Year end summary – a cash transfer from the
Vanguard account into the operational account will be needed in the very near
future to cover several large expenses at the beginning of the year. Estimate
was two to three thousand dollars. A large expense for web hosting (three year
period) is coming due in 2018. Two unpaided expenses, 2017 PO Box and 2017 Ride
leader jerseys, will be carried over into 2018 causing two entries for each in 2018.
There was discussion about the need to have
a better break down of TDA (Tour D’Amico) expenses. The possiblity of a
dedicated TDA treasurer (or assistant treasurer) to specifically measure and
track TDA expenses was suggested.

Marty indicated that he would work with club
department chairs (TDA, Membership, and Ride leader) to develop and publish
more information about these club functions. This would enable members to
better understand what takes place in these areas in hope to attract more
volunteers to help out.
A 2018 TDA director is needed. The club is
still searching for a member to step forward. This is a very important position
and needs to be filled as soon as possible.
The 2018 calendar was reviewed. A 2018 Ride Leader department head is
The board received a thank-you card and
note from Edie Kalweit for a gift card granted to her for years of supplying

members birthdays with a cake.
The club thanks you Edie for all you do.
