Free Fun Weekend and Free Admission Days
by: wga_admin
2014-02-25 17:57:59

This may be a few months away but for those of you that are considering making camping reservations for the summer may find this interesting. This may be the perfect time to go looking for one (or more) of the new WGA State Park caches. From the Wisconsin DNR:

 MADISON - Save the dates for Free Fun Weekend, June 7-8, when Wisconsin residents and visitors alike can fish for free, hike or bike state trails for free, ride public ATV trails for free, and, new this year, enjoy free admission to state parks and forests on both days as well.

 New this year, all state park vehicle admission sticker fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived for both Saturday, June 7, and Sunday, June 8. Previously, the state park system's longstanding free open house was only the first Sunday in June; this year, vehicle admission fees have been waived for both the first Saturday and Sunday in June.

 "We're excited to add a second free day of admission to our state parks to make this truly a "free fun weekend," says Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp. "DNR is your gateway to the outdoors, and we want to open the door wide to everybody to enjoy our beautiful state and diverse recreation."

They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb but not in the Lonely Cache Game!

Jomusky racked up a lion's share of points in the last days of March to surge ahead of last month's winner Lacknothing who held the top spot for the month until this last onslaught of submissions.

Congratulations Jomusky!

Wisconsin Geocaching Association
Annual BOD Meeting
February 24, 2013 9:00 am
600 E Northland Ave, Appleton, WI
APPROVED MINUTES


Meeting was called to order at 9:05 am by Jim.
All board members were present including: Lisa Daniels, Peter Quella, James Bliefnick, Barry Butrymowicz, Rebecca Lillo, Chris Walker, Rob England, Brian Kling, Renee Vanselow-Tapp
 

First order of business was the election of officers for the 2013 BOD.
For the position of President: Jim was nominated by Barry and second by Rob
Brian was nominated but declined
Pete was nominated by Brian and second by Jim
Vote was cast by paper ballot with Jim receiving 7 votes and Pete 2 votes
 

For the position of Vice President: Brian was nominated by Barry and second by Lisa
Pete was nominated by Renee and second by Brian
Vote was cast by paper ballot with Pete receiving 5 votes and Brian 4 votes
 

For the position of Treasurer: Renee was nominated by Brian and second by Pete
With only one nomination Renee had unanimous vote
 

For the position of Secretary: Barry was nominated by Brian and second by Pete
With only one nomination Barry had unanimous vote
 

Recap of "How to be a Board Member"
Jim explained some of the problems about making motions in the forums, if possible motions should be brought up in the Board forums first, so we can discuss it first, the make the formal motion to vote on.
Pete brought up about the actual term of Board Members. The actual term for new members starts at the annual meeting. New members to the board gain access to the BOD forums immediately after the election, but do not have voting powers for the approximately 2 weeks that they are in transition.
Access to the BOD forums is so that they can get caught up to speed on current happenings and also the past info that is available there. A motion will have to be made, and a change to the bylaws stating the actual start of new BOD terms.
Talked about making motions, posting in forums, and how to use the electronic voting.
Terms begin at the annual business meeting we need to post and change the bylaws.
Posts can be moved and deleted by any BOD, If it looks like obvious spam, it can be deleted. Brian mentioned that the new “attacks” we have been getting are by actual people who go thru the process of signing up for the site, and then post links in their forum tag lines.
 

Treasurer’s Report
Renee passed around a spreadsheet for the PayPal account and the checking account.
Renee is looking at gaining online access to the checking account and having the availability for the four officers of the BOD.
PayPal Account is now a business account using our Tax ID number. We can have 25 authorized users to use the account. It is still attached to Renee's credit card as a backup. With our checking account,
we are able to get a debit/check card that could be used as the backup and would free Renee of all indemnity if we had a back charge from a PayPal dispute.
Brian made motion to accept the Treasurer's report, Rob second, all in favor.
Minutes from 2012 meeting accepted.


Possible purchase of bookkeeping software
Brian has a point of sale program that could be used, a few tweaks are needed to make it work at
events, but can be easily done.
 

2013 Budget
Reservations have been paid for the Campout event.
In the past this has been the operating budget that we have ran off of:
Publicity events $1000 (Brochures, Patches, Stickers)
CITO Events $900
Regional Events $600
Campout Reservations $475
Picnic $400
Winter/Chili $120
LCG $100
Mega/ Pancake Breakfast $300
BOD Plaques $100
Geocoin Minting $3000
Pathtags $300
Generic Shirt orders $700

Discussion on the budget was tabled and will be discussed.
 

Web Site Report
Brian presented a recap of what happened in the last year and what will happen in the future on the website, as time permits.
Lately we have only have had the COTM winners article as our only monthly WGA news article. New news articles are needed more often.
WGA membership requirements and related website changes
At this time no changes are needed to the membership requirements. If we are looking at becoming a 501(c)(3) all information will be needed for our records.
 

Education Committee Report
We should look at other opportunities with state parks in other parts of the state. Similar to the way that Scrappy has his set up at Pike lake, his 101 classes went over well last year.
Rob brought up that Kohler Andrae had a interest last year.
Geo 101 and Train the Trainer Contact West Bend committee, to set up the times for the Train the Trainer and 101 consecutively. Running the Train the Trainer first, then let them help with the Geo 101 after.
101 Classes at State Parks. It was brought up to see if we can only have our “certified” trainers do 101 classes at State Parks, per our reviewers, we cannot limit who can hold a 101 class.
We need to update the 101 training info on the webpage.
 

Membership Committee Report
Talked about possibly sending out a “New Member Package” (Nametag, Coin, WGA Pencils) at a approximate cost of $3 per person, $100 per year. Possibly send out once a month.

Ways to maintain Membership (Facebook, Twitter, other Social Media) - growing membership and a outline for growth

Brian and Chris, are the two admins for FB.
 

Committee Assignments for 2013

printer
download equip

portable fire place
nescos
coffee Pots
T-shirt report and inventory

Renee will research and bring back to to the group the option of ordering hats, minimum order is 24 would have the generic logo on them.
F1rebirds brought up idea of Panthervision hats. Tabled until we see a better finished product.
 

Merchandise Sales at non WGA events / Donations to events
If asked by the cache owner and we have someone available to bring stuff there, sales can be at any event. In appreciation of allowing us to sell at the event, a donation of shirt or coin can be made to the event raffle (at the discretion of the seller).
 

Possibility of placing a geocache in every state park
Research # of state parks and which do not have caches.
WGA would be the owner of the cache, have a local cacher be the trail boss and maintain the cache.
Contact Ralph and see what info he has from this in the past.
Possibly make up labels to put on cache containers, send them to willing trail bosses with pencils.
Brian will contact Ralph and get the information.
 

WGA TB Race prizes
Possible prizes would be a State park sticker. Come up with about 10 “categories” for prizes.
With the response that we had this year, having another race again the following year could be easily done. Brian said the TBRun site is easy to use, but could write the code easily enough to run it directly from our site.
First place winner would win a State park sticker, Winner would also have team name, mileage and year put on WGA trailer. Brian made motion Renee Second. All in favor.
 

Amend the "Vendors at WGA Events" motion? Or keep wording/ cost the same?
Changes made and will be posted in the BOD forums. Motion will need to be voted on and passed online.
 

2014 Waukesha Jamboree
City wide community event. Geo101 and temp caches. Have been using the WGA as a sponsor, Renee will be the contact as it has been in the past and will keep us informed.
 

Discuss possible amendment to Article XIII: Property, Funds, and Assets of the bylaws to allow for some funds to remain in the WGA PayPal account (see attachment B)
We should check into the insurance issues with PayPal. Discussed at meeting and resolved
PayPal holds funds in federally insured bank accounts.
Discuss wisdom of having a personal bank account tied to WGA funds, and possible solutions to current situation.
Look at getting a Debit card attached to our checking account. This would relive Renee of liability of having her Credit Card attached to the PayPal account.
Discuss responsibility of WGA for reporting income and paying taxes or annual filing and publishing of Form 990
We were advised by free legal counsel (Mr Curly Girls) Attorney at law:
As of right now we are not violating any issues and being a non-for-profit non-stock org and do not have to worry about paying taxes.
 

Best way to track WGA assets.
Bring trailer to all events possible.
 

LCG Event
Pete brought up that there might be a few rule changes or clarifications needed soon.
 

COTM
Possible COTM Tours setup on the website.
Brian also reminded us to check the COTM near the end of the month. The program needs to have at least one cache in each region nominated.
 

West Bend Cache Bash
Barry will bring a Fire Dept tent to the Picnic to try out. They are purchased at Sam's Club approximate price $300. After the picnic we can decide if we would want to purchase one.
Pancake Breakfast and Geo101 are wanted by the West Bend committee.
 

Newsletter
Rebecca will take on the challenge of the newsletter, all of the BOD members need to help with this.
Try to get one out at least quarterly. Any material should be ready for a Mid March Newsletter.
 

"Remote" attendance to BOD meeting
Not reasonable as of yet.


Member Benefits Package
Jim brought a packet of info from the company he works for. Passed it on to Pete for review. It could be offered to our membership at no cost to us. It would be a accidental injury insurance similar to Afflac.
 

Meeting adjured 4:27 motion by Jim second by Pete.
 

UPDATED VENDOR MOTION
Whereas the Bylaws of the WGA state that our mission includes, as one of four purposes, "Provide an opportunity for geocachers in the State of Wisconsin to gather and socialize with one another."
Whereas, commercial interests may desire to make their products available to members of the WGA at our events;
Whereas, some member of the WGA may like to purchase geocaching related commercial products while at our events;
Whereas, our mission is primarily to provide a place for geocachers to socialize with one another, and unfettered and uncontrolled selling of commercial products within the shelter can potentially compromise the purpose of our event by being over populated with commercial interests, and some members may feel that commercial activity makes it more difficult to socialize;
The WGA from this date forward establishes these rules for the selling of commercial products at our events:
1. Vendors must get prior permission from the WGA of at least 7 days prior to the event in order to be allowed to sell commercial products at any WGA event.
2. Vendors must provide to the WGA Secretary the following information in writing prior to being approved to conducting any commercial activity: Name of individual, name of company (if any), mailing address, phone number, email address, and description of products that are intended for commercial activity.
3. Vendors may be required to pay a fee of $25 to the WGA for the privilege of setting up their commercial activity at our event. If vendor fee is waived, a donation would be accepted (for door prizes) in lieu of fee.
4. The WGA BOD will designate a area for vendor sales, the area may or may not be inside a shelter (if available). Vendors must provide their own table, booth or shelter to the extent that they see fit. The WGA is not responsible for providing any equipment to vendors.

600 E Northland Ave, Appleton, WI

Recap of "How to be a Board Member"
There was a brief discussion informing the new board of directors on how to be a board member.
Becca asked the question of when is it proper to vote. Voting usually takes place when money is involved, or when there are policy changes. 
Reminder that all board members need to check in to the website at least twice a week and post when we'll be traveling or unavailable.

Treasurer’s Report
Renee gave the treasurer’s report. Updates on PNC bank branches and who can sign on the account. Currently Renee and Barry can sign on the account, Becca will be added shortly. Only officers should be signers on the account. The address for the WGA association needs to be changed as it currently Jeremy's address and he has sold that property. 
Becca made a motion to officially change the bylaws that the address for our financials be changed to the address of the treasurer. Val seconded the motion. We will vote on the motion once the bylaws have been changed in the forums.
Renee will research getting a debit card for the account and report back in the forums. This will make reservations easier as funds can be taken directly out of the account.
There was discussion regarding changing the by-laws about requiring 2 signatures on all checks. When Renee and Becca go into the bank to add signatures they will look into this.

2014 Budget
The biggest income opportunity for the WGA is merchandise sales and pancake breakfast at the West Bend Cache Bash. Donations are way down so our main source of income is merchandise sales at events. Discussion about spending money at events on activities. Mention on the dates of past campouts. Renee has been posting costs in the forums in the treasurer’s thread. All WGA Board of Directors need to try their hardest to be at the West Bend Cache Bash and help on Saturday with teaching the Geo 101 class, merchandise sales, downloads and the pancake breakfast on Sunday.

Web Site Report - additional webmasters needed
Running the website is a big job. Brian has expressed an interest in sharing the job or giving it up if there was another candidate that was capable of doing it. Discussed having a back-up person as the webmaster. BJ Lillo has offered to be a back-up in case of an emergency but not actively participate in the website. We should look for volunteers that are capable. Brian has been working on creating a new website that may be ready in June, possibly later. This new website will be more user-friendly to administer. He demonstrated this website to many of us at the chili event. We should put a second person's name on the web hosting site just in case of an emergency. Rob has expressed an interest in helping out but he can’t do it solely. Val is also on the website committee. We all need to be more mindful of helping out when Brian asks for it as well as taking on tasks ourselves that we are capable of doing, like updating the front page, starting forum categories, managing bookmark lists, etc. to lighten his load.

Education Committee Report
Renee and Becca are going to co-chair of the education committee. We have done a few things throughout the year, but has been a fairly inactive committee. Renee and Becca had done the Geo 101 at the West Bend Cache Bash. Renee taught a “How to teach a Geo 101” class during the year. Suggested updating the presentation materials on the WGA Resource Materials on the website. We should make an announcement when this is updated. Renee has an updated power point presentation and she will upload it to the website.. Discussion on doing a “Train the trainer” course that the WGA campout. Barry will find out more about whether or not the WBCB is going to want a Geo 101 class again and we will discuss further on the website. Cheeto, Jerry's Dad, MaskinWI, Greenthumb and Sunshine, Scrappy Scout, Trekkin and Birdin', Sandlanders are currently the non-BOD on the committee. We need to contact them to see if they still wish to be on this committee as well as ask if others would like to join. We need to get better about posting notes for requests for help in the education committee thread so that we can handle the events around the state.

Membership Committee Report - Discuss decline in numbers of members.
Chris is chair on this committee, there wasn't much done in this area in 2013. We are going to table this discussion for now but this should be a main focus for 2014. Discussed mentoring idea of Mr. Greenthumb. The membership committee will discuss the project and how we can get the mentoring program going and report back to the BOD. This is going to be a main focus of the WGA in 2014. The 9 BOD should be on the mentor list to lead by example. Members will volunteer to be on this program. Possibly doing some sort of recognition for the mentors, a banner to add to cache pages or on their WGA profile.

Committee Assignments for 2014
Rob would like to help on the website committee. Discussion on the bookmarks.
Membership:   Chair: Barry, Chris, Steve
Education: Becca & Renee: co-chair, August(?)
Website: Chair: Rob, Pete, Val

BOD photo
Will ask John Sudar to alter a photo to include August since he wasn’t at the meeting. We will take another photo at the campout when we’re all together.

Campout at Mirror Lake State Park
Mother's Day weekend. Shelter reservation has been made. Discussion about how many group sites we need? Rob will make the cache page. We are going to reserve sites 301, 302, 303 for the event and Renee will be reserving this. We will charge $10/tent/night. We are going to pre-order event shirts and have generic-logo merchandise available. We will be doing a pathtag for the campout and Barry and Val will create it. We are going to think about doing something little for the Mothers for the pancake breakfast since it is Mother's Day. If we do different events people may be more likely to stay. Maybe a Friday night event at the fire? With new Groundspeak rule changes we can't have different WGA events but other people want to host different activities that will work. Becca expressed an interest in hosting a CITO for the group, possibly contacting Jim to co-host as he seemed interested before.

State Park Challenge discussion
There are still 2 parks that are not spoken for: Nelson-Dewey and Council Grounds. Need to be placed: Belmont Mount, Yellowstone Lake, Buckhorn, Mill Bluff, Rock Island, Rib Mountain. The goal is to have the caches placed by 5/1. We need to talk to Brian about how the pocket query works to update the map on the website. 
Do we need to re-order pencils? The pencils were originally ordered for this State Parks series. We will be creating a committee for finishing off the series and recognition. So far, the committee is the BOD, Sandlanders, Trekkin and Birdin', Mr. Greenthumb and Sunshine, Jim. How many are going to complete the challenge? How many years are we going to have this challenge? We should present the plan at the campout. A plaque, patches, pins, etc.? The committee will decide and report back. 
Guidelines for the committee: 
-Approximately $5 prize for those that complete
-Time table is to have a decision made by mid-April
-Presented at campout
-$500 budget
-Contact friend groups for donations

Geocoins and Travel tags
All geocoin inventory in stock:   Box full of old coins. 1-2010 pathtag set, 1-2006, 13-2005, 10-2010 coins, 54-2011 coins, 17-2012 coins
WGA travel tag inventory 92 Cachekinz,
Cachekinz – Sold well at the Cache Bash. They are more inexpensive and people seem to like them. We should re-order before the Campout and use at the Cache Bash as well. Cache Addict has been a good vendor to work with, gave donations for the LCG event.
Old Geocoins: What should we do with them? Have several old 2011 and 2012 coins, were selling them 2/$10 at the Chili event. 
We would still like to do the 3D coin that Sandlanders came up with. This coin will be expensive and should be 2” size. Very intricate details. 
Goal to create a new coin to be released to sell in the store for Christmas sales. Barry and Val are going to work on this project and report back. 

CITO events
Review guidelines for financial assistance, to encourage
more member CITOs.
$150/event, up to 6 events a year. The WGA needs a proposal for how the money is to be spent; supplies, food, prizes, etc. Members should submit receipts afterwards. We don't need to host the cache page under the WGA profile but we should be mentioned. The website committee should come up with a boilerplate to put on the cache page mentioning the WGA. There were no events reimbursed in 2013, 3 in 2012. Merchandise will be donated at retail value. Several of the board members should go through the safe food handlers course and will be reimbursed by the WGA. Barry, Becca and Karen will go through the Food Handlers course this year, preferably before the campout and West Bend. 
 
WGA Adopt-a-highway
We should be cleaning up our stretch of highway 2-3x per year. Suggested date for clean up event 4/26 10-noon. October 11th for the fall CITO. Chris will be checking with Cheeto to see if he has a conflict with that date and we will reschedule, if so.

Fall event location.
Harrington Beach or Kohler-Andre? The date should be September 20th. We want to have a shelter that can be indoors, if possible. Bow season begins 9/13 so we are not going to go to the Kettle Moraine SF Southern unit. We have until next weekend to schedule it. There was also discussion on other possible locations around the Madison area.

Limited edition geocoin awards and service plaque awards
Plaques go to outgoing board members. Renee is going to get plaques for Jim, Brian and Lisa to be given out at the campout, if they attend. Renee will post a motion when she gets pricing. Consider giving out coins to members who go above and beyond for the WGA. There were a few names discussed for the coins but this is kept private so it can be a surprise, Becca has the notes for the names mentioned. Pete moved to give a coin to one member for their service to the WGA, Becca seconded it. 8 voted “aye” and passed.

WGA property
Current assets report – 2 grills, 2 propane tanks, 2 griddles, the trailer, the bins, plastic deer, several ammo cans, a variety of plastic animals, big roll of paper. Geo-101 presentation board, lots of plastic critters, 2 laminators, night cache numbers.
Trailer and WGA property storage-Who get's the WGA Hauler until the campout? Pete took it from the chili event.
We need to get a spare tire, there was a motion made last year. Pete will look into getting a spare tire. Discussion on purchasing a jack and tire iron. The motion to purchase will be made when the cost has been assessed. 
Pete will take the trailer, we need to keep it with the BOD, if possible. Pete will bring it to the campout, Barry will take it over the winter.
We need to keep a better record of the inventory in the trailer. We will be putting a spreadsheet on the BOD forums to keep updated. 

T-shirt report and inventory
We currently have 2 styles of shirts, classic and new design. We should re-order new style for future events. Long-sleeves and sweatshirts will be pre-orders for the campout. Also, event shirts will only be pre-order for the campout. Classic style is cheaper than the new design. We also have a clearance bin of shirts from previous events. For the chili event Renee ordered brown and green, green sold more. We should try to limit the variety of types to bring to events to limit confusion. There is a discussion on color choices for print and shirt. We sold 43 shirts at the chili event.

Best way to track WGA consumable assets.
We need to track the consumables. We are going to start keeping an updated spreadsheet on the WGA forums. This will help with purchasing before events. Also, whoever is housing the trailer won’t have to go out inventory it.

COTM –
The Cache of the Month has become stagnant so there is discussion on what to do about this. Continue? Revamp using Favorites? Discontinue? Administrator if continuing? Pete has been trying to put together some sort of a report but the data seems scattered. Some feel that it is a popularity contest. If there are no caches nominated the computer automatically puts the one from the month before. Discussion about shortening the time before a cache can be nominated. Change it to quarterly? Give points based on distance from home? Investigate farther into Iowa system of mileage.
Why is it becoming less popular? 
-Favorite points
-Hardly anyone is nominating
-Cache-dense areas getting more finds
 
For now we will keep it as is and investigate further. Pete will do the bulk of this research.

Cache Rescue/LCG administrator –
Dave S. has agreed to continue being the administrator for 2014, per TBC.
Pete will continue to monitor this.

WGA calendar discussion
Show your photos for the different seasons. Print calendars were decided to not be a good idea. Photo contests. Maybe do a computer wallpaper to download as a .jpeg file. Ask John Sudar to help with the galleries? Show your WGA-wear in different places. Contests?

Lonely Cache Game Event
This year's event was a smaller and more low-key. Was this good? Horicon is a good location as it is centrally located between the 3 areas where LCG players are: Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton. Usually right around Groundhog day. Horicon will be updating their building and they would like to have us back. January 31st/February 1st for a possible date. This event should stay as a member-driven event.

West Bend Cache Bash
Renee let us know that the WGA made $4000 gross revenue in '13. This is our biggest money-maker of the year. It was decided that the WGA does not need to be there on Friday. 
Saturday WGA Booth - We should add on the cache page that we will be there on Saturday. Barry and Val are on the WBCB committee so they are going to report back to us. WGA has committed to helping with cache downloads. Should we put the inventory behind the tables? People won't be touching and messing with the inventory. Look for volunteers to help but be selective with who handles the money. Be more careful with all of the cash. Where can it go? Possibly park a car to lock the cash inside. We need to ask people for specific jobs for helping. We don't want volunteers to be burned out. Sign up for 2 hour shifts? 
Sunday Pancake breakfast - Big Jim will be helping with pancakes for the Cache Bash. Do we need to go Mega for the pancake breakfast? Last year we had over 400 people attending. If possible, we should get more people volunteering. Renee will contact Groundspeak about making it a Mega event. 
More fruit and coffee, sausage and pancakes were good.

Newsletter-
Not a lot of member feedback, which could be a good thing. It seems well-received. Contests? Promote different events and things back to the website. 

TB Race-
It was nice to sell the cachekinz to send out with the TB race. They are cheaper than tags from Groundspeak, which is nice for the members, and it is a fundraiser for the WGA. Keep the rules the way that they are. Get the name on the hauler by the campout.

WGA Store Discussion
We can only have our store open so many days per year so that we can keep our status of non-profit. We can discuss with Curly Girls/Lisa. Shipping is the difficulty for opening up the store. We need to work on this as soon as the Cache Bash is over. Rob is going to investigate shipping and make sure that we get the needed information on shipping to our webmaster. Becca is going to talk between everyone and make sure that everyone has the information that they need. If all works out to open the store for pre-Christmas sales there will be a packing party in the Milwaukee area.


WGA Photo Gallery Update/ Discussion
Chris has been changing the photos in the gallery. Brian seemed appreciative of someone else helping make the change to the website. It is nice to have different pictures, people are feeling connected to the website. Be mindful of photo aspect ratio. Possibly once a month to change the photos.

WGA sponsored Meet and Greets across the state- low key events.
We should try and get out to areas with less events. We should contact people from different parts of the state to see if they would like assistance and possibly sell merchandise. Each of us needs to see what we can do about bringing things and including more membership. We want to include more members from all over the state. Pete talked about holding an event in Waupaca because there are some long-time cachers up there. August can look into this more?

Marriage Encounter Workshop-
July 11 in DePere
Request for help on website. Details on website. This will be on the Education Committee so they will discuss this further.

Cafe Press discussion
The store has been closed as it hasn’t been updated in many years. The WGA never made any money from Café Press so we don’t see the need to continue it.
 
Discuss BOD length of terms, from 2 to 3 years.
Discussing how we want to change over the terms. Do we want to stagger it so 3 positions are up every year? Do we want to change people's current term? Do we want to make future changes or change the terms that are currently held? This will be discussed more in depth in the forums and investigated. The following is our current by-law regarding BOD length of term.

Article IV: Board of Directors
 
Terms: A Board Member's term in office shall be approximately two years, with the newly elected board members term to begin at the annual board meeting held following the election. New board members will have immediate access to the restricted areas of the WGA website upon election, but should refrain from resolution votes until the start of their term at the annual board meeting. Terms will be arranged so that approximately half of the Board positions will be up for election each year. Board Members may be re-elected. Individuals elected to fill vacancies will serve the remainder of the standard term of office.
 
The meeting was adjourned at 5:00 PM.
