Beulah I Winfrey Business Alumni Chapter Meeting 11/4/06
Kevin Riley, in the absence of President Brian Carson, opened the meeting at 11:00 a.m. in the Plaster School of Business Room 211.
Riley welcomed all attendees and the minutes from the 2005 meeting were submitted and approved. The treasurer’s report showed a fund balance of $1,706.40. There was no other old business.
In new business, nominations for secretary/treasurer were accepted. Kevin Riley was nominated and elected by acclamation. Robert Wheeler moves to president and Lindon Newberry moves to vice president for this year.
The new web page honoring Dr. Winfrey and the site for business alumni (www.cofo.edu---- alumni link and then business) was unveiled, demonstrated and evaluated. Several suggestions were given and discussed. The consensus was the web site should make clear the Business Alumni Chapter is open to all business and accounting majors and every effort should be made to expand membership. Everyone was encouraged to provide membership information to other business and accounting alumni from College (School) of the Ozarks.
The yearly dues remain $10.00 or a lifetime membership can be obtained for a one-time contribution of $200.00. Anyone can submit an application on-line and send dues to Kevin Riley (checks payable to College of the Ozarks) at the following address: College of the Ozarks, P.O. Box 17, Point Lookout, MO 65726.
The meeting adjourned at 11:40 a.m.
