The Board of Directors met on January 13, 2009 to elect officers for the year, complete our re-affiliation application with DBSA, and conduct other business concerning the group.
Officers for 2009 are David and Susan, Co-Presidents, Bob and Emily, Co-Vice Presidents, Anthony and Fran, Co-Secretaries, and David and Irving, Co-Treasurers.
We decided to permanently change the ending time of our meetings to 9:15 PM starting March 2009. Since November, we have been ending the meetings at 9:00 PM as an experiment. We will continue to conclude our meetings at 9:00 PM through February. Previously, the meetings had run to 9:30 PM.
We decided to create welcome packets to distribute to new members of the group. A committee was appointed to work out the details.
We also decided to make comment cards available to members, old and new alike, to get anonymous, and honest, feedback on how the group is doing and how it can be improved. A committee was appointed to create the cards with input from all board members.
