February 28, 2012
The February Executive Board convened February 28, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at Gilligan’s.
Alan Lesher gave the Treasurer’s Report and said he and Markus Houser will have to set up the PayPal account to be able to use PayPal services, which will take place shortly.
Steve Limbert, RE made the motion that: The autocross committee will consider and have the authority to approve and implement appropriate changes to our autocross event policies and procedures.
The Executive Board hereby authorizes the Regional Executive to incur the expenses and execute such contracts and other instruments that are necessary in order to routinely operate our autocross events.
The Executive Board reserves the right to review, for approval or disapproval, such proposed expenditures that are defined by the Executive Board as not routine. Dave Walter seconded the motion.
In discussion, three points were questioned:
- What is the authority of the Autocross Committee?
- Who has the authority for day-to-day costs?
- Who has the control/monitoring of those costs?
The motion passed unanimously.
The Executive Board was turned over to Greg Hagan, Autocross Committee Chairman at 7:37 p.m.
