Happy Spring! I think that it is really here. Our club has been enjoying a busy April. There is more fun and excitement in the next few weeks.
Seven of us attended the Region 4 Meeting in Mt. Pleasant. We heard from the international representative and heard reports from the club presidents. It is always interesting to hear what the other clubs do. The focus for the regional meeting was the 2020 International Convention which will be in Grand Rapids. There are some fun side trips planned before and after the convention for those who want to explore Michigan. There will be Quotarians coming from all over the world. Even if you have never attended a convention I hope that you will consider this one. It will be so easy for us, and it will help us to have a better understanding of the Quota mission and organization.
At the business meeting in April, the club approved the revised bylaws. My thanks to the committee who worked on this project. The revised bylaws more accurately reflect the way we are now conducting business. For example, the provision terminating members for non-attendance was deleted.
At our last two program meetings, we have been talking about Quota projects from the 1980s to the present. The trip down memory lane was fun, and the process gave me a better understanding of the evolution of the Flint club.
At the May business meeting, the nominating committee will present the slate of officers. The induction of the new board will take place at the program meeting in May.
It has been an honor to serve as your president. I hope that the club has benefited from my service. I am looking forward to seeing you at the meetings.
Yours in Quota,
Carolyn Boegner
