Subject: Revised March 12 Potomac Chapter Minutes

(This was a telephone meeting due to the closure of St. George’s Episcopal Church, the usual venue for our meetings.)
Meeting called to order shortly after 8:00 PM by President John Halverson.
John appointed a nominating committee: Patty Droppers, Sean McMahon, and Deepa Goraya and indicated that he would be stepping down as President, but that he would still be very much involved.
Anyone interested in running for a position or nominating someone should contact a member of the committee.
Anyone who has paid membership dues prior to the election will be able to vote.

Our March 21 auction will be postponed to a date to be determined.
The chapter authorized $500 from our Youth Fund to assist blind students in the northern Virginia area to attend a national convention for the first time.
We will consider supporting the Adopt A Braille Reader program, which will kick off again at the start of the next school year.
May 16 was proposed as our spring picnic date at the home of John and Sandy Halverson.
Subject to evolving circumstances and Federation policy, our April chapter meeting will be April 16; we believe the church will be available again at that time.
The Virginia legislature has authorized $1.2 million to be split between DBVI and DARS; we will receive definitive numbers soon.
Meeting adjourned at 8:55

(February minutes are not available due to technical difficulties; that meeting was chaired by Recording Secretary Christine Grassman. A representative from STAR and WMATA were present and discussed paratransit and related subjects. The auction, spring picnic, the national convention, and the state convention were discussed, and the Presidential Release for February was played.)

Respectfully submitted,
Christine Grassman
Recording Secretary
