2012 Annual Meeting Minutes


Minutes for SE KS Buying Club Annual Meeting

January 20, 2012

The meeting was called to order by Julia V at 8:30 am. She brought
forth an idea to separate Azure Standard from SEKSBC because it is its own thing and the club does not really need the money from their dues.

Deanna M made a motion to disband Azure from SEKSBC. After much discussion, the motion failed.

Deanna M made a new motion to amend the due structure for Azure
Standard only members from $12 annually to a donation for the building fund.
Margaret G seconded. Ayes 10 Nays 0 Motion passed.

The next order of business was discussion regarding the SEKSBC public blog. There was concern about having full names and/or email addresses listed on the blog due to its public nature. It was also discussed about having outside vendors become members of the club in order to have their
information listed upon the group blog, and that the blog be reformatted to
offer separate information regarding the individual ordering options of our
club.
Brandi M made a motion to revamp the SEKSBC blog to have an overview page, with separate pages for each individual section of the club, and that links for UNFI, Frontier, Azure, Albert’s Organics, and Facebook would be added to the blog.
April N seconded. Ayes 12 Nays 0 Motion passed.

Deanna M made a motion to offer the option to outside vendors to
become members in order to be listed on the SEKSBC public blog.
Margaret G seconded. Ayes 12 Nays 0 Motion passed.

Deanna M made a motion to remove any person’s full names, phone
numbers, or email addresses upon the blog. She also stated that we should use filled/open for any job postings, and that only first names would be listed on the blog unless otherwise requested.
April N seconded. Ayes 12 Nays 0 Motion passed.

The next item of business to discuss was about Albert’s organics. The
concerns were that the job had gotten too large for one person to do, and
that the future was uncertain if we could not find a new coordinator or
separate the jobs out.
Teresa C made a motion to drop the group bags in order to be able to still keep the produce option available within the club.
Rachel U seconded. Ayes 12 Nays 0 Motion passed.

The final order of business up for discussion before going into the jobs was
the dues structure for the club. There was much discussion as far as working members, non-working members, and the different factions of the club. The due structure was already amended for Azure Standard only members. The due structure for working members was not to be amended at this time, and was to stay the same at $12 annually.
Deanna M made a motion to change the due structures as follows.
Non-working member dues would change from $24 annually to $48 annually. She also stated that the club executive committee would handle any hardship pleas on a case-by-case basis.
Teresa C seconded. Ayes 12 Nays 0 Motion passed.

The job positions were now open (and filled) for the New Year. These can be viewed on the Yahoo Group for club members.

There is still a huge need for people to help with the distribution crew. At
least 2 people are needed to be on the Distribution Crew for Bulk Divide. At
least 3 people are needed to be on the Distribution Crew for UNFI. Staging
was not discussed at this meeting. Is this position now open?

Azure Standard ONLY Members – no annual dues – small donation for building fund. 25¢ per order or $3.00 annually.

Working Members – $12 annually

Meeting was adjourned by Julia V because the UNFI truck was here.
