Board of Directors Meeting 

Conference Call 

Monday, June 8, 2015 

Members Present: Kristy Ambrosen, Jenn Crist, Scott Franko, Carol Kosisko, Kim Stout, Mia Trimboli, Vince Von Der Vellen, Ron Wiseman, and Bob Woods. 

Spring/Summer Events: 

Summer Golf & Dinner Outing – Kim Stout and Vince Von Der Vellen has planning the outing for Monday, June 15 at Juday Creek. Registration is very low at this point (only enough for 2 teams). Reasons for the low interest was discussed (schools in session until June 6, Chamber outing the next Monday, etc.). It was decided to postpone the outing until July. Kim will check with Juday Creek to see if Monday, July 20 is available, as the beginning of Fair week has worked well in the past. Carol will contact those who have registered for golf and/or dinner and let them know of the change in date. 

Elkhart 4-H Fair Outing – The 4-H Fair outing is Saturday, July 25, 2015. This year’s concert will be Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Carol has requested the Charlie Cardinal suit, and will keep Kristy updated on ticket purchases so that tickets can be mailed weekly from the Fair office. Ten guests are registered to date. 

Fall Outings: 

Wine & Beer Tasting – Samantha Adamczewski is working on a Friday in October at Morris Park. The venue worked well for the Admitted Student Reception and will be a nice, new venue for the Wine & Beer Tasting. More details to follow. Carol has already sent a Fall Events flyer request to University Communications. We will just need to follow up with the new dates, venues, and price. 

Bus/Shopping Trip – The Bus Shopping Trip to Woodfield Mall is Saturday, November 7, 2015. Jenn Crist and Gail Jaskowiak are chairing the event. Jenn will confirm the 37 passenger bus for this year. Information on the bus trip will be included in the Fall Outings flyer. 

Next Meeting – The next meeting will be our Fall dinner meeting. A date will be set in the next few weeks.
