IV  Items Requiring Discussion or Action

  1. IMBA Chapter Program Discussion & Decision – Bylaws, Charter, Final Vote: Discussed Section 18 requirement for any 3CMB employee to be managed by IMBA. Not a deal-breaker. Discussed what constitutes a quorum: simple majority. Terms of office: 2 year terms, 2 term limit. Article 7: Board shall be not less than 5 directors and no more than 20. Agreed on the need to review Chapter status in depth in one year, with the understanding that it may take as long as 2 years to fully know community and financial impacts. Greg will find out “When do members receive the first IMBA email?”  So we will know when to have our education plan in place.

Bob Nanninga moves, Tim 2nd CCCMB become an IMBA Chapter beginning in 2013 and that cccmb revisits that decision yearly, with the understanding that if the Directors are dissatisfied with the relationship, the affiliation will be ended.

2.      Moving Dirt –   Tabled.















3.      2012-13 goal setting; Choose a manageable number of goals to work on this year, e.g. solidifying process & have a plan for recruiting to directors group.

Reviewed all of the proposed tasks from the Strategic Plan of 2010 and conclude that we had achieved or were working on all the significant ones.  But that the five below might be appropriate goals for 2012-13.

Voted to choose 2.  One of which would be the organizational follow-through required by becoming a Chapter.

Trail Etiquette – 0 votes

Recruitment to Leadership Core, including Crew Leaders – 8 votes

Maximizing Volunteers/Volunteer Communication – 9 votes

Community Partnerships – 3 votes

We chose Recruitment to Leadership Core unanimously because after looking at the Recruitment Process that had been developed earlier it was decided that by focusing on this goal we could also make progress on the Maximizing Volunteers goal.

Frank volunteered to work on community partnerships.


4.      IMBA Trail Care Crew – Is it something we want to consider for 2012-13? Frank, Bob and Bill say “yes!” Will investigate options at the IMBA Summit at Santa Fe.  And make a decision at October meeting.

5.      Guidelines for being a CCCMB sponsor – do we need some?  Do we care? Tabled. To be worked on at a later date.  Greg will respond to inquiry about law firm sponsorship.
