Old Business:  


Regarding missing more than 3 meetings in a row, a work related absence is excused if the member provides notice and finds a replacement for their role.

Club specifics: Currently the club is at the maximum number of members which is 35.  If a member misses more than 3 meetings in a row that is not related to travel, illness, or business that member will moved to the inactive list. If a member is unable to attend a meeting it is the member’s responsibility to find a replacement. Remember to fill your role if you are unable to attend.Once the inactive member returns to meetings the member will be admitted before the guests if there is a waitlist at that time.

It is important to keep our introductions, invocation, toast, educational minute and joke, short.
