3. Meeting Committee
Discussion was had regarding the meeting format. A suggestion was made to consider community meeting room, rinks or libraries. It was noted that each of these options presented challenges. Rinks are generally not available and charge fees, Library and Community meeting rooms are a challenge due to logistics and availability. Having an earlier start time or splitting the lunch time from the meeting time was also discussed. Teleconference meetings were also discussed. It was suggested that one meeting a year could be by teleconference. Such would require a change to the By-Laws to permit and that such meetings are often difficult in terms of participation. It was suggested that before making such a change, the organization do a trial teleconference meeting.
Motion by Sam Singer, 2nd by Veronica Nebb that the April 11, 2020 meeting be conducted via teleconference as a trial. The motion passed unanimously.

Discussion was had regarding whether the legacy fund should be placed into an interest-bearing fund. It was pointed out that the administrative costs of such a change would exceed interest earnings given current very low interest rates.
