Lyndee Champion Ivey
|Introductions||Each person introduced themselves so that Virginia could begin to recognize their voices. Virginia introduced herself as a new THB member and Past State President of BPW/NC. Many said that they wanted the branch to continue and believed it served a purpose in the state. Virginia had received no word from Lyndee or Chesney about their participation in the meeting.|
|Short Term Actions
|Seventh Year Assessment
|There was discussion about what needed to be reviewed and what time line needed to be followed for changes to bylaws, policies, etc. Karla confirmed that the bylaws allow for a vote at the annual meeting. Virginia proposed a meeting on January 29 from 7-8:30 p.m. to have Doris Bernlohr and Nancy Shoemaker provide a background on the beginnings of the branch. Subsequent meetings will be scheduled to work on the assessment. Karla agreed to provide links or copies of the bylaws, policies and other pertinent documents to the board members. Other topics to be considered as proposed by Virginia in the call to the meeting were:
|Adjournment||Meeting adjourned at 4:55 p.m.|
More than 20 members of the branch registered for the AAUW NC annual meeting and almost all of them attended the 8:15 am annual meeting of the branch that preceded the state meeting. We also welcomed three new dual members to the branch during the weekend — including Kathryn Braeman, the representative from the AAUW board who flew in for the state meeting.
[Note: On June 4, a new version of the minutes were posted that removed the track changes indications in a paragraph about Elon University.]
After discussion at the previous meeting, three documents were sent to the branch action list for review and comment:
- Branch bylaws with mandatory changes (Feb. 25)
Information on mandatory changes can be found at www.aauw.org. The board was asked to agree that the changes were mandatory or editorial, and so could be submitted to AAUW without a vote of the branch.
- Branch policies with changes including formalizing the discount policy for financial hardship (Mar. 2)
The substantive changes here were discussed on the last board conference call.
- Branch budget for 2013-2014 (Mar. 9)
This will guide branch spending until June 30, 2014. It is our intention to produce a 2014-2015 budget much earlier.
There were no additional issues raised about the documents, and so approval of all three was put to a vote of the branch board. Four of the seven board members voted to approve these documents.
Details of the vote are in the AAUW NC SurveyMonkey account.
The branch board met by conference call on January 29.
Discussion topics included
- A review of the branch policies and a plan to include a financial hardship dues discount for 2014-2015
- A quick discussion on finances and plans to purchase marketing supplies
- A plan to recruit members of a nominating committee who would then recruit candidates for the 2014-2015 board
