Draft SAQF 2016/2017 Membership Meeting Plan

Please provide input on meeting plan to Zack May at zmay@comcast.net

  1.  Meeting objectives.  Conduct chapter business in an inclusive transparent manner.  Share information through respectful communication and quality speakers.  Build a positive social foundation for the chapter.  Speaker plan for year will be shown on website by September meeting.
  2.  When.  Third Thursday of each month at 7:00-8:30PM.  Monthly from September through Mar and bi-monthly May-Sep.
  3.  Where.  TBD.  Steak Out in Sonoita is great for social aspects but a challenge for formal presentations due to noise level.  Potential options include Vail Steakhouse off I10 and Highway 83,  Stage Stop Inn in Patagonia or something in Nogales or Green Valley.  I am looking for recommendations on other venues to consider and the impact of moving out of Sonoita from the participation perspective.  We could also move the meeting to different venues through the year if the group prefers.  I believe we want a place that serves food and drink, other wise we will have to pay rent.

4.  Typical meeting flow.  Call to order, pledge of allegiance, introduction of guests and new attendees, review minutes and action items from last meeting, announcements, treasurer report, committee reports, call for new business, speaker and adjournment.  Social time is available before and after the formal meeting.  Meeting minutes will be added to the website within 10 days.
