Elections & Planning Meeting
by Mike Bailey
Where: Bountiful Mazda; Upstairs Conference Room
Date & Time: Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
Dinner Menu: Pizza and Salad provided by club
Our annual Election and Planning Meeting will be on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. at our usual place in the Conference Room (upstairs) at Bountiful Mazda. We are keeping the menu really easy and simple this year as it worked out so well with less fuss and bother last year, so thanks to Jim we decided to do the same thing. Our Dinner menu will be Pizza and Salad and Cookies for dessert with bottled water provided by the Club. The club will take care of all the food this year so no pot luck menu items will be necessary to bring from members.
We will conduct our annual Elections Meeting first and elect "New" Club Officers & Directors for the 2017 year. Please let any current officer know by the January luncheon if you are interested in running for any of the open positions which will be President, Vice President and two Director's positions. Also let us know if you would like to nominate anyone for one of these positions, but let them know of this in advance as a courtesy so they may accept or decline the invitation. After election of Officers, we will appoint and ratify the other appointed positions available for club members. Remember this is your club so please join the team of great leaders that we have had in the past and run for an office.
After the elections we will have the 2017 Planning Meeting. At this time the new President will preside over the rest of the meeting. This is where we discuss the major activities and drives for the year and do a basic outline in planning them. Be sure to bring a Calendar with you if you have one. We would like to have a different club member be in charge, each month of the year, for planning the luncheon place or type of luncheon we will have as well as plan a drive or activity. You can plan this with two or three couple friends if you like, so not one couple has all the responsibility. You also do not have to 'be in charge' of running it or leading the drive, if you wish not to, but express this at this time. We are mainly looking for good or 'new' ideas on drives and activities. Put on your thinking caps and let's plan some new activities or drives this year and try something different. It is good to get new ideas from new club members on what you want to do. The success of this club depends on new ideas from all the people in the club. Hope to see everyone at this event. It will be a great way to start off the new year!
Bountiful Mazda should have a new 2017 RF (Retractable Fastback) Miata on the showroom floor (if it is not sold by this date) for us to look at. We want to thank Bountiful Mazda and MJ and Mike MacDonald for providing their conference room for our club meeting. We ask that you patronize our Dealer Sponsor throughout the year.
