Also present was Jim Scheef. Chairman Ed Heere presided, and Secretary Larry Buoy kept the records of the meeting. The minutes of the February board meeting were approved.
Finance & Membership
Treasurer Charles Bovaird reported current combined checking and postal account balances of $10,134.18, postage on hand of $215.52, and accounts receivable of $71 for a total cash position of $10,426.70. Current membership is about 670.
GM Presentation Procedure Change
Chairman Heere commented on aspects of the March 3 general meeting that may have created unwanted impressions upon the many visitors present. He suggested that when presentations are expected to attract a large numbers of visitors, the usual opening segments of those meetings be abbreviated and that presenters be asked to postpone question and answer periods until the end of the presentation. The directors concurred.
Election of Officers
The Board was reminded by Chairman Heere that at its next meeting officers will be elected for the ensuing year. Known candidates for office were reviewed. Also reviewed were prospects for the responsibilities of public relations for DACS.
Adult Ed Web Directory
Jim Scheef announced that preliminary forms and a database had been designed for the on-line adult education directory previously authorized by this Board for linking to its Web page.
Zip for Resource Center
A discussion was opened regarding the advantages of having a zip drive available on the computer installed at the Resource Center, principally for assimilating copy for the newsletter and for transporting work done thereon to other computers. It was unanimously agreed that an internal zip drive be installed.
A true record.
