Old Business

Catalog is projected to be delivered the first weekend of August.

Open house will be set for August 17, 9:00 am to noon. Volunteers are needed to work the vehicle parking sticker table, the membership cards table, and someone is needed to help answer phones in office (since most staff is helping out with open house). Actual registration for CLL students will be done by USCA staff. Raleigh will ask for technical volunteers at his meeting and David will send out an email asking for volunteers from liaisons.

New Business

After extensive debate, the proposal was changed to allow chair-elects (chosen by their committee or their chair) to be encouraged to attend all board meetings along with the committee chair (or in place of the chair when he had to be absent). The chair-elect could participate in the meetings, but would not have a vote unless he was representing the committee when the chair was absent.

The board voted to add the positions. Any board member can nominate a candidate for either of the positions. The elected board member would be a voting member of the board.

Jim Tisaranni nominated Donna Wesby, who is manager of radio station SHOUT 94.7 (WAAW). The board agreed that it would be a good choice. He will get in touch with her and see if she is interested.

Nancy Hughes was nominated as chair for the committee. Debate followed, but resolution was not voted on due to time constraints. Proposal will be addressed again at next meeting.

CLL will follow USCA’s protocols for dealing with Covid.

Masks not required at present, but may be encouraged.

There will be no online classes.

Michael will determine which member benefits are unique to CLL and which are available to seniors at large.

Bylaws updates are to be recorded by secretary when they are voted in by board.

Regular Board meetings for the fall semester 2021 will be on the first Friday of each month, August through November, at 10:00 am in room 102.

Meeting adjourned at 11:10 am.

Respectfully submitted,

Harriet Haynes, Acting Secretary
