Discussion was held about the Annual Meeting, of 20 June 2008.  All agreed that it was to long in nature, should eliminate the number of speakers.   Discussion was held about the timing of the Annual Meeting.  The By-laws state the Annual Meeting is to be held on the third Friday of June each year.

Motion by J. Pederson, second by M. Quale that the Board of Directors experiment with the Annual Meeting for 2009, holding it on the third Saturday in the a. m. to see if this would improve attendance.  Motion was approved.  The annual meeting for June 2009 will be held Saturday morning at a time to be decided later.   T. Frazee will check to see if the Bible Camp is available for that Saturday morning.

Discussion was held about the motion of the annual meeting to send "electronic" issues of the Green Lake Breeze which would lower the Printing/postage cost.  After discussing the above issue, the Board feels that all issues of the Green Lake Breeze are on the Web Page; therefore any person(s) who wish to not receive the "hard copy" is to let the Executive Secretary know so the issue will not be mailed out to them.  In coming President G. Roverud will address this in his PRESIDENTS NOTE on the front page.

Discussion was held about the Green Lake Breeze, number of issues each year.  The Board felt we should leave it as is.  Board members were told that all Board Meetings are on the Web Page, plus all past board meetings, plus all past issues of the Green Lake Breeze, post cards, and committees of the Board.
