Present were Ken Morley, Jerry Gifford, Ron Brunet, Bruce Belknap, Frank Murphy
1. Program for the November meeting. Ron will contact the Apple Store about the possibility of their doing a presentation on the iPad features and capabilities. Jerry suggested as a backup plan the club could demonstrate podcasts using iTunes or the CMoM website.
2. The CMoM website. Bruce and others discussed the relationship between Redshift and Club Mac.
3. Membership. Frank suggested that the board consider establishing a 2-tier dues payment system wherein renewing members would be charged less than new members. Members whose dues are delinquent more than a certain number of months would be considered new members in terms of payment due. This procedure could provide an incentive for club members to not let their membership lapse.

Club Mac of Monterey contracted for a van to San Francisco for Club members and guests to attend Macworld Expo at The Moscone Center. We had 8 riders on the van, 1 cancellation the day before and 1 person who missed the van due to traffic. The van departed Ft. Ord @ 0800 and returned at 1700. The CMoM meeting then convened at Canterbury Woods @ about 1830 with pizza provided by the Club. There were 13 people in attendance, including the 8 who were on the van trip. The program was an open forum led by President Ken on what we saw, what we purchased and a general discussion of the Expo. The meeting was adjourned @ 2030 and the Board meeting followed.
Call to Order:
Treasurers Report: Jerry gave a recap of our finances; we are solvent after paying for van and pizza. There was discussion about whether we should try to have a social activity this year—a party or ?? No conclusion was reached on a party but there was agreement we should try to encourage or accommodate people who might want to socialize or continue their discussions after our meetings. It was agreed to delay the Board meeting next month until 2130 to allow people to talk without feeling we were rushing them out in order to start the Board meeting. If this appears successful and people do stay to chat we will consider holding our future Board meetings at 1830—before the general membership meetings.
Program for Next Meeting: March 12 will be “A Discussion of Favorite Websites” to be led by Board member Ron Brunet. Members will be solicited by blast e-mail from President Ken to submit their favorite sites. Ron will open some of these and people can tell why this site is a favorite and how/why they use it. This depends of course, on the C/W internet connection and the projector systems all working properly. Jerry to check in advance with David Powell to try to make certain they all work.
Future programs: Ideas for future meetings were discussed. Jerry will contact a person he has met at the Monterey Genealogy Society regarding a program on Google for the April meeting. Other topics (and the person to possibly honcho the program) are:
Features of Word (Ron)
There being no further ideas or CMoM business, the meeting was adjourned by President Ken @ 2130.
Dick Crowell, Secretary
Club Mac of Monterey
The program tonight was on “Making Quicktime Photo Slideshows” and was presented by member Kathleen Marsh.
Call to Order: Board members present were Ken, Jerry, Ron, Bruce and Dick.
Program for Next Meeting: Bus trip to Macworld Expo and meeting afterwards to discuss what we saw at the county fair. Dick will try to place notice in Herald next week announcing seats are available and give web site if anyone interested in signing up. Another announcement will be sent to the Herald the week of the trip/meeting. General discussion followed concerning improving low demand for seats, possible need to downsize to a van, pizza party arrangements, map and directions.
Future programs: Programs for future meetings were discussed. For March it was agreed to have a program on “Search Strategies and Best Websites”, with Ron as the coordinator/presenter and solicit input on websites from the Board and/or members.
CMoM Website: There was general agreement on the high quality of our website and Board appreciation was expressed to Bruce for keeping it looking so good! Bruce will explore putting an index at the top of the site to help users find items and features listed on the site.
There being no further CMoM business, the meeting was adjourned by President Ken @ 2200.
