Whew! We had a great day at the GCCA Swap Meet and our meeting afterwards. The goal of the day was to raise money to get the club going and to have our second meeting.
We raised almost $350 at the swap meet with the help of donations from manufacturers, members and Derek Walker, our speaker at the meeting.
At our meeting, Derek gave a great talk on CARES and the need for conservation as many of our favorite livebearers in Mexico are severely threatened.
In the business portion of the meeting, we formally passed our constitution and bylaws and elected an Executive Board. We also set dues for the club at $10 per individual and collected dues from 14 people.
So, we've got a good start. I'd like to thank Mike Schadle for auctioning at the meeting (always awesome). I also would like to thank the folks who stepped up to join the executive board:
We're thinking of booking our next meeting after the next GCCA Swap Meet on December 4th. Stay tuned!
