  1. Fred Nolte

    I will not be able to attend. Working in Calgary (and by sheer coincidence visiting the grandson!) A couple of comments:

    1. Geoff Baille has volunteered to produce a couple of training videos. “The topics could cover everything from PFDs to how to do an oil change to stern tieing.” I would like to ask the executive to endorse this idea, and to encourage Geoff. (Of course we will approve work hours, right?)
    2. Two suggestions from Graham: 1. Suggests we give a presentation at next year’s Boat Show (even if we don’t have a booth?) Might be a good way of generating interest and 2. A key fob at Thunderbird costs $15. Members who want to go more than once might want to buy their own key fob. A photocopy of the parking pass works, provided there isn’t more than one person doing it. Own key fobs and photocopied parking passes is how Ambleside Coop handles this.
    3. Could we please review what personal information is going onto the website. My understanding is there are not any substantial changes, but maybe Joel could explain the technicalities, and we could make sure we are comfortable with any changes.
    4. A reminder that we decided over a year ago to make Brenda Beck the record keeper, and she has been compiling all of our records onto a remote drive. This was done specifically over concerns about putting too much information on the web. Regardless of where records will ultimately be kept, for now Brenda is the record keeper, so all records should be going to her.
    5. I understand current membership records have not been turned over to Brenda yet. Keeping a rigorous file of waivers, membership signup, and qualifications was very much front of mind when we set up a record keeper. Can we make a decision on how to go forward with this?

    Thanks all.
