OCTOBER COPY OF MINUTES TO NOVEMBER MEETING
Chairing the meeting is AIWA VP Carl Limping Bear Johnson. Attending officers are: Joaquin Sandoval, AIWA Treasurer- Event Coordinator and Roy Cook, AIWA Historian. With visitors and other members, this was a productive and happy meeting.
VP report: Carl said members have expressed difficulty in attending meetings at night. He will explore other possibilities to meet on the weekend and during the day.
Treasurer/Event Coordinator report: Joaquin said he received a check from the Dept of Education for AIWA Color guard duties in the amount of $250.00. Funds to be added to AIWA account.
There was a review of the AIWA bylaws for Executive session conditions. The meeting continued in Executive session with two officers attending.
Report from the Event coordinator/ Treasurer resulted in the following appointments: AIWA Secretary is open and Roy Cook is appointed for the remainder of the term.
The Sgt. At Arms has expressed his priorities are classes and family obligations with the Soaring Eagles. The position is open.
The present AIWA president has indicated that family obligations in Arizona will not allow him to complete the remainder of the term of office. The position is open.
What was seen, as a priority issue is our diminished membership and a lukewarm service and participation in local activities to the San Diego Urban and Rural community? We need to be out there and do better to improve the AIWA image. American Indian events were announced and information from the United Veterans Council was distributed for all to review.
JS: Activities with his extended family is his focus. His son is getting married in October. Life goes on!
WB: He was in Portland, Oregon for VA training and he had a chance to see his grandson while there. There will be a USMC birthday event at the La Jolla VA on Nov. 2 and the Camera club will host an event on Nov. 3.
RC: He said the Soaring Eagles have been a therapeutic involvement for him. The unconditional love from the kids has been an inspiration for the past two years.
CLB: He said he has been enjoying life with his grand kids. He was able to do a bit of recruiting for AIWA at the Miramar Air Show.
Finally, it is always a special time to be in the company of our brother in arms and it is a good meeting when people are laughing and smiling as they go out the door.
Meeting adorned 8:20pm. Next meeting November 3, 2010.
The AIWA membership was reminded of the service 7/24 offered by the americanindiansource.com calendar.
