CRCA Board Special Meeting Minutes: CRCA Contributes $5,000 to Star Track Dinner (September 2018)

The all-volunteer CRCA Board held a Special Board Meeting via video conference on September 13. Minutes from that meeting, in draft form pending ratification by the full Board as part of the next meeting, follow below. If you have any questions or concerns about meeting minutes please reach out to any CRCA Board Member.

  • Ken (Treasurer) and Gabby (President): discussion of CRCA financial standing and tabling of a proposal to purchase two tables at the Star Track dinner for $10,000 with the goal of supporting Star Track and securing additional CRCA sponsors for 2019 at the dinner.

  • Board Members: extended discussion of the proposal including concerns for size of the expenditure relative to other core CRCA financial commitments including future anticipated expenses in the 2019 Open Racing budget estimated at $10,000, the ability to fill twenty seats at the dinner on sort notice, and the process and short-notice used to propose the expenditure to the board.

  • Voting: there was insufficient Board support for a $10,000 expenditure based on the aforementioned concerns. A counter proposal to purchase one table for $5,000 was tabled with the stipulation that the Star Track dinner also serve as the 2018 CRCA Donor dinner with invitations dispatched to all donor members to thank them for their vital financial support of CRCA. This proposal was ultimately approved 24 hours after the special meeting with 7 yes votes, 2 no votes, and 1 abstain.

IMPORTANT - 2018 CRCA Donor Members: if you would like to attend the Star Track dinner on Tuesday September 25 this event will serve as the 2018 CRCA Donor dinner. Please reach out to any board member and they can provide additional information. Seats are limited so please act soon.


These minutes are considered to be in draft form pending approval from the full CRCA Board at the next meeting.
