However, following the vote there was a great deal of discussion on how to better define the categories of contribution, e.g., large organization v. individuals. No conclusion reached and it is still under consideration.
Additional discussion followed regarding recognition awards for organizations or individuals.
As a result, because of their service to veterans, a motion was made and seconded that the Kitchen Table Gang be awarded $200.00. A second motion was made and seconded that the outgoing chairman, Blake, (Bear), Proctor be awarded a NASAA polo shirt, a plaque and a five year free membership. Both motions passed unanimously.
VI. PX Transition: Some discussion as to whether we should outsource the PX function or keep it in house. Primary issue is need for better communication between board members involved with PX and membership. Phil Hogle volunteered to continue as the S-4, and the PX will continue as an in house function.
