC), the officer position of “Governor” is no longer necessary. This amendment removes the position of Governor, and replaces it with the new Officer position of Membership/Dues Officer. The Duties of the Membership/Dues Officer shall be:
1). To have membership forms on hand to sign up new members.
2). To maintain an accurate list of current members and their contact
3). To collect the annual club membership dues.
Motion by Lewis Harrison/Jerry Salow to accept this Amendment: CARRIED
