SNA Minutes April 14th 2016

Board Meeting was called to order by President Steve Abell.

Board Members present were Kevin Probasco, Garey Vodopich, Nikki Long, Don Hale, Joy Hale, Dick Conoboy, Judy Brightman, Tom Read and Joe Carpenter. Others in attendance were BPD Officer Eric Osterkamp, Carmen Rasmussen, Alysia Noriega, and Janet Simpson.

Alysia from Compass USA gave a presentation on the need for volunteer host families for Chinese students age 13-17 for the period July 7-21. She may be contacted at 425-328-5713

Janet Simpson from Bellingham At Home, a division of the Whatcom Council on Aging, gave a presentation on their new program. This new program is a ‘village of members’ that will coordinate services for those members age 50+ that live at home. Membership fees are $350. Janet may be reached at 746-3462 for more information.

President announcements were that rental inspections will start this summer. SNA will be in the first phase.

Minutes for February and March meetings were approved without any corrections.

Steve presented the Treasurer’s report. We have a current checking balance of $2,158.73.

Discussion was held on splitting the SNA in to two separate areas. We all agreed that there could be both positives and negatives that could make the neighborhood weaker and stronger.

Tom Read was nominated for Treasurer. Joe Carpenter was nominated for Secretary. Steve Abell was nominated as President. Dick Conoboy was nominated as Vice President. All nominations were seconded and all officers were elected by unanimous vote of the Board.

By unanimous vote the following signature authority changes are made to the North Coast Credit Union Account #32118002:
Added to signature authority for the account is Thomas Read.
Steven Abell and Richard Conoboy continue as signature authorities for the same account.

Annual SNA picnic was scheduled for Sunday September 11th between 12-3PM at Lake Padden. We all agreed it would be a good year to bring Salmon back to the Potluck menu and we could afford $150.
