Business

1st Order of business:

A motion has been raised regarding setting the new membership rates (vote pushed from a previous meeting where it was agreed rates would go up Jan 1st without specifying an amount). The new membership rates being put to a vote are $30/Month or $250/Year. This would go into effect Jan 1st 2016 for all new members or current plank holder members who have let their membership lapse.

NOTE: Previous board votes determined that lifetime memberships can no longer be purchased after 12/31/2015 and that anyone who becomes a member by 12/31/2015 will be considered a plank holder locking in their rates at $20/$200 for as long as they remain a member in good standing. This vote would not change these rules. This vote is to set the new membership fees.

Vote on approving the new membership fees of $30/Month or $250/Year effective 1/1/2016:

  • Vote: 5 in favor, 0 opposed, 0 abstained
  • Resolution: Vote passed
