  1.   President’s Corner (Mr. Grant Bartee)

  3.   Treasurer’s Report (Ms. Jennifer Russell / Mr. Joe DiMisa)

           Joe reported October expenses and income as well as summary of the profits from
            the Round Table. A correction was made to the profit for the Round Table –
            changed from $1,278.46 to $2878.46. See attached report.

           He reported that our budget is on track for year and we are on track to stay fluid
            through the regional. The group discussed and then asked the treasurer to look at
            a long term investment strategy, perhaps a money market fund or an annuity type

           Committee Chairs were asked to develop their budget needs for next year and let
            Jennifer or Joe know

       Committee Reports

       Membership (Ms. Kim Duncan)
        Kim reported that the post has 26 students and 127 individual memberships.
         There are also 212 sustaining, members for a total of 348. We are still 6 short of
   our goal with only a month left in the year. Additionally, there are 50 sustaining

Sustaining Membership (Ms. Rose O’Grady)
 No report

Programs (Mr. Michael Kerr / Mr. Jeff Leonard)
 Mike Kerr passed out the agenda for the November meeting and noted that the
   announcements would include information on the Holiday Social, the 2010
   Conference, our newest Fellow – Dr. Goltz, and the need for science fair judges
   and ACE mentors. BAH is the sustaining member presentation.
 Mike said he is investigating the possibility of getting a Kittyhawk Post Coin
   made and the action was supported by the executive board.
 There is still a critical need for someone to accomplish the lunch planning
   activities Jeff Leonard has been working. For this month only Ryan Schlosser
   will ensure the planning for the meeting is completed.

Education/Scholarships/Science Fairs (Dr. Mark Goltz)
 No report.
Industry Affairs (Mr. John Koerner)
 Ken Stegall provided a closing report on the Round Table. All but 3 presentations
   are on the web site, there were over 60 attendees plus 20 speakers/facilitators.
   There were issues with the room at the Hope, but those were resolved and the
   Liberty Room worked. The event made approximately $2900 in profit. There
   were 5 exhibitors at the social but turnout was light, with limited attendance from
   the BCE conference. All comments received were positive.
 With the 2010 Conference next year, it is likely that we may not have a Round
   Table next year.
 Kim asked the post to consider getting credit card capabilities including a swipe
   machine for events like these and asked if the treasurer could evaluate. Reg on
   Line offered through National is an option but registration must be done in
   advance and it costs $3 per transaction. It is possible obtaining credit card
   capabilities for the post is too expensive for the limited use and we’ll just need to
   continue to publicize the post does not accept credit cards at the door.

Readiness (Capt Aaron Cooper)
 The streamer submission is due the end of January but actions must be completed
   by December. There is a need for 2 more people to complete the required IFMA
   training. Ryan Schlosser will see if he has already completed or if anyone in the
   88 ABW/CE has completed.
 Additionally a replacement is need for Chief Walsh, please be trying to identify a

 Mike proposed to have the Holiday Social December 3, at El Toro’s. Appetizers

        approved and will have their monthly meeting at El Toro’s at 16:00 prior to the

     Young Members (Capt Seth Platt)
     No report.

     College Outreach (Nichole Lashley / Travis Burr)
      A meeting with SAME and ASCE at Ohio State University will be held next
        week, to determine if there is interest in perusing student involvement from the
      It was asked if there was a student roster available for the chapter. Kim said she
        could pull a list of student members from the membership files, but it would be
        limited because students still need to complete the application process to be
        identified as a member.

     K-12 (Ms. Laura Schwarz / Mr. Ryan Schlosser)
      Ryan reported that the STEM school is still looking for Mentors for 3 High
        School students from Dayton and Springfield public schools under the Area
        Coalition for Engineer Excellence (ACEE) program. Kim Duncan repeated her
        firm may still have some coupons available for basic training classes could
        sponsor students to attend perhaps using surplus coupons purchased at the
        beginning of each year.
