October 15th Annual Meeting Report

The annual business meeting of the Clear Lake Area National Space Society and Moon Society Chapter was held in the conference room of the Bay Area Community Center on October 15th, 2018. A quorum to do business under our current bylaws was present.

The current slate of officers and directors was renominated; as no other nominations were offered these candidates were elected by unanimous consent. Please see our “About the Chapter” page for detailed information. Our other major order of business was finalizing details for our “Movie Night” coming up next month. Once again, Anita Gale has generously offered to host us in her home on Saturday, November 10th. Our movie night will be a double feature: We will begin with Science Fact in the film Hidden Figures, the 2016 movie about the brilliant mathematicians who helped with the early Mercury program and were all ladies of color. We will follow that up with a classic Science Fiction space opera, the 1982 motion picture Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan. The program will get underway shortly after 3 p.m.; there will be a dinner break featuring sandwich fixings and chips between features.

See you there!
