Minutes from the January 9, 2018 meeting were approved.
No board members reported having a conflict of interest with any agenda item.
Treasurer’s update: January financial statements were circulated to the board.
Wildflower Update: Registrations are a little behind last year with about 700 registered. Facebook, emails, and Bike SLO County will be used for publicity over the upcoming months. Will will have rack cards printed and board members will help place them in bike shops and other public places. Dave noted that we have about ½ the volunteers necessary and need multiple rest stop captains.
Internal Control Officer report: Judy reported that she and Bill are still working on getting her bank account access.
Club Express is still under study as a membership software. Will is looking at some specific issues and has concluded that a single source software is unlikely to meet all the club’s needs.
DMV regulations and safety issues: A committee is working on developing a list of regulations that would be helpful to share with members. A condensed League of American Cyclists safety tutorial will be presented as part of several of the club’s group rides.
Green Drinks: The club is still coordinating with ECOSLO on setting up a joint program. Date and content is still to be determined.
Anholm Bikeway: By electronic vote the board approved a modified endorsement of the proposal. The modification expressed concern with the safety implications of a bi-directional cycle track crossing in front of so many residential driveways and the divisive nature of the issue. The bikeway was briefly discussed at the meeting.
The board approved having a local attorney (J. Diehl) review a liability waiver to be used with rest stop property owners. The waiver is an insurance requirement. (MSC: Robison, Abrecht)
The board approved a $500 contribution (from the unplanned requests budget) to the Santa Rosa Cycling Club to help rebuild and restock their shed that was destroyed in the recent fire (MSC: Abrecht, Price).
The board approved a budget item of up to $1,000 for royalties for jersey images for each of our fundraising rides. The expenditure would be subject to the ride leader’s approval (MSC: Broome, Robison).
Dave will explore the possibility of the club donating a bike rack to be placed in front of Cayucos Coffee.
The meeting adjourned at approximately 5:35 pm.
Jack Robison, Secretary
