Officers' Meeting Minutes 01.24.16

Alan R., Mitch L., and Mike M. met at Whole Foods on William Cannon at 2:00 PM. Gary F. could not make it, texting ahead that he had company today.

We discussed the meeting calendar and talked about ideas for future events.

The Show and Tell last month went well enough that we should consider this again for August or September.

We need to clarify when the Metal Detectorists will be able to bring their presentation to our club meeting.

Do we want to have a club table at the statewide detectorist convention?

We need to discuss whether and how to make the Webmaster a constitutional club officer.

We should consider whether and what kind of public event to host in order to attract new members. Something along the lines of displays and exhibits might be useful. A club show where the only dealers are club members and tables are $15 might work into that format.

We need to formalize our presence at Bryan’s Round Rock coin shows so that those who volunteer to work the club table are recognized with extra drawing tickets, for instance.

We can offer the opportunity to make a field trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Fort Worth. We can do this independent of the monthly meeting. It will have to be during the week, as the BEP is only open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

We would like to solicit ideas from the members for meeting topics from siege coins or shipwreck salvage to whatever other interests they have.

We spent a lot of time talking out alternative plans for the next Christmas Party. Do we want to rent a hall and have dinner catered? Can we find a hall such as a church basement or church hall for free through a member? So we want to arrange for an entrée such as Fried Turkey and have the rest be a pot luck event? Do we want to have barbeque catered? Do we want to find a place more accommodating to our needs for a private room and meal service?

We adjourned at 3:10 PM.
