Board Attendees: Uwe Krohn, Jim Braden, Tony Moore, Hal Goodell, Howard Stapleton and Bob Bowser , Gina Olson excused.


Uwe opened the meeting at 8:29 pm.

Minutes from the Oct. 8, 2015 meeting approved.


President’s Report:

Uwe suggested we dress up the bulletin board at the store to do a better job of catching people’s attention as it is not an automatic walk-by on the way into the store.  Uwe will contact Kalli to do a big picture of the NCC as an eye-catcher.  Jim stated that we need to update our brochure with new pictures.


Uwe states he had invited our State Representative, Michelle Caldier, to attend the December monthly Ficra Meeting but Caldier’s representative has called saying she is unavailable.  Uwe will check to see if another of our government representatives would be available.

Consent Calendar: Approved the allocation of $900 toward purchase of FICRA hoodies.
