Below are the minutes of the BOD meeting.

Board of Directors Meeting (BOD), Saturday, October 15, 2016
The meeting convened 3:15 pm

The meeting was called to order by President Mike Brown-@Coral Reefer.

Mike thanked everyone for attending the Frag workshop and also thanked @roostertech for hosting the event and providing a great meeting place.

Mike began by reviewing who would and who would no longer be a member of the BOD.

Sponsorship Committee Chair Geneva Wong-@Geneva has stepped down. Member Rolf-@Corralus will take over as the chair. The committee has 3 members who are responsible for contacting our local fish store sponsors. These members will continue in that capacity.

John-@Flagg37 has shown increased interest in the position of President. He does not, however, want to take on the position at this time. Therefore, he will be the designated President in Training.

Bob @Tank Guy has volunteered to become the Vice President. His position is responsible for meetings and he will form a sub-committee to accomplish this task. Steve Patchin-@patchin will be responsible for locations. Our new member, Edgar Sandoval, has volunteered to be in charge of accommodations for future speakers. Other members will be forthcoming.

Mike Ray-@mray2660 and Dave Corkrum-@2manyhobbies will continue as Treasurer and Secretary respectively.

Mike Huynh- @Enderturtle will remain as the Frag Swaps Coordinator. Member Rolf-@Corralus will support him with sponsor donations and outside vendors participating at the swaps.

There was considerable discussion about media specialists and who would take on the responsibility of posting to other website such as FaceBook about upcoming events. Brian Duffy- @DT Prime expressed an interest in this position, although nothing definite was determined.

The photographer and social media chair is still vacant.

The slate of officers for 2017 is as follows:

The slate will be posted on the BAR website and the vote will be taken there. The Secretary will be responsible for the posting and determining the results.

Respectfully Submitted,
