HTC Executive Board Meeting


1 October 2012


Board Members Present:  Eric Fritz (President), Harold Tinsley (VP – Communications), Brandi Hough (VP – Programs), Dink Taylor (VP – Races & Equipment), Joey Butler (Secretary), Kathy Youngren (Treasurer), Jim Oaks (Appointed Member – Past Board Member) and Suzanne Taylor (Appointed Member – Co- Rocket City Marathon Director).


The Huntsville Track Club held an executive board meeting on Monday October 1, 2012 at the Taylor’s home.  Eric opened the meeting at 5:30pm.  The following topics were discussed:


Joe Francica has stepped down as director of the Autumn Chase.  Discussions were held about a new director for this race.  Suzanne motioned and Jim seconded appointing Greg Reynolds as the new director for the Autumn Chase.  The motion passed unanimously.


The next topic dealt with the HTC Awards banquet.  Due to a conflict on the normal date for this event (2nd Tuesday of November), Brandi made a motion and Joey seconded that the awards be held on Thursday November 15th.  The motion passed unanimously.


Held a brief discussion about the upcoming race director’s meeting.  No date has been set as of yet, but we are looking to have one this fall.


The ALS foundation has expressed interest in getting HTC support for a David McKannan Race.  The board briefly discussed this.  Eric and Suzanne were meeting with the ALS Foundation on Wednesday to further discuss possible HTC support for the event.  (Post meeting note – this meeting did occur and Michelle Savage of the ALS Association is coming to the next HTC board meeting to discuss further).


Lastly, the board discussed the headphone policy and how to enforce it.  The board decided that we would like inputs from the race directors and will bring up this topic when we have the race director’s meeting later this fall.


With no other business, the meeting adjourned.
