QCWA Bulletin 2015-011 - May 14, 2015 - QCWA Board Meeting Highlights

The QCWA Board of Directors met at the Best Western Plus Hotel, 20 Rockridge Road, Englewood, OH, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT for their Annual Board meeting.

There were a number of agenda items to be covered in the 4 hour meeting. The Board adopted a Consent Agenda which alleviated the need to discuss each submitted report in detail.

Some highlights of the meeting were;

 1. President Oelke welcomed new members of the Board, Director Carole Perry, WB2MGP and Treasurer Charles Tropp, N2SO. New Director Mark Wintersole, W5NZ was not able to make it because of a bicycle accident he was involved in, and was therefore excused from the meeting. The following guests were also welcomed; QCWA Webmaster Bob Roske, N0UF, FAR Scholarship Chair Dave Prestel, W8AJR, along with a number of other QCWA members who attended the meeting.

 2. All committee, director and officer reports were reviewed and accepted as received.

 3. Approval of Charter for new Vulcan Chapter 227, Birmingham, AL.

 4. Review and acceptance of the year-end 2014 financial statements. (posted on the Members Only Web page.)

 5. Review and acceptance of the 1st Quarter 2015 financial report.

 6. Review and approval of the 2015 budget.

 7. Approve the revised Director Policy Manual & New QCWA Historical Manual. (both to be posted on the Members Only Web page.)

 8. Adopt Bylaw revisions to Article III, Section 3, Article VI, Section 2 and Article VIII, Section 2. (to be posted on the Members Only Web page.)

 9. Approve to pursue copyright or trademark as appropriate of QCWA, QCWA, Inc. and the QCWA logo.  

10. Approve to pursue the seating of a standing Ethics Committee. The exact structure of this committee will be determined by the Administration & Finance committee, and a full report returned to the Board for further action.

Once approved by the Board, a full report of the meeting will be provided in the meeting minutes and further posted on the Members Only Web page.
