Presidents Message August 10, 2015

This is a Called meeting of The Georgia Gourd Society via e-mail as of August 5, 2015.  This meeting is called to pass a motion made by Karin Anderson and seconded by Charlotte Durrence.  

The motion reads as follows:
 Ellen, as we have had slow participation and less than optimal responses from some GGS members, I motion that we make an amendment to the By-Laws letting us vote to pass the budget and other pertinent things to the running of the society by a vote of 15 members or more with votes being sent to the President via e-mail.
> Sincerely,Karin Anderson

This motion was posted at the end of May on the Georgia Gourd Society and then was seconded by Charlotte Durrence via e-mail.

The motion to accept the amendment to the By-Laws which was posted on the web site has been voted on and passed by 18 of our members.  

Karin Anderson our secretary has a record of all votes.  This motion has been accepted by our members and will be posted on the website. The voting is now closed.

We need additional trained judges and informed members. 
If you are auditing the class to learn more about our judging methods, there is no cost.  The class is free to everyone who wants to attend.  If you plan to attend, notify Reggie Eakin so he can e-mail you the class materials to read in advance of the class.

If you take the class to be a certified judge you will need to pay $15.00 to cover the costs of making and mailing the badge to your home.  You must be a current member of the American Gourd Society to receive credit for this class. The Judge Certification Class will be led by Reggie Eakin and Troy Tatum.
