Well, summer has arrived again and heat is on and a great time to be naked again outdoors!!

HHH General Assembly – Elections

Ahead of the Minutes of the General Assembly we held at the April party, there are a few items that I wanted to share, since who knows when I can get to the Minutes.  First and for most, nominations for club officers were announced with the opportunity for additional nominations from the floor was given, however only 1 nominee for each position was accepted or volunteered, therefore a motion was made to accept the nominees by acclamation, which means the nominees are elected without an official election for the 2022 – 2024 term.  Please note, there was no nominees for Certifying Officer, therefore the position is still vacant, and I will continue to be Acting Certifying Officer & Executive Secretary, for now.  Also, S.W volunteered to be the Newsletter Editor since there were no other nominees for that position either.

The 2022 – 2024 Officers are:

President – Wayne K.
Vice President – S.W.
Acting Certifying Officer/Executive Secretary – Wayne K.
Treasurer – Cristine B.
Membership Chair – Cheri B.
Hospitality Chair – Sylvia K.
Trustee – Sandy T.
Newsletter Editor – S.W.

Jerry D. again volunteered to be our Executive Director, as this is a position that is appointed by the Board.

The other important item that occurred was there was Proposed Amendments to the Standing Rules Document, that was suggested by Cheri, mostly involving prospective members, etc., basically describing the procedure as we are currently doing it, since there has been a change over time.  Essentially this doesn’t affect anyone, it just documents reality.  This amendment was approved by the Board, which we can do by a simple majority of the Board, unlike the By-laws that require a 2/3 vote of the full membership.  Attached is a copy of the Amended Standing Rules and is also posted on the HHH website.

Other information will be included in the Minutes of the Meeting.

April Party

What a great April party, albeit quite windy, that didn’t stop several of us from playing several games of Water Volleyball in the comfortable 90 deg water.  It was a little chilly getting out of the water (Grab that Towel), but everyone had a great time!!  Unfortunately, most of us had to eat inside, due to winds, otherwise our food would have ended up in the pool.  A new prospective couple Kevin & Lee, a Single Male Rodney E. and Thomas, also joined us.  Both Thomas, and Kevin and Lee were approved for membership during the party.

AANR-SW General Assembly

The AANR-SW Convention will be held at Star Ranch on June 10 – 11.  You will be receiving a proxy form by mail in case you are unable to attend.  There are several positions available on the Board, that we will be voting on, if there is a nominee. Both the President (Mitch) and myself as Vice President is now termed out,  so we are looking for other volunteers.

Voting is important, and you have options, Vote in Person, Assign your Vote to the Board, or Assign your vote to a person who is expected to attend, and you feel will vote on your behalf.  I plan to attend the meeting especially since I am Vice President, and I certainly will vote on HHH’s behalf as I have always done.  I have also attached a proxy form with my name and AANR number already filled in, if you so choose to allow me to vote on your behalf.  If you plan to attend the May Party on the 21st, I will have copies available to fill in and sign, otherwise if you can’t attend, please scan, and email it back or mail it back to me at 2227 Red Bird Lane, Pattison, TX 77423.  Your proxy also counts toward a quorum of the membership which is required to make the meeting official.
