Details of the online meeting:
Dear Members,
I want you to know that the business of Territory Tellers has been conducted according to the by-laws over the past few weeks.  The by-laws allow for an executive committee to be appointed to conduct business during an emergency situation.  I believe the coronavirus has put us in an emergency situation.  The March board meeting was cancelled due to safety issues.  I conferred with Tony Hardman, acting parlimentarian on this issue.  I have appointed the following people to the executive committee.
    Liz Parker – President
    Paulette Geeslin – Vice President
    Sheron Rodgers – Secretary
    Rosemary Czarski – Treasurer
    Bonnie Smith – Past President
    Tony Hardman – Acting parlimentarian, non-voting member
As secretary, Sheron Rodgers sends out the motions by email, receives the votes, records the votes and the time, and keeps all the records to be presented at future board or general membership meetings.
Two motions have been voted on by the executive committee.
Motion 1 was made by Paulette Geeslin and seconded  by Bonnie Smith.  4 yes votes and 1 vote not counted because of a technical problem which made vote late.
The following slate of officers is presented to the general membership to be voted on at the next general membership meeting.
    President – Liz Parker
    Vice-President – Paulette Geeslin
    Secretary – Sheron Rodgers
    Treasurer – Rosemary Czarski
    Board Member – Barbara Jones
    Board Member – Molly Lemmons
    Board Member – Richard Czarski
    Board Member ______________
    Board Member ______________
‘Motion 2 was made by Bonnie Smith and seconded by Rosemary Czarski.  Motion passed with 5 yes votes
The 2020 Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling and general membership meeting scheduled for June  5 & 6, 2020 at the Lawton/Fr Sill Veteran
Center is postponed until further notice.  (The Territory Tellers will not lose any money due to this action.)
Please know that the safety of our members is the most important concern of the officers right now.  We will stay in touch with you.  Please stay safe until we can meet together again and share stories.  If you have any questions, please contact me.      405-245-5388
Your president,
Liz Parker
