MAJOR CHANGE IN TUCSON COWBELLE MEETINGS
Just as many organizations, the Tucson Cowbelles are having issues with membership being unable to attend our monthly meetings, resulting in the lack of a quorum to conduct business.
At our recent October meeting, the Tucson Cowbelles discussed various reasons for the lack of attendance and how we might resolve the issue.
Several suggestions were made to limit the number of meetings from monthly, to every other month, to semi-annual with board meetings in between the general meetings, to leaving the meetings as they currently are.
A motion was made by Micaela McGibbon to have four meetings each year, beginning January, 2018, with the option of board meetings to be held each month, or as necessary in order to keep the continuity of the organization going and/or to prepare for events or activities of the Tucson Cowbelles. Although these are called board meetings, all members are invited to attend, if they wish. Catherine Mann/Cindy Coping second the motion – motion was passed. A quorum was present at the October 2017 meeting.
Meetings will continue to be held on the 2nd Wednesday each month at 11:30. The meetings will be held as provided below:
JANUARY Board Meeting – MO Club
FEBRUARY REGULAR MEETING, CODY’S BEEF N BEANS
MARCH Board Meeting – MO Club
APRIL Board Meeting – MO Club
MAY REGULAR MEETING – TANQUE VERDE RANCH (BRIEF

We all understand that members are inundated with meetings: Cowbelles, Farm Bureau, UofA Meetings, NRCS, Various Community Events and Commitments, Family Time, etc. By making the above adjustment to our Tucson Cowbelle meetings, it is our hope that we can ease our members stress for time but still enjoy the Cowbelle meetings and our commitment to the Beef Industry.
