NAWCC – CHAPTER 31
Council Meeting Minutes – 17 March 2013
The March Council meeting of Chapter 31 was called to order by President George Matto at The Monarch Hotel in Clackamas, Oregon. Meeting was called to order at 1: 35 PM.
Present: George Matto, Mike King, Kris Freiermuth, Betty Chisum, Stoddard Smith, & Tom Hammond. Absent: Ron Dusek, Terry White & Dick Vigal.
Guests: Paul Drake, Leo Freiermuth, Al Pohlpeter, Mary Martin, Marietta Matto & Bill Butcher.
G. Matto went over the requirements for the Chapter as prescribed by the National.
Mike King passed out & discussed Nomination for Fellow Award form. There is no deadline for sub-mission of the forms. M. King is looking into the Gold Award assuming it does not require support of a National Event.
It was mentioned that John Bailey was in the process of completing a recommendation for a candidate from our Regional at this time. G. Matto suggested John Bailey be asked if he would Chair a committee for this purpose. No action was taken that required a vote. After the Regional the Council will be having another meeting & this can be discussed in more detail at that time.
Mary Daggett has agreed to do publicity for the Regional as reported by Charlie Schubert.
Membership Report: Bob Arnold wasn’t in attendance, but B. Chisum reported we had 17 paid members at this time. Bob Arnold is resigning as Membership Chair as of June for health reasons. B. Chisum volunteered to take it back & do it by hand not the computer. There is some thought John Bailey might take it back, however he won’t be back until April/May; George will talk to him then.
OMSI: G. Matto mentioned OMSI would like to partner with us. We could set up a weekend “Clock Shop” at OMSI for demonstrations involving all we do to restore a clock. The Stenciling presentation Charles Schubert has done so successfully at clock meets at OMSI & many other public events continues to be popular. It would require donations of tools, etc. to make this come together. Everyone agreed it was an excellent idea.
Discussion regarding 2013 Budget. Bill Butcher spoke about the 2013 Budget & how items should be submitted to B. Chisum then to him. These items should contain the cost and the off-set to it giving us a truer budget.
Workshops: Bob Arnold was not in attendance to give a report.
B. Chisum mentioned a request for a donation for the Ohio National. Usually we have sent $50. No action was taken & will be put to a vote at the Chapter meeting following the Regional.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:20 PM for the Mart, and Chapter meeting..
NEXT COUNCIL Meeting: TBA to be held after the May Regional. @ The Beaverton Library
Respectively submitted, Kristen Freiermuth, Secretary
