February 15, 2022 Board Meeting

The TvCAS executive board met via ZOOM at 6:00 pm.

Present were:  Nick Morgan, President, Heather Leonard, secretary, Caitlin Gulihur, treasurer, Ken Headrick, member at large, Leslie Bush, communications

The board met to discuss the proposed budget for 2022. President Nick Morgan suggested decreasing the amounts budgeted for lab work and discretionary funds.  He suggested making the proposed budget visible to the members during the monthly meeting that evening, and posting it on the website so that suggestions could be made until the following monthly meeting when it could be voted on.

President Nick Morgan gave an update on progress toward securing a venue for the 2023 TAS annual meeting. To date, the Embassy Suites in San Marcos has been the focus of efforts. However, the prospects of securing that site appear to be low, as the meeting space for the final weekend in October of 2023 have already been rented out. The weekend prior is competing with the American Gran Prix. Nick suggested that the society may have to look at alternate venues.

President Nick Morgan informed the board that two people have responded to the FaceBook post, inquiring about volunteering for the upcoming TAS Academy in April.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:17.
