Annual Meeting


The meeting will begin with a short business meeting, which will serve as the Round Table’s required annual meeting.  A short financial statement for the activities of the organization, covering the period from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, will be provided at the meeting.  The Secretary-Treasurer’s law firm will request approval to be reimbursed for the small amount of postage required to mail newsletters to the few members who do not have email addresses; from January, 2017, to June 30, 2019, this total postage reimbursement request is $26.16 (the postage is normally between $3.00 and $4.00 each month.  Finally, officers will be elected for the coming year.  The current President (Craig Schneider), Vice President (Neal Nelson), and Secretary-Treasurer (Steve Guenzel) have all served for several years and will stand for reelection, though nominations from the floor will be accepted.
