It’s a new year at the Breakfast Club!

  1. Roster update for 2022 are in process led by Dwain Coleman. Please let him know if you will be placing an ad in the roster book.
  2. We need a President, Vice President, and Board members for the club starting in the January thru June 2022 term. Interested? Contact Past President Jon.

Business Networking: With only 11 in attendance today, we did a round table on business and personal updates.

Business Exchange: None today.

Pot of Gold: Dick Nelson drew one card and it was Martin Peyer’s.

Craft Talk: 

Craig Blixrud gave an update on Club Leadership, Club membership, and Club Financials.

Club Leadership: We currently are seeking a President, Vice President, Vice President of Membership, and up to 3 directors. The club can’t operate without a few leaders.

Club Membership: We have 31 active members and 11 Honorary members. Attendance has been in the 15-person range for the last couple months, more if we have a good craft talk planned. We had 43 members pre-Covid and 48 members a year before that.

Club Financials: We have about $17,000 in reserve funds and have been operating on a breakeven basis since dues were reinstated a few months ago. We spend about $2500 per month and revenue is about $2500 per month as well.

We need to figure out how to recruit new members, the value added the club can add to a business, or look at alternatives for the club going forward.

Registration can be to Craig Blixrud @ blixrudhomes@gmail.com or call/text to 612-716-4551.

Looking ahead
