Susan made a motion that the secretariat pay a cleaning fee, up to $500.00, to clean after the Cursillo weekend when held at Camp Noel Porter; it was seconded by Evan; all voted, the vote was unanimous.
Evan made a motion to change the secretariat meetings from the third Tuesday of the odd months to the fourth Tuesday of the odd months; it was seconded by Linda; all voted the vote was unanimous. Future meetings will be May 24, Sept 27, and Nov 22 for 2011.
Susan noted that Cursillo #104 has presented some challenges; low number of candidates, smaller team and the weather. The biggest being the weather conditions. The concern is that we do not want to put any team member, candidate or sponsor in harms way by having to drive under any hazardous weather conditions.
Susan made a motion that in the event of any dangerous weather conditions, #104 may need to be postponed until further notice. The secretariat board will meet again, via email on March 31, one week prior to the #104 weekend, to make a final decision. In the event that it is determined that #104 will be postponed due to hazardous weather conditions, the secretary will send a notice to the core team of #104 telling of its postponement. The secretary will also notify by email, all sponsors of this decision and instruct them to notify their candidates and to let the secretariat know when all candidates have been notified; it was seconded by Evan; all voted, the vote was unanimous.
Russ and Susan tried to contact Beth Southorn by phone to let her know of our decision and to get her input but she was not available. Russ or Susan will be contacting her.
Meeting adjourned at 7:35 by Russ
Next meeting May 24, 2011
