3. President’s Report 

The President reviewed his travel. This included meetings with the FAA and FCC, senators and members of congress; attending the AUVSI congressional caucus and attending and sUAS Fly-In. The fly-in started out with an hour-long seminar and continued into a flying event, similar to any other fly-in of airplanes/helicopters. The President reported that much of the discussion by the pilots revolved around current and future technology. 

4. Executive Vice President's Report

The EVP reported the last quarter had been quite busy. He chaired the CFO search committee with members E. Williams and T. Jesky recommending that Council appoint Keith Sessions as CFO; working with R. Kennedy chaired the ad hoc committee developing recommended duties and guidance for Leader Members; worked with A. Argenio on the bylaws committee to bring continuity to the bylaws and the work that Bob Underwood did; K. Sessions and he met with B. Flesher, J. Nance and M. Benson relative to the Marketing Committee and attended the Finance Committee meeting.

At the request of T. Jesky, Fitch attended an event in MI to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. The event was sponsored by the Benzie Area Radio Control Club which was able to raise over $2,400. Special thanks were offered to Ed McIntosh who did an excellent job of promoting the event.

5. Chief Financial Officer's Report

K. Sessions reported he came onboard as CFO in September and recently met with C. Schroeder at HQ. He has been working on the investment accounts and met with Merrill Lynch in September. He requested additional information on the portfolio and met again with them via conference call on Friday. Another meeting is scheduled in a couple of weeks.

6. Executive Director’s Report

2014 Executive Council meeting dates – Tentative dates were sent to Council for review. Following discussion the dates were established as follows:

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to approve the dates for the 2014 Executive Council meetings. Dates: January 12 (Sunday of the AMA Expo); April 6 (Sunday of the Toledo Weak Signals Show); July 19-20; and October 11-12.  The Finance Committee meeting will be no later than 3 weeks prior to the October EC meeting. The annual Membership Meeting will be Thursday May 15, 2014 (during the Joe Nall event). New VP orientation will take place December 9-10, 2013 at AMA HQ.

It was recommended that the Finance Committee meet a couple of times while the budget is being put together, to allow for meaningful discussion on fundamental portions of the budget; the ED stated that this would be at the discretion of the Finance Committee Chairman. The ED explained the 6-8 week process HQ goes through when creating the budget; the chairman is included in this process. It was recommended that committee members be involved in the development process as well. The budget is then sent to Council members for their review and given the opportunity to ask questions and express concerns. This year the ED only had one question from a Council member; and no dissension was expressed during the Finance Committee meeting. Council always has the option to modify the budget at this meeting or whenever they deem necessary.

Membership numbers – Thanks to the hard work of the staff, 2013 membership numbers are up for the second year in a row.

New VP orientation – This will be held December 9-10, 2013. There will be some current Council representation there to speak and help the new individuals get acclimated to the position.

Publications – The first webinar on scratch building had 300 attendees; this is higher than the national average. Since this went up on the web site there has been about 1,000 views in the first week. Survey results on the first webinar indicated that 100% would attend another webinar; participants rated it 4.8 out of 5 and the most common suggestion was to make the webinar longer.

This renewal season members are afforded the option of receiving a print magazine, a digital version or both. The ED reviewed the numbers on how members wanted to receive the magazine and the results of a recent survey. M. Lanternman has created a rate package to sell advertising on the digital opportunities.

AMA signed a new contract with Quad Graphics and locked-in paper prices for a year. The longer term contract will save $93k over the term of the contract; AMA will also get a $10k/year new technology credit.

FSAP – Talked last meeting about enhancing the Flying Site Assistance Program in 2014. A three point plan was created for 2014 with the goal and objective to create corporate level clubs, interact with the military (start military level clubs) and enhance the park and recreation effort.

Hall of Fame Procedures Manual – There have been a number of changes made; 99% of the changes were administrative. Concern was expressed regarding the ability of selection committee members to submit applications and then be able to vote on those applications. Following a brief discussion, the majority of Council agreed and recommended that a clause be written in to the procedures stating a sitting member of the HOF selection committee may not submit a nomination for an individual.

The President will inform the committee chair of Council’s recommendation. It is expected that Council will receive a brief update at the January Council meeting in CA.

Sanction certificates/packages – Approximately 2,400 sanction certificates/packages are sent out each year at a significant cost. HQ would like to start sending these out via email (as insurance certificates are currently being sent). It would be a cost saving measure as well as getting the information in the CD’s hands much quicker. There was no objection to HQ moving in this direction. A note will be added to the form stating the CD will receive this via email. HQ will accommodate those that do not have a computer.

Member request for club AED (Automated External Defibrillator) campaign – A member suggested that AMA create a campaign to encourage clubs to purchase an AED for their flying sites. Council agreed that an article will be placed in the magazine and on the web site encouraging clubs to have one at their flying site.

Copyright Issues – The ED reported that the copyright symbol can be added to any of our documents at this point, including the Safety Program, the CBO paper and collateral documents.

7. NAA REPORT

J. Gaffney informed Council that NAA had hired a new Director of Administration.

In May he met with the FAI Secretary General (Jean Marc Baden) and staff; Baden will be leaving, and the FAI will be looking for their third SG in three years.

During the FAI Annual General Conference an unbalanced budget was submitted for approval.  A motion was made by NAA representative Art Greenfield, that the unbalanced budget not be accepted; his motion was approved unanimously.

He attended the Aerobatic World Championship last week in Texas and informed Council the Balloon Federation of America will hold their World Championship in Albuquerque, NM in 2015.

Applications for Sporting Licenses have recently seen an upswing. 

8. Committee Reports

Budget
Council met for 30 minutes in Executive Session.

MOTION I: It was moved by R. Cameron (VI) and seconded by B. Teague (IV) to accept the budget.
MOTION passed: 9-Y; 1-N (X); NAA rep. was out of room at time of vote

Museum

Chairman Teague reported the Museum Steering committee unanimously recommended recognizing the Blimp Hangar at the Marine Air Station in Tustin, CA as a Historic Site.

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to approve the North Blimp Hangar, Naval Designation “Building #28” Marine Corps Air Station Tustin, California as a National Aeromodeling Heritage Program Historic Site.

Bliss recently attended the NMPRA Championship in Julian, NC. During that event donations were solicited for the Cliff Telford Scholarship Fund; they raised $1,350 (Bliss presented the check to the AMA President.) Over the last few years, this group has raised over $15,000 for the Telford Scholarship.

Marketing/Membership
J. Nance updated Council on the Membership Acquisition and Retention Marketing/Media plan.

Print advertising has been running since late spring in various modeling publications. Council viewed advertisements that run in the standard aviation publications, in helicopter publications, in on-line areas (RC Universe, RC Groups) and with industry partners and manufacturers.

At the July EC meeting Nance talked about the work they were doing with Google; he noted it is very viable for AMA in terms of generating membership. Currently testing different ways to tell the membership about AMA and joining, to determine which combination of words will attract the most new members at the lowest acquisition cost.

The Nationwide Affinity program launched a couple of months ago; the first results were received yesterday. To date, 47 members took advantage of auto insurance, one member purchased motorcycle insurance and one purchased RV insurance. Nance noted that AMA will start to hit the ‘bonus’ level once 275 auto policies are purchased, but he reminded Council that even if the goal (of 275) isn’t reached, AMA still receives $12,500/year from the partnership.

AMA Ambassador Hoot Gibson was enshrined in the National Aviation Hall of Fame a few weeks ago.

Bylaws
Argenio reported the committee has been working on suggestions initiated by B. Underwood to amend/revise the bylaws. The committee also looked at which items in the bylaws could be put in the standing rules for easier amendment/adoption by Council and to conduct business in a more efficient manner.

Article III-Membership: Section 1 – the committee recommended changing the categories to be listed as (a) Adult (b) Senior and (c) Youth. Also include the sentence “An additional list of classified members as defined by the Executive Council can be found in the standing rules.” The six “classifications” will be listed as General, Leader, Life, Park Pilot, Affiliate and Youth (junior youth and senior youth for the purpose of competition.) Having the list of classified members in the standing rules, allows Council to make additions/deletions more easily. Since AMA no longer offers the categories of Associate, Honorary and Contributing members, these will be deleted. Council agreed with the recommended changes to the categories. The committee will develop the definitions of the ‘classifications’ to be placed in the standing rules and present them to Council.

Article V-Resignation, Termination, Disciplinary Action, Exclusion, Expulsion, and Reinstatement of Membership: Section 3 (b) – delete the word ‘mailed’ and replace with ‘sent’ and delete ‘by ordinary mail.’  Council agreed with the recommended changes.

Article VI-Dues: Add to the last sentence ‘and have AMA insurance coverage.’ This informs members they will not have insurance coverage when their dues are not currently paid. Council agreed with the recommended change.

Article VIII-Meetings: Section 3 – delete from the last sentence ‘Meeting announcements shall be sent to each member of the AMA or announced’ and replace with ‘Meeting notification will be published in the AMA’s official print and electronic media publications’……. Council agreed with the recommended change. The question was asked when the 45 day time frame begins; Argenio will clarify this with legal counsel.

Article X-Officers: Section 2, item (1) was referred back to the committee for further clarification. Section 3 – Delete the paragraph beginning ‘Those current elected officers at the date of adoption of these term limitations……….’. Under the asterisked (*) item, add to the end of the sentence ‘as confirmed by the Membership Department on the date of nomination’.  Section 7 – Delete the sentence ‘The number of Associate Vice Presidents within each district will be established by the Executive Council in accordance with the specific needs of each district.’ This was previously changed by Council action. Add to Section 7 the following, to reflect that change ‘Each District Vice President shall appoint as many Associate Vice Presidents as they deem appropriate. Based on the requirements of their assigned duties, Associate Vice Presidents are required to hold the membership classification of Leader Member.’ Council agreed with the recommended changes.

Article XI-Executive Council: Section 4 – In the first sentence, following the words by a 2/3 majority, add ‘mail or electronically communicated’. Second sentence delete ‘There shall be no proxy voting’; following Associate Vice President add ‘or Leader Member’; and at the end of the sentence delete ‘except the right to vote.’ Council agreed with the recommended changes.

Article IX-Nominations and Elections: Section 1 – This was completely rewritten to reflect the actual intentions and practices. New Section 1 reads: ‘Nominees for AMA District Vice President shall be nominated by any Open member or designated Special member whose classification has been granted voting privileges by the Executive Council. The nominating member and the member that he/she nominates must be bona fide legal residents of the same district at the time of such nomination. Nominees for AMA President and Executive Vice President shall be nominated by any Open member or designated Special member classifications that are granted voting privileges by the Executive Council.’  A new Section 2 was added to describe the actual functions of the Nominations Review Committee. Section 2 reads – ‘An AMA Nomination Review Committee composed of all District Vice Presidents (or an Associate Vice President from the district of an absent Vice President as designated by the absent Vice President), and the Executive Vice President (or an Associate Vice President as designated by the absent Executive Vice President) shall operate annually and under procedures defined in the Standing Rules attached to these Bylaws. The AMA Nomination Review Committee shall review the nominee’s AMA qualifications before placing them on the ballot, in order to ensure that they meet the requirements for holding office as described in the Standing Rules attached to these Bylaws.”  Old Section 2 was renumbered to Section 3. Section 4 was rewritten to eliminate ambiguity and now reads: ‘To be eligible for the position of any AMA elected or appointed Office, including Associate Vice Presidents, the individual must be recorded in the Membership Department as a Leader Member before the date of application or nomination.’ Section 5 – Delete second paragraph beginning ‘District Vice President candidates shall be nominated……’ as this is now covered under Section 1.  In the paragraph beginning ‘District Vice Presidents shall be elected exclusively….’, delete ‘Leader’ since a Leader Member is an Open member; and add ‘and/or designated classified members.’ The ‘NOTE’ at the end of Section 5 was revised to read: ‘The AMA Executive Council recognizes “bona fide legal residents” as residency that is defined by the State or IRS and verifiable by the AMA.’ Council agreed with the recommended changes.

The committee in consult with legal counsel will look at adding a section describing the duties and responsibilities of the Executive Council as a whole. They will also investigate adding a new ‘Special Counsel’ category in the bylaws that would empower an individual with special status to serve and provide counsel when needed. All changes to the bylaws and standing rules will be reviewed by F. Gora before being presented to Council for vote.

Duties/Responsibilities for Leader Members (ad hoc)
R. Kennedy explained the duties are reflective of those for AVP’s except it is at the local and club level. Leader members will be the liaison between the clubs and AVP’s/District VP’s and advise the club on active AMA programs, including increasing AMA membership, contests, grants, youth scholarships, youth camps, elections, etc. Their main function will be to keep the club informed on what AMA is doing and what is available for them to use. Clubs should be encouraged to form chapters and work towards common goals.

MOTION II: It was moved by G. Fitch (EVP) and seconded by B. Teague (IV) to approve the document titled Academy of Model Aeronautics Duties and Responsibilities Guidance for AMA Leader Members.
MOTION passed unanimously

This document will be sent to all Leader Members and will appear in the AMA Standing Rules.

The ad hoc committee has completed its charge as directed by the President; G. Fitch will continue to work with the bylaws committee in the development of duties, etc. for the Executive Council as a whole, along with R. Cameron and M. Mosbrooker.

AMA/sUAS Advisory
The committee’s mission over the past year and a half has been to define AMA’s support as far as products and services for the FPV/sUAS community. There are two sides to this issue; there is a recreational side and a personal use/light commercial side.

Various groups were polled to find out where they thought AMA should fit in. R. Hanson has been on the road attending various conventions, seminars, events, etc. and has a lot of good information on where this community is heading.

Recreational users can use the platforms now under the AMA guidelines. The committee will focus more on developing a program for the recreational community. The staff is tasked with developing a program for the personal and light commercial community. Approving the motion gives the staff and committee the latitude to make some decisions independent of council because time will be of the essence on many of the issues, both in writing the standards, creating programming functionality and infrastructure.

MOTION III:: It was moved by E. Williams (II) and seconded by M. Mosbrooker (XI) to move forward with developing a program to support the personal use and light commercial sUAS communities.
MOTION passed: 10-Y; 1-N (X)

Education
Learning Management System (LMS) - E. Loy reported the LMS provides the opportunity to educate members and others online. It is expected the initial unveiling will take place during the AMA Expo. She is currently translating the paper documents needed for CD certification into something that can be done online. The LMS can provide a myriad of online course opportunities; recommendations should be forwarded to B. Pritchett.

Mobile RC Experience – J. Rice noted the trailer had been traveling across District VIII; it does a great job of advertising on the highway.  J. Symmes reported she is currently taking bookings for 2014. Rates for using the trailer vary depending on the event, whether there is VP assistance, sponsorship, mileage, and gas costs. Priority should be given to large scale events where non-AMA members are present. The Education Department should offer sponsorship opportunities to universities that offer aerospace programs (Perdue, Embry Riddle, etc.). J. Symmes reported the trailer will be going to the Challenger Learning Center Family Day in St. Louis November 15; AMA was invited to attend and will work along side in the same booth as Boeing.

Rice noted that committee member Randy Carlson has an annual set of camps for Civil Air Patrol (CAP) cadets to learn model airplanes. Three camps were held in 2013 in which 80 students ran through to soloed flights. He is making good progress with the program through donations from Hobbico and will hold camps again in 2014 where he expects to have 90 spaces available. He encourages the cadets to already have their AMA license when they show up for camp.

The Soaring Society of America (SSA) is holding a convention in Reno, NV February 27-March 1; they have invited education support. They have given booth space, as well as space for indoor and outdoor demo flying. The Education Department is working to have someone there.

Council viewed the EAA/AMA Young Eagle video in July; this will be released next year. The committee discussed how to get this to clubs. It was recommended it be sent to every Leader Club and every AVP.

Council received copies of applications for Camp AMA with the request to consider asking a club to sponsor an attendee in 2014. (Council was asked not to hand out the applications until after November 1.) Clubs that sponsor an attendee receive a $100 savings on the cost. Consideration is being given to expanding to a Camp AMA West in 2015.

Foundation Update
Hanson updated Council on the application status. One of the critical components to starting the operation of the Foundation is the Board of Directors; Council members should forward any recommendations for this board to R. Hanson. HQ is looking at National Model Aviation Day being operated in the future under the banner of the Foundation. The AMA President will need to appoint a new chairperson to this committee, to begin January 1, 2014.

EXECUTIVE SESSION
3:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

9. Old Business

Non-rule book event definitionE. Williams noted this item is part administrative correction and part procedural correction to the standing rules. The current Class C-restricted event does not include events restricted to a model aircraft type. It is felt that this inclusion is more fitting with the understanding many AMA members have of a restricted event. This change serves to better reflect the nature of these events.

MOTION IV: It was moved by E. Williams (II) and seconded by M. Mosbrooker (XI) to change the definition of Class “C-restricted” events as defined in the last sentence of section 3.10, page 18 of the 2013 AMA Membership Manual to read: “If entry is restricted to, or preference or priority is given to, members of a club or clubs; or to an organization affiliated with the AMA; or to residents of a confined area, such as a city or county; or for exclusive aircraft type (e.g. helicopter, turbine, electric, etc.), it should be listed as 'C-restricted.'”
MOTION passed unanimously

FAA/Government Relations (Appendix)
Hanson updated Council on the September meeting with J. Williams and his staff. He then spoke to the ramifications of the Pirker case.

Back in July AMA responded to a request from the FAA to create guidelines for model aircraft operations at full scale air shows. In July Council passed policy relative to this activity; FAA was informed AMA would create a procedural document that provides the CD and model aircraft pilots guidelines as to how to operate at those events. This document would be included in the document listing on the AMA web site and included as part of the documentation sent to a CD when they apply for a Class D sanction for an air show.

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to approve the document titled Academy of Model Aeronautics Requirements for the Operation of Remote Control (RC) Aircraft at Full Scale Air shows as submitted October 19, 2013.

West Coast Flying Site Update
L. Tougas explained the background of this item for the newer members of Council. His investigation revealed there are three options: own the site outright; lease and develop the site, or enter into a partnership. Tougas noted there is a club in District X, the Woodland Davis Aero Modelers, interested in exploring a partnership with the AMA. The club is on 46 acres of a 300 acre parcel; club size is approximately 127 members; they are a Leader Club, involved in the community and hold many major events each year. The site would provide year-round flying, it is only 15 minutes from a major airport (Sacramento), and there are nearby attractions. Next step - Tougas understands there are many issues with a shared-use facility that will need to be addressed. He will proceed forward with the board of this club and start initial discussions and try to identify and quantify the issues. Chiefly among them would be percentage of use (Tougas feels is should be dependent on how much each organization has invested in the property); and the improvements to the property. The club does not own the property, but want to purchase the 46 acres; he noted it should sell for about $6,000/acre. One of the issues to be resolved is that the current use property would have to be subdivided. The benefit of a partnership would be AMA wouldn’t have the property for 52 weeks out of the year; the onus would not be on AMA to keep it operating the entire time, and there is a club that will be doing the maintenance; they will be present on site which eliminates the need to have any staff or paid position to maintain the field.

Tougas was asked about the taxes on the property, if there were any EPA issues and what were his expectations on how to raise the funds to do this; he noted this would be part of the analysis.  P. Bretsen noted there are also insurance issues that would need to be addressed. There needs to be further discussion with the club to understand what their expectations are and what AMA’s abilities are. Tougas will update Council on the progress in April 2014.

AMA Event Calendar (Appendix)
E. Williams’ concept is to provide a listing of non-sanctioned events on the AMA website. The number of non-sanctioned events continues to grow; this should be considered a service we provide our members. Other entities are already providing this service to our members. The listing would be visually minimalistic, open to AMA clubs only, self-serviced event listing by club designee, word-filters would be employed, and would have admin oversight or approval as necessary. Loss of sanctioning revenue with an open event calendar is estimated to be about $2,500; revenue loss should be compensated if not exceeded by increased banner advertising opportunities on the open event calendar.

MOTION V: It was moved by A. Argenio (I) and seconded by M. Mosbrooker (XI) to accept the plan to move forward with the non-sanctioned event listing on the AMA website.
MOTION passed unanimously.

Goldberg Award
Mathewson reported on the recipients of the 2013 Carl and Beth Goldberg Award. It should be noted that each District Vice President (or their appointed representative) is entitled to cast a vote in the selection process.

AVP/Leader Member status
G. Fitch stated that it does not say anywhere in the bylaws or standing rules that an AVP is required to be a Leader Member. He requested two modifications to the document on the duties/responsibilities guidance for AVPs; add the requirement of being a LM and in the fourth paragraph replace ‘He’ with ‘He/She’.

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to approve the following changes to the document titled AMA Suggested Duties and Responsibilities Guidance for Associate Vice Presidents:

Role of the AMA Associate Vice President (AVP) – add to the end of the first paragraph the sentence, “Like VPs, AVPs must also be Leader Members.” Also, in the second paragraph, the second sentence should now read: He/She may attend functions on behalf……

For those current AVPs who are not Leader Members, it was recommended that they be sent a LM application for completion; there is no cost associated with this.

 10. New Business

Chartered club definitionIn a review of the club charter information it was recognized that there was a reference that a majority of the clubs activity need to relate to the building and flying of model aircraft. AMA does have chartered car and boat clubs and there has been talk about reaching out more to those communities. It was recommended to remove the reference to building and flying of model aircraft, so RC car and boat activity could be incorporated in the chartered clubs.

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to revise the minimum requirement for chartered clubs by changing the wording to read “The majority of club activities relates to model activity, and its organizational operation […]”; deleting direct reference to building and flying model aircraft.

National Model Aviation Day 2014
T. Jesky reported the event was a huge success. Total number of clubs registered was 176 and total donations were $75,493.57.  AMA’s budget for this event was $4,000 of which $3,640.02 was spent. The next steps include contacting clubs that have not responded and completing/mailing certificate and participation letters.  HQ will coordinate a time to present the check to the WWP. Jesky thanked the VPs and HQ staff for the work they did to make this a successful event.

It was moved, seconded and approved by acclamation to establish August 16, 2014 as National Model Aviation Day (NMAD). Beyond 2014, NMAD will be recognized on the Saturday prior to National Aviation Day.

The President asked Jesky to remain as chairman of this committee and at the January 2014 EC meeting, make a recommendation to Council as to the charity that will benefit. Jesky noted he would like to stick to a military/children theme. It was noted that the fundraising activity could occur over a couple months time. The ED reported funds were included in the budget for 2014 and sponsorships will try to be generated to help offset the internal costs.

AWARDS
All awards were approved by concensus.

Next meeting: Sunday January 12, 2014 – Ontario, CA
