NATIONAL ARMY SECURITY AGENCY ASSOCIATION
Minutes from the March 8, 2001 Board of Directors meeting
I. The meeting was called to order at 2110 by Chairman Blake (Bear) Proctor
II. Roll call was taken by the Chairman. Present were: Wayne Atwell, Phil Hogle, William Luker,
Lon Mitchell, Blake Proctor, and Charlie Ziehl. The editor of the Antenna Field, Gary Boucher,
was also present.
III. Approval of prior minutes: The motion was made by Wayne Atwell and seconded by Phil Hogle that the minutes be accepted as submitted. The motion carried unanimously.
IV. Financial Statement: The treasurer reported that there is $4,662.81 in the NASAA account.
The disclosure of this amount generated a great deal of discussion dealing with the following points: amount much less than expected, existence of paper trail, explanation of amount by R. Chilson. The amount reported is net of the $2,200.00 contributed to the Benavidez Foundation.
(Bill Jacobson signs in at 2134).
Additional financial related discussion on: Wayne Atwell going to Idaho to discuss account with Chilson-not needed (no motion made); day to day expenses (not a current problem); website maintenance (not a current problem); request from Wayne Atwell to Gary Boucher for estimated Antenna Field expenses.
Phil Hogle released information on PX inventory and we appear to be well stocked on most items.
(The list is not presented in the minutes-contact Phil Hogle for a complete rundown).
Wayne Atwell raised issue related to future re-enlistments in NASAA: who are current members, when did they first join and for how long? We must know roster in order to stay a viable organization.
The issue of membership cards came up: Wayne says we have enough in treasury to provide inexpensive cards, and Gary says he can include in next issue of Antenna Field to save postage.
Bill Luker moved that we table further discussion on finances, issues with Chilson, membership roster, etc., until next Board of Directors meeting. Seconded by Charlie Ziehl. Passed by 6 - 1.
IV. NASAA website update: Phil noted that routine maintenance, repair of broken links, correcting E-mail addresses, etc., the work goes on.
V. Old Business: The Benavidez Project
(a) Colorado Project: discussion on status of landscaping, placement of memorial plaque and responsibility thereof. It's a Colorado responsibility, not ours. We comment, that's it.
(b) Launching of USS Benavidez in New Orleans in July (?) Someone from NASAA will be invited to attend.
(c) Benavidez Foundation. Confusion still reins in Texas. Flak from Special Forces representative adds to confusion. Bill Luker offers to suppress flak. To be continued.
VI. New Business:
(a) Face to face Board of Director meetings. Discussion on subject was unfocused. Wayne asked that his suggestion be removed from the table. Motion passed 5-2.
(b) New NASAA Chat Room. Bill Luker moved that we table the issue until we get basics of website routine operations flattened. Phil Hogle seconded. Passes 6-1
