The chapter met at 0900 hours, 9 November 2013, at the Olympic Restaurant in Belleville, with seven members in attendance. Secretary’s Report: Reviewed August minutes. We did not meet in September (Annual AFSFA) and October due to vacations and planned absences. August minutes approved. Treasurer’s Report: - Dave Devine.
We have $799.00 in our checking account and $21.14 in savings at the Scott Credit Union. We have 12 Chapter coins available at $10.00 each. We discussed purchasing additional coins from the same supplier to avoid a set up charge with other companies. Dave Devine is getting a quote for another order of coins. We have 12 T-shirts for sale. Black (L-4) and White (L-7, XL-1). Contact Jim Nickles Membership Chairman’s Report: We will continue to work at collecting the 2013 dues. We have 17 paid chapter members. Our $100 donation to the Annual Meeting Golf Tournament was well received and appreciated. I forgot to bring up a motion to donate $200.00 to the AFSFA project to provide large framed photos
of the career field history to be permanently displayed in a Camp Bullis classroom. The photos will be expertly framed with memorabilia and photos depicting the eras of our career field, from WWII to current events. We welcomed Richard Harmon to the meeting. Richard is both a retired SP CMSgt and an intelligence special agent with AFOSI. We had a great discussion of his career in both security police and AFOSI. With the passing of the Illinois citizen concealed carry and the LEOSA, we had another discussion on CCW for our members. The next meeting is set for 14 December 2013; however I will be out of town, so members need to provide feedback on two options:
Meet on 7 December, a week earlier.
Meet on 21 December, a week later.
