Motion to accept Tom Tincher and Tom Lawson as members of the year for Lifetime nomination in the the DCBA
presented by Andy Willard, seconded by Marvin Driggers. Motion passed.

B.J. suggested that we change the way Member of the Year nomination and assignment is handled to make it more
compliant with standard practices. The change would allow any member to submit a written request to nominate
a member for the award. The Executive committee will also evaluate members they feel worthy of the award and
choose an eligible member as the Member of the Year for announcement at the November monthly meeting.
An informal vote was taken to determine if there was enough interest to pursue the change which is governed by
the By-Laws. All members present were in agreement to move forward with the change, therefore, the formal
process will proceed which includes advance written notification to all members and an official vote.

Adjourn: 8:41 pm
