Minutes Summary (February 2019)
The meeting was called to order by President Matt Dwyer at 8:39am. The minutes of the December meeting were approved. Treasurer Jon Kaskin gave his report, noting that the 2018 Holiday Reception netted the club a modest amount as compared to a more significant loss from the prior event. A few sponsorship payments from 2018 events are still to come in. President Matt Dwyer announced that he is leaving his job with MEBA to join the staff of the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard & Marine Transportation later in February. He therefore was stepping down from the Board of Governors and his leadership position. In turn, Vice President Jen Wilk agreed to serve as President of the Board of Governors. Chris Johnson offered a motion to commend Matt Dwyer for his leadership. It was unanimously approved by voice. We were reminded that maritime sector news items are welcomed for posting on the club’s website and Facebook page. Club members should send such non-advocacy news items to President Jen Wilk, Secretary Paul Bea or Jim Patti. We will look to do a membership luncheon in late-March or early April, depending on our securing a speaker. Our next scheduled meeting is March 1.
