 COASTAL BEND SIERRA CLUB MEETING MINUTES  December 2013

 

On Tuesday, December 3, the Coastal Bend Sierra (CBSC) met from 11:30 am until 1:55 pm in the Retama Room of the Corpus Christi Public Library at 805 Comanche St.  Chairperson Lois Huff reminded members that the November minutes are posted on the CBSC website, and she then asked Treasurer Teresa Carrillo for her report.  Teresa alerted members to the fact that the checking account now has a balance of less than $1,000 ($937.50), but the total balance of the three CD’s is over $8,000 ($8,231.44).

 

Lois then announced that new business would be taken as the first agenda item since some members and guests needed to leave early.  Teresa Carrillo, who has served on the state-level Lone Star Sierra Club’s Executive Committee (ExCom) for several years, announced that she has resigned from that position.  Teresa and John Adams then gave a brief report on their trip to Mexico to view operations of an industrial site owned by M & G Group—an Italian company which hopes to open a plant in the Corpus Christi area if Texas regulatory agencies grant their permit application(s).

 

Given the interest in the topic of how, when, and at what level, CBSC should be involved in meeting with industry representatives and officials, Lois—with concurrence of members present—suggested that today’s meeting time be used for a thorough discussion of such involvement.

 

Therefore, reports of standing committees and the nominations committee were deferred until the next meeting, and members proceeded to express their experience-based insights and opinions on what role CBSC should play in local industrial matters.  Also, Lois and several other members voiced their concerns over what our local Sierra group’s obligations are in respect to stands taken by the state and national Sierra organizations.

 

Prior to adjourning today’s meeting, Chairperson Lois Huff announced that she would be in touch with the general CBSC membership to alert them that election of officers will occur in January.
