May 2011 and June 16, 2011 BOD meeting
A motion was made and seconded to accept the minutes from the Annual Meeting
and the June BOD meeting as emailed.
2. Treasurer's Report
made just a bit more than last year. A
discussion was held to determine if we should be part of NEAF again next year
with the consensus that it would be a good idea. A motion was made and seconded to be part of
NEAF in 2012.
check for the sponsorship for The Big E has been sent, but Green Mountain has
not. There have been two deposits for
the DCU already paid, but nothing for the panels yet. A motion was made and seconded to accept the
Treasurer's report as presented to the Board.
3. Status of Action Items
certification for NEAC has come in.
is working with Jack Dibb to complete the details for the vet seminar. The topics mentioned were ophthalmology,
problem breeders, neonatal issues, orthopedics, anesthetizing alpacas and
alternative medicine (acupuncture/Eastern medicine practices). The topic is more important than the
presenter. We should be able to find two or three vets from New England who are
leaders in their field and see if they would be interested in doing the
seminar. Cheryl will check with her
vet about acupuncture, as he has been certified in large and small animal
acupuncture. Matt will try to get back
to us in 2 weeks with a possible agenda.
We discussed whether the seminar should be held for one or two
days. It is possible to do a one day
seminar with a switch of topics from morning and afternoon. The object is to keep the price attractive
and topic(s) interesting for both vets and breeders. Matt will check on the credit part of the
seminar and let us know what he finds out at the next meeting.
of State Rep picnics
picnic dates are all set with the exception of MA. Barbie and Cheryl will check with Jim
Forster to get a definite date and time.
The reps will give Barbie and Pam a list of attendees after they get
RSVPs. Bill will be attending VT, NY,
and NH. Barbie hopes to attend both NH
and ME. Matt and Lennie will attend the
the MA and Pam will go to NH and possibly CT.
was nothing new for marketing.
current information about upcoming events was covered in the earlier part of
was covered with the discussion about the vet seminar.
7. Membership Report
was nothing new to discuss about membership this month.
8. Other Business
discussed using the candidate statements from May's election to look at new
ideas to make us a stronger group. Barbie will see if anyone who has suggested
something might want to volunteer to chair a committee and work with us as well. We are open to any ideas that anyone has for
us, but if they have a problem with what we are doing, hopefully they will also
have a solution on how to fix it or a way to do it better. Barbie will give an encapsulated version of
these ideas by email for the next meeting.
next meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 7:30 P.M.
adjourned at 8:40 P.M.
