Said there is no agenda and that we need to meet again on June 22nd.
Positions have been up and posted for 2 weeks, however we will wait and vote on them at our next meeting so that everyone is informed ahead of time on who is running.
Ken was asked if he could move up to Mike Patterson’s position and step aside. Heath said that Ken could stay VP. Ken said that if he stays VP he can still vote. Ken stated this was up to the board.
Ti asked if Ken had a verbal that Mike Patterson had resigned. We all received his resignation via email from Heath Patterson.
Ken asked if we were going to conduct business.
Player agent is to run registration. Fairmont church was used last year for fall ball.
Heath asked if we could get Wi-Fi at the ballpark, issues were discussed poster, hooking everything up, etc. Betty said there are some people that can help (Eric). Betty asked who had the packet information for registration for the new player agents.
Ken asked Russell if he knew what all he was in charge of. Ken said he has notes to go by that can help get him started.
Heather spoke of putting company signs on the fences of the fields. City has already approved this; they set a maximum number of signs per field. We would establish and set perimeters, such as sign size, type, no white or light colored backgrounds, etc. Several ideas were presented:
Banner or sign – type of sign (material)
4 x 8 signs
Should we order them or should the sponsoring company supply them
Vary in color, size stays the same
Metal washers in the signs (Durable)
Heath made a motion for the cost of the sponsorship signs to be $500 per year or $750 for 2 years. Roy 2nd. Motion was tabled. Heather will brainstorm and bring ideas back to the next board meeting.
Ken stated that we should wait to conduct business at a later date, because we do not have financials and we are missing a lot of information.
Shelbie made a motion to move Ken from Vice President to President. Lucretia 2nd. All in favor – motion passed.
Howard asked if we could all be informed on who is running for the open positions.
The secretary will send the interested candidates out to the board and publicity will post the candidates on the website.
Pam has sold 13 memory bricks. Pam would like to buy memory bricks for the 1st place teams for this year. This was tabled until Ken can see financials.
Betty spoke of having a survey go out through sports pilot asking members about 5U and 6U. Tonya asked that we ask about the raffle as well.
