  • Management:

      • Can’t hold 2 consecutive years at the same position.
      • Incentives can’t vote?  All of the permanent positions should be able to vote.
      • Our elections take a long time, so we can pare it down to where National is & they want to change the numbers so it is easier to reach quorum.

      • Rename the Community Development/Outreach Coordinator to the Outreach Director

  • Membership:
    • Membership Survey Results
      • Overall most people are very excited about having a very efficient way of communication… Zoom is the favorite platform.
      • Most people also said (41 people took the survey) they would like a text reminder about the meetings & due-dates.
      • People want to be developed in: computers, business, mentorship, leadership, communication increases, encouraging members to participate, time management, alumni, diversity, public speaking, job seeking, project management.
      • Access to the website needs to happen.
      • Last year communication was a blur.  We did navigate uncertainty and had good game nights though.

      • Why aren’t they attending the meetings: distance, life has been a struggle, I forget, it is too cliquey, job, don’t use Facebook, transportation, raising a child.

11: Creed

We believe:

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality; and

That service to humanity is the best work of life.
