He noted that he received a message from our attorney alerting the association to some items that we must initiate once incorporation was completed. These include registering with the Georgia Secretary of State, obtaining a new tax ID number, changing our bank account to a corporate account and executing a new signature card, and affixing the word Incorporated to the name of the association. The President remarked that he did not have a date when the incorporation would be completed but was confident that it would be done by the January 2002 Annual Membership Meeting.

5. New Business:

    a. USAMU Report:

    (1) The USAMU Deputy noted that plans were being made to present the CISM Team Championship Trophy (silver dueling pistols) to the Secretary of the Army.

    (2) Mr. Aylward reported that the Fall Selection Match was cancelled by USA Shooting because of the September 11th event and that the decision to hold the CAT Shooting Championships, scheduled for October at Fort Benning, would be made later in the week.

    (3) The USAMU Deputy commented that the ammunition bunker project was on track in spite of several floor plan changes.

    b. Private Organizations at Fort Benning: The Treasurer presented a letter from the Soldier and Family Support Association. The letter contained information about the distribution of Combined Federal Campaign funds to private organizations authorized to operate on the Post. He noted that the letter was received after a scheduled meeting to discuss eligibility. The President passed the letter to the Secretary for filing.

    c. Motions and Voting: The Secretary reviewed the procedures for making and seconding motions in accordance with Roberts Rules of Order. He also discussed the method of recording a vote on a motion--either by voice or by a show of hands--when only majority vote is required.

    d. MMA Support of USAMU Annual Golf Tournament: Mr. Aylward relayed a request for MMA support of the USAMU Annual Golf Tournament from the Project Coordinator, Mr. Arnold. He noted that the support would benefit the soldiers assigned to USAMU and was within the spirit of the MMA Constitution. After discussion, the Vice President moved that $300.00 be granted for the purpose of supporting the golf tournament but be limited to junior enlisted personnel. The motion failed without being seconded. Mr. Rebidue moved that $300.00 be granted for the purpose of supporting the golf tournament without restrictions. The motion was seconded and adopted.
