Minutes of the July 23, 2022 General Meeting of the Alantic Division

Eleven members of the Atlantic Division of the Southeastern Region of the NMRA gathered at Easterby’s restaurant in Charleston South Carolina for the regularly scheduled meeting of the division. The gathering began at approximately 11 o’clock with conversation and dining. At 12:35 superintendent Richard Fulkerson called the meeting to order. Sec. Casey Bartman and member Lloyd Bloom attended via Zoom secondary to health issues.

The first item of business was a review of the minutes of the previous meeting. Unfortunately, no minutes were available.

The next order of business was a report by Treas. Tom Sullivan. There was no change in the funds accumulated by the division.

Superintendent Fulkerson reported that the Southeastern Region had provided funds for the purchase of a projector screen for use by the division during its meetings.

The first order of new business was the appointment of Tedd Pounds as the assistant superintendent of the division. Previously, Casey Bartman had been serving the roles of assistant superintendent, secretary, and webmaster. Those in attendance unanimously approved the appointment of Tedd. His term of office will be staggered with the superintendent’s term of office to provide continuity of leadership.

The business of the division concluded, the meeting was adjourned at approximately 1:00 P.M. After the adjournment member David Pitcher presented a clinic on cast molding followed by a clinic on scratch building presented by member Tom Sullivan.
