Are there any plans for a Fall meeting for elections and whatnot? Last year's meeting/elections were held in Minneapolis on the 20th of October (see here).

Shouldn't the board members be actively planning this one so that people have an adequate chance to mark their calendars and attend?

No.

So, there have been 39 views and no replies... Is anyone on the board taking it upon themselves to set this up or should someone else?

Yes, all of them according to the meeting minutes posted for 12/11/02 (see here)

1. Elections
The MnGCA will be led by a board of 9 people, with 2 co-chairs selected by the board from among themselves. In order to be elected, a board member must be nominated, accept that nomination, and be at least 18 years old. They will serve for a 1-year term, but half of them will step down after 6 months so that half of the positions will be up for re-election every 6 months. 9 people were nominated to serve on the board, so it was decided that there would be 9 positions rather than holding elections this time. The board members are:


(list of board members here deleted for space)

Kleiner suggested that half the board members be from the metro area and half from out-state Minnesota, but since we hadnít been able to contact many of the out-state cachers and 8 out of the 9 nominations were for metro area people, we decided to try to recruit more out-state cachers into the organization and in the next elections in 6 months we may have more out-state nominees.

When are we going to elect the new board?

I suggest making the board smaller as well.

Could come up with a complete set of bylaws available to the membership and everything!

I asked Centris for these quite some time ago and she said that while she had a copy "somewhere" that I should try to contact (I believe she said) Bobhiker. An email sent to Bobhiker's email address that was available through the Three Rivers information on the site was ignored.

Why isn't this information available on the website to the members?

Any progress being made on the scheduleing of the event? Should someone else contact Midwest Mountaineering and see if they have an available opening? Would that be a good place to have the meeting as it's about as centrally located as we can get?

Would someone on the board please at least get in touch with me if they will sponsor the call for a meeting. I will be more than happy to do all the setup work but I do not have the authority to call the meeting.

I'm not interested in being on the board, and due to work and the meeting times haven't attended many, but I agree that there should be some regularity involved.

As Secretary, I think we should figure this out. I haven't been as active as I should, but at the first meeting I attended, I became secretary. Surprised on that note.... what days work for everyone? I think REI down by the U works well for everyone. We just need to pick a day. Does anyone have any comments? Being unemployed, any day works for me... Cool
