Next month's EAA Chapter 87 meeting will involve nomination of Chapter Officers.
Vice President DJ Merrill brought up the concept of migrating EAA Chapter 87's website from DJ's personal web server to the EAA National web server as this is offered to all EAA Chapters nationwide. Discussion ensued to weigh the pros and cons of making this major change in hosting the Chapter's Webpage and also about posting online a physical address for snail mail and a generic email address for emails coming in from the general public.
President Charlie Gabelmann indicated that he was okay with having his personal address posted on the Chapter website for snail mail. As regards those emails coming in to the Chapter's generic email address, discussion followed with the suggestion that Chapter Officers could be forwarded those emails for proper response and distribution which would be done internally so as to not have each Chapter Officer's personal email addresses posted online.
A motion was made, then seconded and then passed overwhelmingly to authorize DJ Merrill to migrate Chapter 87's website from deej.net to the EAA National web hosting platform and follow the above suggested snail mail and email posting protocols.
Jerry Crute spoke about his experiences taking photographs of a Vintage Beaver Bush Plane.
