October 2015 Board Meeting minutes
Minutes of the October 7, 2015 Board Meeting
Meeting called to order at 6:00 pm by President Jon Lepper
Members present: Jon Lepper, Lynn Nordhagen, Jan Tenold, Steve Shining, Barbara Murray, Tim Bailey, Randy House, Dennis Isip
Members absent: Don Burnell, Tim Lesser, Dora Davis
Minutes of the September board meeting were read by Jan Tenold and approved as read.
The treasurer’s report was given by Lynn Nordhagen in Tim’s absence: $2287 in checking, $75 in savings. The treasurer’s report was approved.
1. Nametags: Jon reported that Dorothy Detlor and Carol Clark have volunteered to manage nametags at meetings and greet visitors this year. Thanks gals!
2. Roster maintenance: Jon reminded us that members who have not paid their dues for 2015-2016 will be deleted from the membership roster in November. However, the names of a few members who are temporarily inactive will be retained.
3. Membership manual: Lynn has been working on this and will get it to David Sams for printing. It will be ready for handout at the next meeting.

1. 4C’s auction: Our club has supported the 4C’s auction in the past with a donation of Amazon gift certificates. Jan moved that Randy buy two $25 Amazon gift cards, the cost of which will be reimbursed by the club, and that he deliver them to the 4C’s auction on the weekend of Oct 10 & 11. Motion carried.
2. 4C’s breakfast: Barb moved that Randy represent our club at the 4C’s breakfast to be held during the upcoming conference. Motion carried.
3. Christmas Potluck: The club annual potluck will be held on Dec 9th from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Several members of the board will scout out locations for the event. For the program, Randy has volunteered to produce a video on the life of one of our long-time members, Sister Madonna Buder.
4. Walkie-talkies: Barb would like to have a set of two walkie-talkies for field trips – one for the lead car and one for the back car. Jon will ask for donations at the meeting tonight.
5. Limiting print submissions: Several members have suggested that we limit print submissions to 2 per person on print night instead of the current limit of 4 per person.
Some of the arguments in favor of limiting prints are: a) We might have enough time on print night to present an education segment rather than needing to have a separate education night on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, b) Prints are expensive to produce, c) Members end up with stacks of prints lying around the house, d) It is time consuming for members to produce prints.
Some of the arguments supporting the current policy of 4 prints per person are: a) Prints are an important visual part of salon at the end of the year, b) Printing and matting are important skills to learn.
6. IPTC data: Dennis has suggested that members attach IPTC data (including the maker’s name and the photo’s name) to their photo files when uploading them for judging. This would make it easier for Dennis to project the photos with the correct information on the digital display both at meetings and at salon. This subject will be addressed at a future board meeting. Members would need training in what the IPTC protocol is and how to do it.

Meeting adjourned at 6:55 pm.
