Board Notes

Jerry Hess reported on "Running To Win." The luncheon was excellent, press coverage was good and the comments and evaluations were uniformly great. Recommendations were for the next Running To Win to have a bud-get for an informational packet and that there be an evaluation form.

Dee Lum reported that membership is at 269 and 23 former members have rejoined as a result of the Former Member Campaign. She suggests that the League needs a formal membership brochure and asks that it be considered as a budget item next year.

Jean Aoki reported on meeting basic human needs. The group met with the Deans of four colleges in October and plan on two more meetings with different people on December 3 and January 7, 1988. Meetings are for committee members and anyone else who is interested. On December 12 they will provide two of the speakers for the Christmas luncheon, one from the college and one from the business community. January 16, 1988 consensus committee break-fast meeting is at the Pagoda Restaurant from 8-10:30 a.m.

Jean also reports that the Christmas General Membership luncheon meeting will be at the Outrigger Canoe Club from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on December 12. Cost is $6.00 per person. Program Planning will be conducted in the a.m.

Channel 20, Katie Loew, reports that they are filming two shows on Constitutional issues on Saturday, November 14, from 9--12:45 a.m. Jeff Portnoy is the guest producer and the speakers will be Ed Bybee and Paul Austin. The first program will be on the constitution and abortion with reference to the Planned Parenthood Clinic. The second show will be on the Constitution and religion in reference to the Camp Smith Cross.

The Arnold Morgado show was quite a hit with a big newspaper article and a request from a T.V. station for a tape of the show. Suggestion was made that in the future we interview other council members and that we do this by interviewing all of them without favoring one over another.

Dorothy Murdock reported that the next regularly scheduled meeting of the council is 11/18 with committees meeting on the 24th and 25th. Regular meeting of the council will be held on 12/2 and then it will re-main quiet until after the first of the year.

Dee Lum suggested an increase in membership dues. After discussion it was tabled until figures are presented on actual cost of membership administration to determine the deficit from the current dues structure.

Jerry Hess reported that she will be re-signing from the Board effective immediately, thus someone will need to take over Voter Services Committee.

New member appointed to the Board is Jana Chang.
