Board Meeting Minutes
October 16, 2018 | Post-Membership Meeting | William T Cozby Public Library, Coppell TX
Attendees: Darryl Briggs, Aaron Hulett, Jonathan Sheets
After the Regular Membership Meeting concluded, the Regular Board meeting was called to order by Darryl Briggs at 8:24 PM.
Approval of last Board meeting minutes
Jon moved to approve the minutes as submitted by Aaron and Darryl seconded. With all in favor, the minutes were approved.
Jon moved to approve the treasurer report as submitted by Aaron and Darryl seconded. With all in favor, the treasurer report was approved.
Jon updated on the repeater project. We reviewed the previous Coppell group’s equipment and determined it would be more appropriate to purchase a new repeater rather than attempt sourcing parts and attempting to tune the previous equipment. Some items, such as the duplexer, we may be able to use. We will investigate if we can take advantage of Yaesu’s reduced price repeater promotion.
Aaron updated on the website. Now that the group has moved from starting up into running, Aaron updated the website with more appropriate content, such as an about us page, latest news area, and a refreshed homepage. There was an issue with the new theme Aaron wanted to implement, and he reached out to the developer to have it resolved. The developer was able to fix the issue and the new theme is implemented.
November Parks on the Air (POTA) event
Based on the discussion at the Membership Meeting, the Board unanimously approved holding a Parks on the Air event on Saturday, November 20, starting at 2pm, at the Lake Ray Roberts park. Aaron will update the website and social media with information about the event and set up an Eventbrite page for registration.
With no other business before the Board, the meeting was adjourned at 8:39 PM.
