III. ALL ALUMNI SOCIAL
Jerry reported the Social brought in ~ $4,000. He has the FOP on hold for Homecoming 10/4/19, but has not put a deposit down yet. The plan is for the Social to remain on Friday evening Homecoming weekend for this year. Don gave Jerry check for $10.00 for the soda not sold at the social.
- LEADERSHIP TRANSITION/TIMING/MEMBERSHIP
General agreement that the current Board will remain in place until the May meeting. This will give the four (4) newest attendees (Conn, Bauer, Sullivan and Krause) time to observe how the FHSAA functions. The Board members will each write a “job” description and time commitment for their role. This should help in the decision of which position the new member would like to assume. We will also provide details of duties for the Scholarship Committee and different duties for the Homecoming Social. As new Board they have the flexibility of redefining how they would like to lead – perhaps revamping the Social.
- GOOD OF THE ORDER
Scott stated that since we are continuing, we must do a retro audit for May ’17 through April ’18.
Jerry will draft a new letter to replace the letter sent to the membership that stated our intention to go dormant.
Don Bond will transfer FHSAA boxes of decorations, signs, etc. to Andy Conn.
Jerry will coordinate with Ann Swigart for the luncheon for the Senior officers (January target). A.J. will supply the Lifetime Membership cards and certificates.
Jerry suggested we offer the $20 Lifetime Membership from now until the end of the year. Offer to be posted on website and Facebook.
Motion to approve offer: Andy Conn
Second: Scott Fowler
