Jo Ann tasked with contacting W. Gulf Division Director on his recommendation for legal assistance with club formation (which she has done and is awaiting reply),
We agreed to hold two committee meetings per month on the first and third Tuesdays (but schedules prevent another Feb. meeting), We agreed to investigate incorporation as part of writing constitution and By-Laws.
The committee voted on the club name suggestions and narrowed it to two (ARCONET and NETARK) for a membership vote (but further investigation suggests the committee revisit the name suggestions).
*John emailed Paul and he suggested we consider the name Upshur County Amateur Radio Association, UCARA.
*All committee members need to give more thought to and present additional name suggestions at our next committee meeting.
