    Anyone here read the BOD meeting minutes in the ON besides me?

    I just got the Jan ON today. Bagged again, Thank You Media Team!

    I was very interested in the BOD minutes. Sometimes there are comments here that seem strange in light of the info available to each member in the ON.

    Wondering if the BOD is doing anything about declining memberships, financial shortfalls, member retention and recruitment?

    I think there is a lot of good news to be found in the minutes.

    I've never been more optimistic about the continued growth of the MOA than I am right now.

    Opportunities abound. The board has direction and focus, the Ex Dir is the right person, in the right position, at the right time.

    Elections are coming up with the change for new input.

    It is an exciting time to be a MOA member.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Reading the BOD minutes is a symptom of feeling like you belong to the organization. If you are simply a casual reader of a magazine, you might not read those "dry" articles about meetings, but once you feel a part of an organization, then you might want to know what is going on inside the group. Hence, you read--or even ATTEND (heaven forbid!)--about the meeting.

    Thx to everyone here on this forum who has helped convert me from a "reader" to a member.

    Awwwww mannnnn

    Now I'm curious, and you shamed me into reading the minutes. In the paraphrased immortal words of Alex from Madagascar, "Darn you moderators, darn you all to heck!"

    So, how did you like the comment of one of the members attending:

    He said (in jest) that he's not sure if it's a meeting or a celebrity roast!
    As they say, there is always a little truth in any joke.

    Just read the funny article and I can't help myself. I noticed Jackie's red F650 has a coexist sticker on the side case. Jackie obviously draws the line at coexisting in close proximity to Ms. mouse. One of the letter icons will have to be modified to include a nose, whiskers, and ears I recon.

    Not arguing and either or proposition. I want both. So the river freezes and they can't get me the print version by canoe, I can read things online until they portage it to me.

    Have only read a few sets of minutes, mostly for my general education about club structure and finances. Didn't read the last ones.
    But will to see if they're different.

    The few I read conveyed to me info about tactical issues and progress/action on current events plus sound fiscal responsibility but I never got a feel for a strategic direction or understood how well the group was doing at meeting it. Maybe that's just a miss from my casual readings or the new structure is producing different results? Management in any structure often has issues communicating its strategic goals and progress- can be tough to get the entire group interested and participating.
