F.   New Business:  (All):

1.  Volunteer Appreciation Dinner (Thursday, June 27, 2019) location – we’ve had it at Amerigo on West End the last 3 years and will continue that venue for 2019

2.   Bruce Jones, Publicity/Communications Chair was missing in action.  Investigation proved Bruce passed away on August 27, 2018, from a heart attack.  He was awarded the Vince Barry Award in 2017 for his outstanding service to our section – published the Paradigm and kept the current membership list.  He will be greatly missed.

3.   Discussion of the new ASQ Section Operating Agreement – concerns arose around the:

a.   ASQ HQ website

      We create our Paradigm from gathering pieces from our “Bondware” (current) website and electronically distribute it to our section membership – it’s a very sleek and almost effortless way to stay in-touch with our membership on a monthly basis – need to be assured the same can be accomplished on the mandated ASQ HQ website

b.   Fund allocation process

      It’s a bit fuzzy on how we receive monies for our various activities (examples:  speaker gift cards, ASQ Gear Membership Meeting give-away items, Membership Meeting server tip, Membership Meeting dinners for 1st time attending members) once we give all of our money to our Regional Director

We will further discuss this Operating Agreement when we know more.
