EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES
January 5, 2012
The regular meeting of the EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE of the METROEAST CHAPTER OF CREDIT UNIONS was called to order by Drema Isaac at 9:11 a.m. at Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union.
Drema Isaac, Lisa Burroughs, Marty Winiarski, Jim Safian, Gail Hernalsteen, Fran Pierce, Patty Campbell, Jan Rose and Vicki McIntosh.
COMMITTEE MEMBERS EXCUSED:
Carolyn Edwards, Kathie Trembath and Gary Sylvester.
Jenny Bulgrien, Lauren Vance and Ron Martin.
PREVIOUS MEETING MINUTES:
Motion was made by Marty and seconded by Jim to approve the minutes of the Executive Committee Meeting held on December 1, 2011. Motion carried.
The Treasurer’s Report for December was presented. There were some questions regarding the expenses associated with the Holiday Party. Fran will prepare a final accounting for the event and present it in February. A motion to approve the report was made by Marty and seconded by Vicki. Motion carried.
PROGRAM AND EVENTS:
There was discussion about whether we really need a speaker for the Holiday Party as most people felt that the speaker was rushed. The consensus was that this event should be more of a social event in the future and a speaker would not be necessary.
GOVERNMENT & POLITICAL FORUM REPRESENTATIVE:
Patty reviewed her written report. Patty announced that the ME GAC Committee would be led by Tony from Christian Financial. Patty asked that the Executive Committee send someone to participate on this Committee. The first meeting will be at the end of February.
CU DIFFERENCE CAMPAIGN:
Ron presented his written report. Dave Adams will be attending our meeting in February and the League will buy breakfast for the meeting.
Vicki reviewed her written report. There was discussion about the Member Net Asset policy and the Education Sponsorship recommendation from Management. District VII is not in support of either of these recommendations.
Gail reported that the Macomb Food Bank was appreciative that our group helped to sort 5,800 lbs. of food. For January and February the charity is Lupus.
Drema asked the committee if we would be supportive of allocating $500 per year to each committee so they could go to lunch when they hold their meetings.
Jan made a motion that we allocate $500 each per year to the ME GAC, Charity, Program and Events and CU Difference Committees and Marty seconded. There was discussion that the CU Difference Committee would use their funds to promote the program (possibly taking a CEO to lunch to discuss the program, etc.). Motion passed.
Jan said that the MCUF appreciated the donation and will be placing a digital plaque of recognition on the Chapter’s website.
The Feb. 2, 2012 meeting will be at Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union starting with breakfast at 8:30, Dave Adams at 9:00 and the Chapter Meeting at 10:00. The RSVP will be due on January 25.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:40 p.m.
