Teleconferencing- Stan Miller reported that the Finance Committee, which was requested by Ron Reynolds to look into teleconferencing, recommends that it be used on an as needed basis only.

Teleconferencing would only be used if a quorum was not going to be present. Governor-Elect Jeff Wolff said that the SLP”S use FreeConference.com. It is only paid for by the user if they pay for long distance calls.

The motion as amended passed.
Concerns of Governor Varner- (1) The CDKF is not adhering to its bylaws and policies-
(a) The President needs to appoint a fund raising committee of 5 members according to the policy statement. (b) Section 3d of the policies states that the President needs to appoint a review committee to review the performance of the secretary and treasurer.
(2) CDKF needs to send out requests to all clubs for donation to the Caring Corner
