Minutes:  review 8/8/18 BOD minutes.  No changes or corrections.  Minutes accepted as written.

Reports:

Treasure -  

  1. Jonathan Weldy (Excused Absence)-  Tracey Graham asked if all have reviewed the 2018-2019 Directors & Officers Insurance renewal.  No questions were posed to the BOD.

  1. Membership numbers: 114 Associate members, 708 Regular members, 497 Senior members, 1,319 Total members.

  2. Newsletter for August and September has been emailed to the addresses on file.  Some were returned.  If you did not get one, check your spam and put Elizabeth in your address book.  Paper copies are also available at the Adobe Clubhouse.

 

Vice President-

1.   Ed Swan discussed a revision of the current sponsor program. Current program as established is not working.  BOD held a workshop where new ideas were discussed.  Suggestions were then taken to the Safety Committee where it was unanimous on a new approach.  New approach-all requirements will remain the same except there will be no sponsor.  Instead, the new member must attend 2 training classes, one at the pistol range and one at rifle range.  Additionally, in the new member packets there will be a list of  volunteer members who are willing to meet them at the range if they want to shoot while on probation.  Discussion Held.  It was decided that a document should be clearly written up on the new procedure so the BOD has something to vote on, and that can be transferred directly to the Policies and Procedures.  Sonny deRose suggested a BOD meeting to accomplish the write-up.

2.  Ed Swan discussed rejuvenating the Range Monitor Program.  First level of control is presence.  Currently there is no presence of law and order and therefore we are seeing numerous safety violations.  Discussion held.  Ed reported that there would be training for the Range Monitors and they would be needed mostly during peak hours. 

 

President-

  1. Tracey Graham reported on a recurring issue regarding members using the club as private business.  Discussion held.  Paul Nadreau made a motion to not allow for-profit classes put on by private business to be taught at AVGC.   Further discussion held that this would require a rewrite of the Policies and Procedures.  Gary Menser-point of order: The BOD could just not approve the event requests until the policy change is made.  Motion dies.
