The November BOD meeting minutes were approved and we will post on the CCA website.
We have one new Regular Life Member, Bernie Santos, who upgraded from annual membership. The BOD also voted to present Mrs. Alisa Barnes, mother of SrA Ty Barnes who passed in August, with an Associate Life Membership.
We have begun coordination on some new initiatives:
-CCT Hall of Fame, Rick Crutchfield volunteered to find a Chairman to organize this committee—looking to award at the next banquet.
-CCT Scholarship, Chris Larkin volunteered to coordinate with the family of one of our fallen to permanently memorialize the young man with a scholarship in his name; our intent is to provide this scholarship to a combat controller or family member enrolled in college—looking to award at the next banquet.
-Wounded Warrior needs, Sam Schindler volunteered to start a committee with an end goal to provide for immediate financial needs for CCT members.
-Individual and Corporate sponsorships, Mickey Wright will work to start this program.
-Tony Terrando proposed a budget and is working with our webmaster, Barry Gayles at Webvision to add a “DONATE/SPONSORSHIP” webpage connected to our CCA website.
Contact me directly for more information on any of the programs or to donate to one of the initiatives.
Additionally the CCA approved sponsorship of the Silver Star Wall and some of the displays at CCS and AFC statue at the Maxwell. Your BOD also voted to formalize the President’s Award and Active Duty CCT Award adding them to the Fox and Bennett Awards at CCS and Chapman Award at STTS.
