Re-singing of the Anthem.

Under some duress from both Minister of Interior Design and Minister of MOM for wanting to leave for Sacramento after the meeting, Minister of Competition disingenuously swore he would stay for the night.

Minister of Member of the Month read Minister of Revelry and Spirits’ letter detailing a potential IFS trip to Lake Tahoe to take place in early July. 

As Chairman of the meeting, the Minister of Philanthropy introduced an action item of changing Minister titles that was originally added to the agenda by Minister of Rousing.

Minister of Competition moved to have a Minister or Rabbi change his title be contingent on a 2/3 vote. The Minister of Health seconded this motion.
The motion was passed unanimously: 15 Y – 0 N

At this point in the meeting, the structure of the meeting became much more deliberate and orderly.  Though time-consuming at times, the parliamentary procedure was in full effect. 

Some more beer was spilled.

New system for IFS cheers was discussed but no motion presented

An action item was brought up to be discussed for the next meeting – the setting up of a joint bank account or a mechanism to transfer money between members for event planning, merchandise, etc.

    Nice work History!!! Great minutes and recap of the meeting. I also have that there was a “Lake Tahoe” special committee formed. Which was more relevant than the television or chips and dip special committees that were unofficially formed later in the day. I also have the changes to the constitution ready and I will post an agenda soon.

    Y+T, it should be 1000 mcg, not mg. I’m not quite sure what would happen if you took 1000mg, but that’s a hell of a lot of B12.. well done though sir
