Club Contests will be held over the next two weeks, and we called for volunteers to compete.

  • Evaluation Contest – 7/26 – Contestants are Cynthia, Aimee, Ben, Andy and Peter if he is there.
  • Humorous Contest – 8/2 Contestants – Greg

Dues Increase – TI is increasing the 6 month dues from $36 to $45 starting October 1.  The board recommended that we change the club dues from $3 per month to $2.50 a month which changes to total cost to members from $54/6 months to $60 /6 months.  Jeanine moved and Andy seconded to accept the Board’s recommendation and it passed unanimously.

Proposal B – This proposal makes the International Audit Committee a standing committee.  The motion was made to instruct our Proxy holder to vote for it.  It was seconded and passed.

Proposal A – This proposal removes the requirement for TI to have their physical location in California from the By-Laws. The motion was made to instruct our Proxy holder to vote for it.  It was seconded and passed.

Fall District Conference

Next week 4 Club Outspoken members will travel to the Bahamas to attend the bi-annual District 47 conference.  This provides us the opportunity to attend educational workshops, hone our skills as evaluators as we compare our notes against the District evaluation winners and listen to our District Humorous contest winners.

This promises to be an entertaining weekend for everyone.
