Call to Order
Lisa Dommes called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m., noting the presence of a quorum. Chiles Cridlin read the Mission Statement.

Approval of Minutes
It was noted that there was no meeting in July. Chris Schriver moved to approve the minutes of the August 4, 2021 Board of Directors meetings as submitted. Theresa Bell seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

Committee Reports
Membership: Greg Boggs provided the membership report. Some members have not renewed, but there have been a good number of new members as well.

Publications: Chris Schriver provided an update on the Publications Committee activities. The committee has reviewed and incorporated the feedback from the membership survey.

Finance: Bill Jones presented projected financial statistics for the year to date and the current month.

Unfinished Business
The Board discussed the Annual Meeting and Banquet. Decision on a venue was tabled in light of the recent uptick in COVID cases. The Board will review the decision again next month. Greg Boggs noted that the SCA Worlds are the weekend of 3/12-13, and Brasstown will be an SCA only event this year on 2/19, so the best dates are 2/26 or 3/5.

New Business
The Board discussed the responses to the membership survey.

The Board discussed the MABA Cup and the need to establish a cutoff date for teams to commit to competing to give the runners up an opportunity to take their place. Bill Jones will re-circulate his recommendations from earlier this year and the Board will discuss the issue again in October.

The meeting adjourned at 7:41 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Lisa Dommes, Board President
