1. The meeting was called to order at 10:08 via telephone conference call.
2. The minutes from the June 16, 2010 Business meeting were approved with revisions. Fran will send out revised minutes and ask Jessica to post them to the MichALL website.
3. Report from President--Janet Ann Hedin
Janet reported that she is chairing the 2010/2011 MichALL Nomination Committee and
Currently Janet has received 9 membership registration forms with dues. She is still awaiting Cooley & MSU’s member forms as those are usually sent as a group. MichALL member registration announcements were sent to the MichALL member list as well as the MichALL listserv.
Janet asked the Board how we should handle registration for people who
joined MichALL in April to go to CALL; should their registration cover
2010/2011? The Board decided that, yes, those that registered in April
will be covered for the 2010/2011 year. They do no need to renew their
B. Treasurer’s Report (Update)
Janet noted that Anne Hudson sent the Treasurer’s report to Kineret to
give the report. Since Kineret was late to the meeting, Janet reported that all invoices for the CALL meeting have been paid, along with the $700 to subsidize MichALL members who attended the CALL meeting.
C. Chapter Training
Janet stated that
Since MichALL doesn’t have letterhead, Janet asked the Board to
consider purchasing letterhead stationary with our logo on it. Everyone
on the Executive Board could use it. She also noted that we should
consider purchasing a receipt book with the same letterhead/logo. We
could then give receipt to members for membership dues, and for those
who pay cash to attend MichALL events. All Board members were in
agreement on this proposal.
E. Membership Renewals
There was some discussion about the MichALL membership list on the MichALL website. Amy checked and there is access to the membership list on the website. It includes names and email addresses. Fran and Janet will work on updating the online membership list so that it is current.
Janet noted that AALL insurance dues need to be in on October 1, 2010. So membership records need to be as complete as possible by then.
