8. Jonathan Campbell will not be at next meeting due to his business.

Jonathan Campbell discussed A/V Monitor Project.

9. Jonathan mentioned that the sky is the limit on what we want to do but we don’t want the cheapest equipment. We want reliable equipment. He’s looking at LG and Samsung. For three 75” monitors, 4K Samsung or LG, priced at about $1000.00 each. Also, three articulating mounts which run at about $175.00 each. He talked about cables and HDMI splitter needed.

He talked about the placement of Monitors in room.

10. Treasurer Ernie Sammons asked the Board what they thought before adding to budget. Should we wait until we get the membership surveys back. Registrar Tommy Cook added that we should put it on the survey as well as several Board members agreeing. Survey to ask, “Would you consider adding $5,000.00 to pay for A/V system”. (Hopefully we could come in at around $4075.00. $5,000.00 should cover all costs including electrician etc).
