The meeting was called to order by Carole Chambers at 12:12 pm.

Those in attendance were Philippe Cras, Carole Chambers, Leroy Harrison, and Chris Green.

Chris reported that there was a balance of $ 2,071.47 in the CRTF account.

A motion was made and a seconded to approve the minutes and treasurers report as written.

The brochures designed by LoneStar College Kingwood Design-A-Thon have been sent to the printer. We will get them asap.

Once again ideas for speaking gifts were discussed. It was decided by the board to purchase one item with the CRTF logo, to ask CRTF members to contribute items and then put all items together as a gift for each speaker. Chris will order an item after receiving the logo from Carole.

Carole will get the new logo and send it to all the board members. After that a generic business card will be printed using the logo.

There are two board positions up for election in November. Richard Driscoll, Jr. and David Cramer are up for re-election. Richard has stated he will run again and Carole is waiting to hear from David. She will announce at the general meeting that nominations are due to her by October 30, 2015 in order to be placed on a ballot.

The website is going very well.

We will return to meeting at Homewood Suites in September. Philippe announced that the hotel will have a re-grand opening on August 13, 2015 from 3p-7p. Everyone is invited.

The next board meeting will be September 11, 2015 the Homewood Suites in Kingwood at noon and the regular meeting will follow at 1 pm.
