The members present introducedt hemselves, 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 June 3, 2019 meeting as published in the August 2019 issue of The Voice. The motion was seconded and passed unanimously.
Treasurer’s Report:Dave Bajumpaa presented John Jarush’s treasurer’s report in John’s absence. In addition to reporting the balances as of the end of July, Dave noted that to date 31 clubs and 42 individual members had renewed.Also, donations received in excess of membership dues have totaled $3,490.
Legislative Report:Dave reported that the portion of the DMV “cleanup”bill (Senate Bill 924) that would have allowed certain vehicles to be exempt from having to display a frontl icense plate was removed from the bill just prior to its final passage on the last day of the session by the House and Senate. Reportedly, this change was made in deference to objections made by the State Police privately to the Legislators; they did not raise orexplain their objections in any public hearing.Dave also noted that news accounts have reported some legislators proposing requirements for seat belts in antique motor vehicles. There had been a bill raised on seat belts for backseat passengers in automobiles inthe 2019 Session, but it did not advance through the process. That bill (House Bill 7140) was amended at the last minute to delete that provision. This deleted provision was not adverse to the hobby, because the bill was limited to those vehicles that were originally equipped with seat belts. Regarding other legislative matters, Dave plans to prepare a draft exploring ideas that would simplify the titling procedure for antique vehicles. This will be further explored at our November meeting.
Other Business The members discussed a change to the starting time of these meetings, noting that by habit, members have been arriving earlier than the advertised time and meeting often begin before the published 8:00 PM stating time. Since an earlier starting time appears to be the preference of most members, the published dinner and meeting times will be scheduled for 6:30PM and 7:30 PM, respectively, beginning with the November 2019 meeting.
Adjournment:There being no additional business, the Meetingadjourned at 8:45 P.M.
Next Meeting:Our next meeting will be Monday, November 7, 2019 at the Athenian Diner Restaurant (dinner at 6:30 p.m,meeting at 7:30 pm).
Respectfully submitted, Jim Juhas, Recording Secretary 4C’s
