New Business

The secretary has completed all the pending PayPal requests/merchandise orders.  Judy submitted receipts for expenses and was paid at the meeting for $156.43.  Ron Jacobs also submitted a receipt for $11.95 and was paid at this meeting.

Election of officers.  Call for election of officers was conducted on 1/10/15 as required by our by-laws.  The officers are:

President:  Al Kellogg

Treasurer:  Ron Parshall

Secretary:  Judy Kellogg

Directors:  Elizabeth Parshall, Linda Stoppoloni

Al Kellogg made a proposal that we also name Ron Jacobs to the position of “Webmaster Director”.  Per Robert’s Rules of Order in Chapter XV 46, Officers, the minimum of Officers would be the President (chair) and Secretary, along with additional Officers such as Treasurer.  Under the sub heading of “Other Officers”, Directors, (or trustees, or managers) who sit as members of the executive board (48) usually in addition to the other Officers and perform such duties as the bylaws may require.

Webmaster report

Ron Jacobs requested funds for “Dreamweaver” subscription.  He will check into pricing.  He has been authorized to purchase a year’s subscription and will present us with a usage invoice for payment.  He may order it monthly or yearly depending on pricing.

There was a suggestion that we post pictures/stories from Nike veterans on our website.  For example Harold Stanford sent pictures of sites from a helicopter in the Bay Area.  These stories may be of interest to other veterans and would only be used with the sender’s permission.

All comments on our website have been positive and we want to keep it that way.  Negative remarks will not be posted.

Ron J. also suggested that under “about” on our web page we have the officers contact/email information as well as pictures if they so desire. 

Other business:

Ron Parshall was going to check into the doors from SF93 and hasn’t had a chance to yet.  That will be postponed until he can make a trip there.  Ron Jacobs will also try to make a trip out there too.

We received $50 from the GGNRA for postcards that Al Kellogg delivered to them.

The Secretary, Judy Kellogg, has some concerns regarding the framed pictures in our website store, one of which shows the Oozlefinch in the upper right hand corner.  We don’t have that picture as shown so the Oozlefinch should be removed.  They are also costing more to frame and mail than we can sell them for at a reasonable price.  So we voted to remove the framed picture from the website.  Judy also needs to know where we order decals that are available in our store so we won’t run out of them.   Ron Parshall will get her that information.

No other business to discuss.

Next meeting:  May 17, 2015 10:00 AM in Alameda, CA

Meeting adjourned at 14:30
