Minutes

SIR – SIERRA BRANCH 77 – DECEMBER 9TH, 2021 BEC MINUTES


Meeting was called to order by Big Sir Dennis Hembrey at 10:00


Secretary Mike Clay called the roll, a quorum was present.


Officers present were Big Sir Dennis Hembrey, Little Sir Donald Ronalter, Secretary Mike Clay.
1 yr Director Ken Lucas
2 yr Director Tony Pedroncelli,
3 yr Director Mariano Garces and Craig Hempler,
Apologies were received from those not present.


Minutes for November 11th, 2021 were read. A motion was made to accept the minutes as
presented. MSP. No Form 20 Revisions to report.


Treasurer Jim Stenger was absent. The Form 28 for November reports a cash balance of
$3,786.30.


Membership Chairman Donald Ronalter reported that the current membership is 113. He
anticipates a reduction of perhaps 20 once we start to collect dues for 2022. There are no new
members to be inducted today and no new applications to vote on.


A discussion was held concerning directorships for next year. We may no longer need to fill 6
director positions, pending any changes in instructions on this it was decided that we will
consider Ken Lucas for a new term as a 3 yr director. It is unlikely that Dick Mitchell will be able
to attend meetings so this would give us 4 directors in regular attendance. Also we do not yet
have a Little Sir candidate for 2022.


Little Sir, Donald Ronalter presented a calendar of meetings for 2022 and it was agreed that this
should be distributed to all members.


Little Sir, Donald Ronalter reported that today’s planned speaker is Matt Hawkins the Mayor of
Sonora.


Big Sir Dennis Hembrey that the contract with the Elks for lunch for 2022 is in place as
approved at the last Branch Executive Committee Meeting.


Dennis said that he believes that we should place a strong emphasis on getting more people in
attendance and will address this at the meeting of the members. We should stress the need to
persuade existing members that we know to attend, to bring a potential new member or just a
friend to the next meeting.


NEW BUSINESS:


There was a discussion on better communications with members. As well as the newsletter we
need to send a reminder of the meeting. In the interest of better communications we need the
newsletter Editor, Ed Fernandez, to be in attendance at the meeting. It was agreed that the
timing of the newsletter should be changed. If it is issued on the 1st Thursday of the month this
will act as a more timely reminder of the upcoming monthly meeting.


Meeting adjourned at 10:43
