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.

a long term investment strategy, perhaps a money market fund or an annuity type

Sustaining Membership (Ms. Rose O’Grady)
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)
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
Social (Mr. Mike Howe)
Mike proposed to have the Holiday Social December 3, at El Toro’s. Appetizers
would be provided by the post from 17:30 to 20:00. The Executive Board
approved and will have their monthly meeting at El Toro’s at 16:00 prior to the
Young Members (Capt Seth Platt)
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.
