SFAAS December Meeting (12/6/14 @ 4:30)

Postby iced98lx » Sun Nov 30, 2014 10:10 pm

We're having a meeting for all in December, graciously hosted by Matt at Sioux Falls Aquatics. We'll talk club shop (financials, events, etc) as well as meet & greet for anyone who wants to come hang out. Great opportunity to meet fellow fish nerds, get more involved in the club, share ideas for meetings and events, and pick the brains of experienced salt and freshwater aquarium people.

When: Saturday 12/6/14 @ 4:30
Where: Sioux Falls Aquatics (811 E. 50th St. North, Sioux Falls)
RSVP: https://sfaas.eventbrite.com/ (it lets us know how many to plan for)

See you there!

Outcomes

Meetings:

January 17th: 7:00 at Cherry Creek Bar and Grill (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Cherr ... K0BEPwSMAo) - Meet and greet! Come meeting members, introduce yourself, enjoy good food and chat about tanks! Assuming we have 10 people or more at the meeting we'll be raffling off a $25 gift card to either Mini Critters or Sioux Falls Aquatics (Winners choice!). We'll also be planning the April meeting at this meeting, so bring your ideas about what you might want to see, or share with the club.

February 21st: 4:00 at Sioux Falls Aquatics or Members Home (TBD) - Salt Water Basics. Come and learn more about the equipment, husbandry and process that goes into a saltwater tank. A variety of experienced members will be present to discuss questions and basics. If you have ever wanted to know more about basic or advanced setups and equipment, come to this meeting! Don't have a saltwater tank and considering it? This one is especially for you. We'll also be planning the May meeting at this meeting.

March 21st: 10:00 AM -> 4:00 PM Aquatic Swap at The Butterfly House - An invitation for local hobbyists to come sell and trade Coral, Fish, Invertebrates,Plants and equipment. RSVP will be required for space to sell. This is a great way to stock your tanks! Looking especially for local freshwater breeders, plant trimmings and coral frags from locals. Plenty of good discussion to be had! We'll also be planning the June meeting at this event.

Other Business
  • Members present voted to join MASNA (http://masna.org/). The membership is $50 and entitles us to listing on their website and a option for a $300 reimbursement for a speaker at a future event.
  • It was decided that work needs to be put in to get the memberships up to date (and alert those who have expired to renew). I will be undertaking this over the coming weeks. We'll also look into a membership management piece of software to automate it.
  • It was voted to remove real time chat from the website due to non-use.
  • It was decided that current board members would be audited and those no longer wishing to participate would be removed. No further action would be taken on the board for the time being.

Good meeting, great to see everyone, thanks to Matt for hosting!

Here was our meeting board. Put this together so we could visualize on the events planned in the past to help up us for the future. Goes back to when we started the new site from the forum. Thought it would be perdy neat to see and share.
