Minutes of February 7th Meeting:
Chairman John Bajumpaa called the meeting to order at 7:29 P.M.

The members present introduced themselves, identifying their affiliations with the 4Cs,whether representing a member club or as individual members.
Previous Meeting Minutes:
Dave Bajumpaa made a motion to accept the minutes of the November 1, 2021 meeting as published in the February 2022 issue of The Voice. The motion was seconded by John Jarush and passed unanimously.
Treasurer’s Report:
Treasurer John Jarush gave the bank balances as of the end of January 2022. Bob Balkow reported he had approximately 25 membership checks to deposit so the balance will increase accordingly.
Legislative Report:
Dave Bajumpaa reported there are no indications of any proposed legislation that is detrimental to the car hobby. He also told us that Jean Cronin, who is continuing the work of Hughes and Cronin following the passing of her husband and partner Carroll Hughes, is enthusiastic about the firm continuing to serve as our legislative monitor. She said she is excited about the work and expressed her interest in keeping us as her client. Dave noted the state budget appears to not be much of an issue during this legislative session, given Connecticut’s apparently sound financial status due to the influx of Federal Funding. Regarding any relevant legislative matters that might arise, it is expected that public hearings will continue to be remote at least through the end of February. While with the buildings still being closed to the public prevents opportunities for ad hoc discussions with legislators and other officials, it is easier to “attend” hearings virtually, not having to give up hours in waiting for your turn to speak.
Meanwhile, our ad hoc committee, led by Dave, will continue its efforts to address titling and composite vehicle concerns with the DMV. Our letter asking for attention on these matters from the Commissioner’s office is expected to go soon, and we may be able to get some political support from legislators we know who are supportive of the antique auto hobby. There was discussion about inconsistencies in the way various DMV offices and personnel address certain issues, and we discussed various examples reported from our membership. Typical of these comments is the way Classic Registrations are issued to virtually any car 20 or more years old, while DMV officials have told us they do no such thing. This will also be part of the discussion when we next get an opportunity to meet with DMV officials. 
Website, Calendar of Events, and Facebook:
John Bajumpaa said the website calendar is beginning to fill in for the coming season, coming from our own knowledge of expected events as well as announcements sent in or reported through our Facebook page. John checks various sources, for example, against club websites, to confirm for accuracy in our calendar listings. As always, he encourages members to use our Facebook Group Page for broadcasting about car shows and other related events While Facebook posts are expedient, there is always the ability to send new information and changes for the calendar to him directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.
