The Secretary read the minutes for the November 17, 2013 meeting. The minutes were accepted, as read.
The Secretary reported that $246.48 were transferred from the Society's PayPal account into the checking account.
As of the meeting the Secretary reported that there are 549 members.
The Secretary reported that there is still a problem with the PayPal account wherein he is no longer receiving email notification of any activity. He has to manually enter the PayPal account to ascertain if any transactions have been processed. The Webmaster indicated that he thought this issue was corrected, since he did not receive any further emailing on the matter. Apparently, there was a mis-communication and the webmaster will look further into the matter.
The Secretary reported that we have sufficient supplies of items on sale on the website store.
The Treasurer reported that currently there is $10,177.76 in the Society's bank account with no outstanding receipts to pay.
The President gave a report of his recent conversation with the GGNRA. He stated that the GGNRA holds the Society in high regards yet requested that the Society does not inform them of current issues with SF-88. They are aware of deficiencies yet feel uncomfortable of being reminded of them. They further would appreciate if the Society not contact them on any issues and would prefer that they hold the option of contact initiation.
Members voted on granting the GGNRA's request and further agreed that no further contact would be made, in any way, with the GGNRA unless a full agreement is first obtained from the officers. No further pursuit of wayside signs will be made, as well as, any monetary donations.
A question was raised over the new Air Defense Museum at Fort Sill and whether or not they are aware of the Society. The Secretary responded that contact was already made with the museum and an offer of assistance, if needed, was conveyed to them.
It was agreed that an email inquiry would be sent out to the membership to ascertain whether or not there is any interest in holding a 2015 reunion in the Bay Area.
Initial discussion was held on a "members only" picnic for either June or July. Discussion was held on holding it in an area where a guarantee of good weather was assured. R. Parshall and J. Nurisio volunteered to take on the task.
The meeting was adjourned at 14:10.
The next meeting will be held on April 6, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. in South San Francisco
