The meeting was held at
There was a question
regarding the possibility of our having to pay for police support for races in
the future, and Harold again briefly described our struggle with this issue
throughout the years as city administrations came and went. It was agreed that we needed to again be
ready if called upon to provide information regarding the monetary and tourism
benefits our races provide to the city.
The subject then moved to the Articles of Incorporation, and
David explained the changes that needed to be made in the Articles:
The Purpose statement in
Article III was reworded to include items that were not in existence in 1971
when the original Articles were drawn up and filed with the state of Alabama;
Article IV needed to be reworded to reflect the current membership classes; the
number of board members in Article VI needed to be increased to nine from the
original four members; and Article VIII and the first paragraph of Article III
were added to meet present IRS requirements. In addition, the original Articles contained
the name and address of Rod Kellogg as our Registered Agent, and are being
replaced by that of Harold Tinsley.
These changes were necessitated by our need to re-file for
Incorporation pursuant to our club move from the RRCA to the
AARC. It was moved (Malcolm Gillis) and
seconded (Loyd Doering) that we adopt the revised
Articles of Incorporation, and the motion was passed by unanimous vote of the
members in attendance.
Since there was no
further business, the meeting was turned over to our guest speakers from Nesin Therapy Services PC.
Michelle Nesin, Janine Nesin
and Cindy Martin presented an informative talk on body alignment, and we
experienced an interactive session in which we learned how to achieve optimal
form for increased power and decreased fatigue and risk of injury. The meeting adjourned at
