Another year is coming to an end in a few months. We have only two more meetings before the end of the year: Sept 15th War of 1812 and Nov 17th DNA in Genealogy.
We need program ideas for the coming year! Please email us your ideas/suggestions for programs for next year! Would you like to present a program to the society? Let us know!
We also need officers for the society for next year! If you have any interest in helping to maintain the society please contact Kellie Thompson or LaNita McKinney. Please consider serving our society in the coming year! Any society needs people to keep the society functioning. If we want to have a society in the future we need people to help with the operations of the society!
The main duties of the president are the coordination of the society events, coordinating speakers, the meeting locations, and audio/visual equipment. The other duties of the president are to introduce our speakers and conduct any business meetings.
The treasurer of the society has the main duties of collecting the mail from the society mail box and to do the society accounting. Basically, this involves preparing a short report of what we spend each month and the dues amounts deposited into the account. We use a basic checkbook register for our accounting so the treasurer doesn’t need any specific accounting skills. The treasurer also has to make sure that a few tax-related forms are filed each year but these are very simple forms and don’t take but a few minutes to complete each year. Finally, the treasurer makes sure to write the checks for the society: mail box fees, meeting room and audio/visual fees, and any other checks needed by the society.
The secretary of the society is charged with taking the minutes at each meeting and preparing them for display at each meeting (type and copy the minutes and print them before each meeting).
