Kathy Lyles Holds First Board Meeting as New Chapter President
Kathy Lyles, the incoming Fredericksburg Chapter president, successfully headed her first board meeting on January 19. Other board members attending were Mary Frances Watson, Ric McCormick, Linda Ross, and John Huecksteadt.
Perhaps, the most important agenda item was to discover how much money it takes to run the chapter each year. Kathy wants to keep our finances lean. She also expressed the desire to concentrate more on education, especially in the local schools, in the coming year.
Kathy and the board are busy recruiting able volunteers to head up some of the chapter committees like Membership, Communications, and Education. If you feel you can help, please step up.
Our secretary, Mary Frances Watson, actually took minutes in shorthand! She can do it in Spanish, too, should the need arise.
