Categories: General Date: May 8, 2013 Title: Full Board has its First Meeting
Friends of Armenia held its first meeting as a full board on May 6th. Since the election of new officers in March, two prior meetings were used to appoint a new president and a new technology officer as those positions remained unfilled after the election. I'm thankful that my time as interim president was so short lived. Vanessa Bowie Rankin (A16)has accepted the appointment as president, and David Coe A17) will take on the role of technology officer. When I complete the minutes from this meeting and they are approved, you will be able to view them on our website. I can say in general that we approved some funding for our ongoing community support programs and reviewed the success of our first try at an annual membership renewal period. Though there were many that did not renew their membership in April, we can now focus our efforts on obtaining new members. Those whose membership has lapsed may change that status at any time by sending in the $15.00 membership fee. Additionally there is a commitment to keep our website updated and a newsletter is in the works.
I'm excited about the enthusiasm of the new board and look forward to working with them and you during the remainder of the year. Your ideas and comments are always welcome.
