The Board Welcomed new members:
Bill Ooley and Ken Klehr.

Old Business: 
A task force was formed to look at options for raising revenue for Exotic Species Treatments.  The group will explore options that are available to us.  They could include talking to County Commissioners about getting more of our tax money to help with treatments, need more information on Lake Improvement District (Bill Craig was going to talk with someone who was part of forming one,  Steve has gathered information on this process) or can donations continue to meet this need. Rick F, Ken Klehr, Steve Ullom volunteered to be on this committee.  Will look for more members and development of a planning schedule at next Board Meeting in June. 

Reviewed Lake Management Plan and board approved for publication.

New Business:
Election of officers: the following were nominated and approved,
Kim Winter – President; Dennis Westendrop-V. President;
Steve Ullom-Secretary;  Cammy Moses- Treasurer
Bill Ooley chose to be on Exotic Species Committee and Ken Klehr on Finance/Fundraising.

Discussed the following topics:
Developing a monthly agenda (an eye on a year at a glance – issues, topics, a plan of what we are doing each month or planning for).  Dennis will talk to Kim about putting this in action.

There was a question about if we have a yearly budget?  Should we have a fact sheet of income and expenses available at the annual meeting?  Discussion about having monthly/yearly written financial statements was brought up.  What part does the Finance/Fund Raising Committee play in putting this together?  Because there was only a quorum of members available – This was tabled for discussion at the next board meeting. 

Committee Reports:

Finance –(Cammy Moses, Dennis Westendorp, Ken Klehr)  biggest money maker for us is membership dues.  There was a conversation about maybe lowering these, but consensus of those present was $50 per year was reasonable.  Most felt the cost was not a primary factor why people do not join the Association. 

Shoreline Captains/Membership – ( Jenna O’Brien, Kay Yock) Kay stated they need an agenda to talk to property owners about.  They will be asking property owners for email addresses to more easily communicate with them.   There are 26  Shore Line Captains.

Exotic Species – (Bill Craig, Dick Yoch, Bill Ooley) No committee member present for this meeting.  The committee last reported they had applied for a permit through Professional Lake Management and also requested a state grant.

Communications/Public Relations – (Rick Fernstrum, Steve Ullom, Jen Kjell)  The spring newsletter went out mid April, beginning to think about what needs to be in the summer edition.  Will work on getting more information on the website – link to Professional Lake Management, posting of most current milfoil mapping of the lake.  Steve will update Board email listing.

Cook Book – (Jenna O’Brien, Cammy Moses)  reported at Annual Meeting about 200 books still for sale. 

Next Meeting:
June 3, 2008  7:00 pm – Rod ‘n Gun Club
