October Minutes

Baltibrew General Meeting

October 18, 2018 @ Jon’s House

  • Bylaw Revisions Update

    • Jon presented a list of several bylaw changes addressing the following areas:
      • Officer Reductions
      • Election Procedural Changes and Timeframes
      • Quorum Requirements
    • Greg requested that the language surrounding the club’s guild dues payment be modified so that the money comes directly from the club account.
    • Jon presented a proposal to liquidate the club inventory due to lack of use and interest in maintaining it. The jockey boxes would default to Nepenthe as they put in the vast majority of time, labor, and maintenance costs for the upkeep of the boxes. Other items would be offered to club members.
    • The specific language for the amendments presented at the meeting will be circulated to the membership and 2 votes will be held on the website for the charter changes and liquidation.
  • Tasting Panels

    • This will be the last year Jon will coordinate the tasting panels.
    • The club may seek to continue doing pallet training as part of club events or education topics in the future.
    • Following up on the previous motion/vote, the club reimbursed Jon $240 for the cost incurred in coordinating the event.
  • Club Calendar

    • We expect planning to take place in November to map out club activities for 2019.
