SCCA Solo Meeting
Board Report: Newsletter is getting expensive. Raise dues to compensate or make it smaller or online newsletter. Craig Anderson suggested to produce it bi-monthly.
Bud suggested that it be monthly during that part of the year in which we are doing events then publish is less during the off season time. Mike Leuty suggests maybe skip a month or two.
Bud suggests we check for less costly publishers.
Most agree it is best to change the newsletter rather than raise the dues.

Happy news! Louann Christensen has agreed to be the treasurer for the Solo group. She works for Salish Lodge in the accounting department as manager and also is the IS manager for their network.

Bud described what the assignment entails and believes he spends from 2 to 3 hours per event, which qualifies it for a work assignment. This is a formal motion by Bud, no one opposed So I guess it passed.
