The club welcomed two new members, though one or two dropped, who Zane Harrington plans to reach out to.
Steve Smith said there are several items to follow-up with, including removing the P.O. Box from the website.
Paul Wahlstrom said the club finances, compared to last year, are down because of events.
Barry Hoffman moved to approve the latest financial report, Arnold Wayne Jones seconded.
Paul Wahlstrom said the scholarships deadline is May 1, so it needs to be promoted.
Zane Harrington is sending an updated press release about Legends and Steve Smith is getting Martha Tiller a photo. Zane Harrington said he’s also compiling Legends headshots and bios and will be pitching to media soon. Paul Wahlstrom said he’s waiting to hear back about insurance for the event.
Paul Wahlstrom said he, Barry Hoffman and Hugh Aynesworth have been working on sponsorships and trying to revamp.
Dedie Leahy presented them with a proposal to consult on sponsorships. Given the nature of the proposal and the cost, the board agreed it was best not to act on it at this time.
Barry Hoffman made a motion to decline contract at this time and Arnold Wayne Jones seconded.
Due to financial constraints and scheduling, Paul Wahlstrom recommended putting the Aynesworth Awards on hold and possibly picking it back up next year, which could allow the board to switch the timing with that of the Legends, as previously discussed. The board reached a consensus to put the event on hold for this fall.
