Thank you to everyone who came out to our General Membership meeting at Milano Cafe this evening, what a great turnout! Thank you to CIAO member, Dr.Tony Denisco for such an informative talk on handgun law and concealed weapon permits, it generated a lot of interest and lively discussion.
Our president, Pete Mariotti spent some time talking about our new revised Constitution and he explained how the new revisions were written with the intent of creating a more member-focused organization where the membership has more knowledge of what's going on and more input in club decisions. According to the new revised Constitution, Board members will now be elected by the membership instead of appointed by the President as the procedure has been. This will allow more diversity and ensure that we have a board that is representative of all the membership. Our first election of Board members will be held next year, alternating election years with the officer positions. Pete emphasized that the Board welcomes comments, ideas and questions from our membership at any time.
And the part everyone is wondering about, we held our first cash drawing tonight! The good news for all of us is, the winner was not present so the money goes into the pot and next month's drawing will be for $200! The bad news is, Brad Spencer, you could have had an extra $100 in your pocket right now. No worries, Brad, your name has been put back into the bucket for another chance next month!
