At our Tuesday morning meeting this week, Vern Drake [# 13] won the Tail
Twisters' pot. [No. 31 won last week-humm!]
Attendance was 18, plus our speaker and "guest-worker" Jerry Casteel-who
always helps the Lion Tamers when he comes to visit.
--Car Show Committee. Committee Chair Jim Watkins reported
that a big registration/ad mailing had gone out the day before, and
applications will hopefully start flooding in shortly. Strangely enough,
there will NOT be an evening meeting next Monday. (Make-up sessions will
probably take place later.)
--MD 7 Mid-Winter Forum. Our club will be represented at the state Lions
Mid-Winter Leadership Forum in Russellville this coming weekend by Brad
Baker. We look forward to hearing from Brad next week what the rest of us
Speaker: January Program Chair Ken Stallings introduced the speaker, Laura
Miller, the new Director of the ASU Small Business and Technology
Development Center (SBTDC), who spoke about what the SBTD Centers do, and
then presented "Navigating the Affordable Care Act," with a special focus on
its impact on small businesses and their new health insurance options and
requirements. The ASU SBTDC is part of the College of Business and is
located in the Delta Center for Economic Development on the Jonesboro
campus. (Ms. Miller is also club President Robert Bahn's boss - he took her
old job, so they both have been promoted recently.)
The meeting was adjourned at 7:30 am on the dot.
