Meeting of January 20, 2021
Guan Yang K6UAN, as station trustee, opened the meeting, which had been called for noon, at 12:10, in the absence of a President.
Present at the meeting were Stephen Lynch KD2DCO, E. Lee and Guan Yang K6UAN.
The meeting determined that the members of the Club are Stephen Lynch KD2DCO, E. Lee and Guan Yang K6UAN, Robby O'Connor KD2GJQ and Justin Levinson KD2DCO, based on the Club's minutes and the membership roster on the Hack Manhattan Wiki, excluding members who are no longer members of Hack Manhattan. Since 3 of the 5 members were present, a majority being required for a quorum, the meeting was deemed quorate.
Guan Yang K6UAN noted that the Club no longer had a president, as David Reeves K2DCR was no longer a member of Hack Manhattan and therefore no longer a member of the Club, and the meeting proceeded to election of a president.
Stephen Lynch KD2DCO was elected President of Hack Manhattan Amateur Radio Club by acclamation.
There being no other questions to consider, the meeting ended at 12:20.
Minutes by: Guan Yang K6UAN, Station Trustee of K2HMH.
Meeting of April 27, 2021
Minutes by: Guan Yang K6UAN
The meeting was called to order by Stephen Lynch KD2DCO, president, at 7:12pm.
Present at the meeting were Stephen Lynch KD2DCO, Chaz Antonelli KA2POE, E. Lee, Robby O'Connor KD2GJQ and Guan Yang K6UAN. The chair deemed the meeting quorate because 5 of the 6 members were present.
Guan Yang K6UAN reported that we were unable to make Chaz station trustee because a minimum license level of Technician is required. He proposed finding a way to make Stephen Lynch KD2DCO trustee instead. That would require someone else being the officer who appoints him. The meeting discussed this situation.
Stephen Lynch KD2DCO resigned his position as officer of the Club but continued to preside over the meeting.
E. Lee and Guan Yang K6UAN moved that the meeting elect Chaz Antonelli KA2POE as president by acclamation, which was unanimously adopted, and that Stephen Lynch KD2DCO be appointed station trustee, which was also unanimously adopted.
On the motion of Stephen Lynch KD2DCO, the meeting unanimously adopted this amendment to the Articles of Association: At the end of Article 2, add: "Provided, that the president may decide that a member who ceases to be a member of Hack Manhattan, or is no longer a member of Hack Manhattan, shall continue to be a member of the club."
There being no further business before the meeting, the meeting adjourned on the motion of E. Lee.
