Sunday, July 15 at Penn College, in Williamsport, the board and officers met for their annual meeting. While we did meet, a quorum of board members could not attend. This meant that any official business would have to wait until such time as numbers were sufficient. Even so, the board and officers were still able to work through some procedural things and have some valuable discussion.

The reason that a quorum of board the board members was not present were several: two members had to stay home because of health concerns, one of those was last minute, one member had to take a family member to the hospital prior to leaving for the conference, and one member of the board has not been in contact with the officers or board members for about a year and a half.

If you look on the website you will see all of the board and officers that represent you, the members, along with short biographies. Re-elected at this year’s conference were Tim Isaac from High River AB, and Rick Martineau from Black Diamond AB. Newly elected this year was Louie Longhi from Chicago. Jason Bronsther of Western Quebec also ran for a board position, and because of his willingness to serve, the board voted to appoint Jason to the position vacated by the missing board member for the remainder of that term, which is until next summer. This vote took place Friday morning at the beginning of the official board meeting when a quorum was present.

Highlights coming out of the meeting were the slight tweak of the Conference name to NACAT Conference and Expo, to emphasize the importance of our tradeshow partners, and the abolishment of NACAT Education Foundation. With the elimination of the foundation, scholarships will continue to be administered by a committee under the direction of the board. There will be more information on the changes as we move forward, so stay tuned to the NACAT News and the e-News.

If you are not receiving the News or the e-News, make sure to contact the office and update your contact information.

Jim Voth, Secretary
