VI. New Business – We are making a priority to work with the city and others to help create a position for a person being hired to facilitate and instruct and run the existing small boat program. Steve Orsini created a job description and will review with the city. Board job descriptions were shared and discussed for upcoming elections at the December meeting. It was approved for a trial of Quickbooks in the Cloud. Bruce B will work with everyone to secure that program. This will facilitate invoicing for the yard and email notices for meetings and biling. We will be voting on new board members next month and everyone was asked to help with finding nominees or volunteering themselves.
