Present were Rob Leach, Barbara Bradley, Tom Bradley, Hans Geier, Helen McLean, Mary Christiansen, Sharon Alden, and Lela Ryterski.
A) BANKING: Since Dave’s passing, we need to assign three check signers. Mary made the motion to have the President, Secretary and Treasurer be signers. The motion was passed unanimously.
The Interim Board Members are as follows:
- Rob Leach, President
Hans Geier, Vice-President
Lela Ryterski, Secretary
Sharon Alden, Treasurer
We also need to obtain Dave’s death certificate for the bank (Wells Fargo). Lela will contact Dave’s son, Philos Whitesky, for the death certificate.
B) BYLAWS: We passed around copies of the original bylaws Dave had made up. We went over the bylaws as a group and made changes. The question was whether to offer stock shares or not. According to the Articles of Incorporation, we will not offer shares. We have decided to charge a one-time membership fee. The specifics of a family membership are not clear yet, nor the amounts of either membership category. Rob will bring an updated copy to the next meeting for further consideration.
C) WORKING MONEY: Barb and Tom are putting together the booth for the Health Fair. We have decided on a logo which will go on the banner and new brochures. These can be used for future booths. We authorized money to be spent for these items. Rob gave Barb $300 for working capital. When we obtain access to the co-op account, he will be reimbursed.
D) OUR NEXT MEETING will be next Thursday, April 16th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Foodland site.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:40 p.m.
