Board Meeting Notes:

Meeting called to order at 8:46 am, October 20, 2018 – Wintergreen Resort, Wisconsin Dells, WI

Luana brought up the idea of the board having more meetings throughout the year, primarily the VPs, President, Secretary, Treasurer, etc.  It was discussed that these could be a conference call or Skype meeting, Sam has the number for the conference call.

Also, officers should provide a report in writing on whats going on in their region, take more responsibility for their position.

Luana mentioned that her appointment to the STC is up in July 2019, she is not sure if she will continue.

Helen will check on the internet or phone services available at Hidden Waters Golf Course for the next meeting..

They are looking for a 4WD Representative for the trails spec committee, more to be discussed in the afternoon meeting.
