Meeting Minutes

porpoellerclublogoMinutes Summary (October 2018)

The meeting of the Propeller Club (Port of Washington, DC) Board of Governors was called to order by President Matt Dwyer. The minutes of the September meeting were approved. Treasurer Jon Kaskin gave his financial report. Overall, our account is unchanged in recent months and we have two new members.

Matt Dwyer was able to confirm that the annual Holiday Party again will be in the Columbus Room at Union Station. The management there gave us improved terms, perhaps now that we are a repeat customer. The event will be on December 11.  Meanwhile, plans continue for the hosting of a “lifetime achievement award” luncheon next month. Jim Patti said that March 5, is the tentative date for the  annual Maritime Industry Congressional Sail-In. As previously discussed, we will plan to host a reception honoring new Members of Congress while industry representatives are in town for the Sail-In.

Secretary Paul Bea reported that, as approved by the Board last month, we now are posting industry related articles and news items on the club’s Facebook page and website. The administration of the Facebook page has been transferred to Paul Fitzgerald, our website administrator.

Shortly after our meeting, it was confirmed that Bill Hanson agreed to join the Board of Governors, filling an empty seat. The meeting concluded, the Board next meets on November 2.
