General Membership Meeting to be held on January 25th, 2011
Tone will be very important
Will serve as our membership drive
Business to include the ratification of the by-laws for the FOLB Foundation
1. Motion passed to keep FOLB the main structure with the Foundation as a subsidiary for appropriate fundraising and other tax exempt projects. A Separate accounting system and checking account will be required. The Foundation can use the current tax ID number. The two corporations have separate corporate ID.
2. Dues structure discussion: $20 annually per individual; $30 annually per
couple. IF you belong to one of the three golf organizations, you
may elect to join FOLB for only $5 additional dollars. If you do NOT
belong to LGA, MGA or SSMGA, then membership to FOLB is $20.
This membership “break” is to reflect the partnership among the
three golfing groups. This $5 would not be tax exempt if a Bag Tag is ordered.
3. Bag Tags: for the $5 membership fee, a bag tag will be given. The FOLB
design will be on one side. Gary Neffendorf has been approached
about putting the Lady Bird logo on the reverse side along with
a place for the member’s name. Lee Bodenhamer will get back to the
board with a cost estimate. We prefer to buy locally, if possible.
3. How to develop esprit de corps within the Lady Bird golfing community:
Lee Bodenhamer presented the idea of an annual fall golf tournament to benefit a public charity; it should be organized and “manned” by the membership of LGA, MGA and SSMGA. With the support and blessing of the new D.O.G., of course, this tournament would benefit a public charity each year (2011 will benefit “breast cancer” in memory of the wife of Mark Seitz). This project would be a win-win for the three golfing groups and also for the new D.O.G. who could bring his “resources” to bear on the project. Jimmy Lukacs told us that the D.O.G. will be hired this week!
With the new D.O.G. coming aboard within the next month, we felt comfortable making and passing the following motion:
FOLB will dedicate itself to a public charity golf tournament in the fall of 2011. We should initiate contact with the 3 organizations and the D.O.G. as soon as is possible. He could certainly bring his resources to bear on the event in a very positive and public manner. (It was suggested that this first fall charity tournament be dedicated to the memory of golfer Mark Seitz’s wife who passed away with breast cancer. )
4. Leonard brought up his power point presentation highlighting many of the
accomplishments made in 2010 by FOLB . It was decided to invite City Manager Gary Neffendorf to introduce the new D.O.G. to the membership on the 25th.
Leonard thanked Anna Marie, Jim, Lee and Joe for joining us.
A motion to adjourn was made and passed; the meeting adjourned at 6:50 pm.
