Panoramic photo of November meeting

Saturday - November 3, 2001

Location: Portland State University Portland Center for Advanced Technology in room 28

Because voting for club officers was to occur at this meeting, attendees were asked to sign in as current members (those 32 people present at last month’s meeting at which the current club by-laws were adopted), new members (those who have attended PARTS meetings in the past, but who weren’t at the October meeting), or guests (first-time attendees or those not ready or eligible to join.) There were 20 current members and 9 new members present (all eligible to vote) and 24 visitors (most from ITT, and not eligible to vote.)

There were no new nominations from the floor. Pete Skeggs (running for President), Warren Leach (running for Vice President) and Doug Arnold (running for Secretary) each spoke briefly about their associations with the club and their plans if elected. Dana Weesner (running for Treasurer) was not present. Ballots were distributed to all members eligible to vote; completed ballots were delivered in a metal ammo box decorated with pastel stickers to a group of volunteers who counted the votes. All four candidates were unanimously elected to their respective offices. With elections completed, the show and tell session of the meeting began.

The date of the next PARTS meeting will be December 8th instead of December 1st to avoid a conflict with the ORTOP First Lego League competition in Wilsonville.
