PROGRAM AND EVENTS:
There was discussion regarding the Executive Committee’s desire to get an accurate reporting of the attendees at each event. There was also discussion regarding having each Credit Union mentor other Credit Unions who do not participate. We discussed that Kathy Figgs, Chairperson of this Committee would not be able to attend the Executive Committee Meetings, but Fran and Gail are also members of that Committee so they could report back regarding Programs and Events. We were happy to hear that Ken Ross has agreed to participate in our program at the end of June.
GOV’T & POLITICAL FORUM REPRESENTATIVE:
Drema reported that our chapter is at 65% of our goal for the State PAC and 24% of our goal for the Federal PAC. Drema also reminded everyone that Marcia Hune from MCUL sends out a weekly legislative update and if you are not currently receiving it contact Marcia to get on the list.
CU DIFFERENCE CAMPAIGN:
The next meeting is next week so there was no report at this time.
Ron Martin distributed and discussed various MCUL affairs via a handout report detailing the information. Ron also let the group know that he is now servicing the Metro East and Battle Creek Chapters.
The Committee held its meeting on June 2 and tentative numbers indicate that approximately $9,500 was raised for the March for Babies. The next charity is Relay for Life which will be held June 13 and 14. Volunteers are still needed. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Laura at 586-771-4260 ext. 22. The upcoming charity for July and August will be No Homeless Student Left Behind. They are in particular need of backpacks for girls and all types of school supplies. If you are interested in donating to this, please contact Crystal at 751-4100. PAC Bowling will be on August 6 at Total Sports.
Drema reported that she and Lisa got a lot of great information at the Chapter Leaders Retreat. We will discuss this more at the August meeting as we have several of our Committee absent today. Drema also suggested that we start thinking about our planning for next year which is usually done at our November meeting. Drema urged everyone to review the information regarding the League Director Election and to vote. This is an important position as the person will be representing our chapter.
A motion was made by Fran P. and supported by Roger Q. that we approve up to $400 for our Chapter’s donation to the Children’s Miracle Network Auction. Motion passed. Lisa will follow up with Gail to determine and purchase the gift.
