OLD BUSINESS
We all thank Bruce and Caroline for hosting the Christmas party this year. Their home is beautiful and the stew and the foods they made were wonderful. Thank you to both Bruce and Caroline for opening your home to us. You are both very special to the Chatham CBA. During the party Bruce received a well-deserved award from the chapter for his dedication and support. Mikey also received an award for selling the most raffle tickets. Mohan also announced that Wayne and Debbie won a MSAP from the state CBA. Mohan will get with Wayne and Debbie to give them their award.
We regret that Debbie and Wayne have resigned their Secretary and MSAP Coordinator positions and have turned in their CBA memberships. This was due to the issue with a Cabarrus County CBA member not representing the CBA properly. I will not document the issue here. But anyone is free to call me at 919 522-4922 to discuss.
The chapter discussed the issue and felt that the issue should have been handled differently from the start. We felt Issue should have been addressed immediately (after emotional stage) or other members would join the dispute. If it was left unresolved, it would have and did lead to loss of members. A formal address of the issue and response to the issue was warranted back in November. There should have been communications from the BOD to the stateNchapter email group immediately. The chapter felt that basic conflict resolution practices were not followed from the start. BOD should have been fast in creating a solution. Communicated the resolution to all involved quickly. Followed up to be sure issue did not come up again.
We would like to thank both Wayne and Debbie for their support, hard work, and most of all, their friendship over the past few years. We will greatly miss their participation in chapter events and their positive energy.
As a result of these two resignations, the chapter is looking for nominations for Chapter Secretary and MSAP Coordinator.
NEW BUSINESS
Special State meeting is Saturday Jan 12th at 1:00 in Greensboro for those members who would like to attend. Vinny, Bruce, and possibly Cat may attend.
The chapter has decided to suspend the Third Sunday Chapter Breakfast Rides due to lack of participation until further notice.

W., Bernie J.

[NOTE: Yes, this is a colorful report but I tried to capture the
minutes from each of the months above using the colors above per month
so as to keep the minutes from each month separate.]

President's Comments:

- 2010 CCCBA Officers - All 2009 officers have been re-nominated
except that there was a nomination for Iris H. to run for Sgt at
Arms and Burnie M. was re-nominated also. We will need to vote on
this office at the November meeting. [NOTE: Iris asked to be taken off
the nomination of this office so Burnie is the 2010 MSgt at Arms for
CCCBA.]

- Bike nights (dinner) - these were previously the 4th Wednesday
of the month but participation has dropped over the past months so this
will be cancelled although ad hoc rides are always welcome.

- Sunday morning Rides - 3rd Sunday of the month when we meet at
Virlie's for breakfast at 9am, then go for a ride. This has continued
to have very good participation so we will continue into the new year.
For 2010, we will need some help leading rides; Ed, Bruce, Bill, and
Bernie all volunteered to lead rides. Vinny will lead the December
ride.

- The 12-December Holiday Party - at Betsy and Burnie M.'s
house was a huge success; we had our meeting then commenced to eating,
drinking and socializing. Thanks to the M.s for opening up their
home to CCCBA!

- Reported on the 12-November CBA workshop -
Cat/M./Mikey/Iris/Vinny represented Chatham CBA. During the day,
there were speakers from the NRA and professional speakers talking about
membership and legislative candidates. Later there was a banquet;
entertainment provided by <http://www.worldwidewillie.com/> Willie P.
Richardson. Cat showed membership the plaque received from the state
CBA for CCCBA's 15 yrs' anniversary. There was also an auction where
Chatham donated 2 pottery pieces with the $75 that had been approved
from CCCBA membership previously (actually, we ended up spending $65).
The auction raised well over $1500 for the State treasury.

Treasurer Reports - Jill gave account information at all 3 meetings to
include the update that the MRF check has been sent to the MRF for the
chapter's sustaining membership. Membership accepted Jill's report at
all 3 meetings.

Secretary's Reports - Membership accepted Cat's reports from the 3
meetings (October's had been sent out via email and the
November/December meetings were verbally reported at the
December/January meetings).

Legislative report - Vinny N - Vin gave updates at the November
and December meetings to include Tony Rand 's resignation and the loss
of funding Governor's Safety Committee. Burnie gave the Legislative
update at the December meeting using the update emailed from Vinny to
the membership. Some national issues highlighted are: The Pennsylvania
Noise legislation, Myrtle Beach Helmet lawsuits, the HIPAA loophole fix,
Right to Repair bill. International issues highlighted are the
Japanese motorcycle export numbers and the lawsuit brought by Australian
"bikies" against pubs. I've attached the January report in case you
did not receive it previously.

MSAP Report - Becky W. - 3 high schools will be scheduled to have
MSAP classes soon; still need to get evaluations processed. Regarding
the MSAP Ride on May 8 - Becky and Debbie G. will head this up.

OLD BUSINESS

that the class was well worth the cost and effort to attend. We hope to
send more members in the future.

CBA Awareness Signs

Wayne is looking into putting one in a neighbor's yard and continues to
look for spots to place the signs.

J&D Open House Ride - Bruce turned in the $75 earned from the Open House
ride. He reported there were not very many riders but the weather was
not the best anyway. M. reported that Jimmy is thinking of changing
the date of this annual event.

Polar Bear Run, 27-February (rain date is 6-March). 11am - Pittsboro
Council on Aging is the starting point. This is the ride to raise funds
and raise awareness for the Chatham Co. Council on Aging. Flyers are
available to distribute. Proceeds for the ride go to CoA, proceeds from
the 50/50 go to CCCBA. Becky talked to Jeannie at the center and they
will provide coffee/cocoa for registration. We could use some
cookies/coffee cake/etc. if anyone would like to volunteer to bring
something in. For lunch, Becky/M. will call/visit some of the Siler
City and surrounding area restaurants to see if they would like to
donate food. Becky has sent the flyer into the online Chatham Co.
Chatroom; she will also call the local newspaper about this event.
M. has had the flyer posted on CBA state website and Full Throttle's
Cruisin' calendar; Vinny has posted on nc.rider.com. Iris came up with
the idea that we donate $100 to the police who accompany the ride for
one of their funds. Assignments: Parking - Burnie, registration/1st
card - Jill/Iris, 50/50 - John H; Jill will be bringing our products to
sell; Bruce will lead the ride. We will ask Verlies/Ale House for gift
certificates. Burnie will get Lowes certificate for door prize. Vinny
will be in charge of music. Cars/trucks are welcome also. M. is to
talk to co-worker, Pernell G, and try to get him to bring his car club
out. CCCBA yard signs will be needed to post at the beginning (and
ending?) of the ride. Iris will talk to the crowd beforehand about
safety and accident scene management. M. has 50/50 tickets, poker
run sheets, cards. Trophies?

Central District Spoker Run 10-Apr - CCCBA is hosting the end of the
ride. M. has received the CoA contract rental of the Siler City
facility, $75 for rental. John H, who is in charge of soliciting door
prizes, will go to the Central District committee meeting on 16-Jan to
solicit the chapters for donations. Burnie will talk to Jimmy W.
re tshirt donation. Vinny will donate a Lowes certificate as a door
prize. Vinny will be in charge of music. . Bruce will lead the ride/
come up with route. No rain date on this run.

NEW BUSINESS

Motorcycle Only Roadblocks - Iris talked about this as it was brought up
at the October State meeting. These are roadblocks set up by law
enforcement to check for compliant helmets & intoxicated drivers. There
have been 3 of these so far in NC as far as we know. A CBA committee
has been put together to fight this (seen as discrimination); Iris is a
member of that committee. The committee is asking that if you know
someone who has been stopped, please pass on that person's name with
information on officer's name, day/time, etc. A letter will be drafted
by Randy Norris regarding this issue to be sent to legislators.

Iris H. - 2009 CCCBA member of the year - Iris was presented with a
recognition certificate and a gift certificate to her favorite
restaurant. She has become very active again in the CBA in 2009 to
include activities on the state level as well as chapter level. Iris is
also now our new CBA State Membership Director as a result of her
willingness to work as a team player in this capacity and step in
quickly when the need arose.

Products for CCCBA

- cafepress.com - Vinny has set us up with this website that
will provide people CCCBA products. There is no cost to CCCBA but the
benefit is advertisement as our logo is displayed on the products.
M. showed the members one of the shirts that was set up with our logo
on it and there was a positive response. There's lots of products from
which to choose. http://www.cafepress.com/ChathamCBA

- Also, please remember that Jill still has CCCBA shirts that

property. We have to find B1 zoned property or personal property to
put the signs out. Tony suggested we look into putting up a sign on Old No. 1 in Moncure as DOT has never exercised the Right of Way regulations there. We have a 60 day extension and have until 30-Sept to conform; if we don't conform, we will have to pay a penalty of $50/day. [NOTE:

Membership indicated they are supportive of this; more information forthcoming.

5-February and 5-March 2009 Meeting Minutes
Virlie’s Grill, Pittsboro, NC, 7pm

5-Mar Attendees –Mike/Cat M., Michael Lackey, Burnie J., Vinny N., Bill/Jean H., Tommy Little, Jill L., Iris H., Bruce M., Ed D., Burnie M., Bill Nesbitt, Roger G., Tommy Little.

5-Feb Attendees –Mike/Cat M., Becky W., Michael Lackey, Burnie J., Vinny N., Bill/Jean H., Tommy Little, Jill L., Iris H., Bruce M., Roger G., Greg M. and new member Bill Nesbitt. Also attending were guests Robert “Shaggy” Causey (CBA Central District Coordinator), JR Mann (former CCCBA member), and 2 friends of Burnie J..

Opening remarks – Mike M.
• M. gave an update on the State CBA meeting in January. See the meeting minutes in the state newsletter for specifics.
• Voting on constitutional changes will be held at the State CBA meeting in April. M. went through the proposed changes and CCCBA membership voted to approve the following:
o Proposed wording on how to terminate a membership
o Delete the presidents meeting from the constitution
o Bounced check policy

• Lobby Day - Becky/M. went to visit 4 representatives: Representatives Stam and Hackney, Senators Atwater and Stevens (left info as Stevens was out of office). Cat also attended but in lieu of visiting the representatives/senators, worked on the paperwork that was passed out to members in preparation for their visits.

• Council on Aging Run – Due to the rainy weather, we did not do the run but met for a while at the Pittsboro Council on Aging building. Pittsboro’s Mayor Voller was there and signed our proclamation for May to be Motorcycle Awareness Month in Pittsboro. Since we decided to not cook the hot dogs, CBA officers decided to pay Becky for the hot dogs and supplies and she would donate the food to the Council on Aging as they are victim to government cuts in their food services. We still managed to raise $200+ for the CoA and the $77 won by Vinny on 50/50 was donated back to the CBA. Afterwards, some of the participants went to the Brewery in Pittsboro for lunch. CCCBA would like to thank the state troopers who came out despite the foul weather in case they were needed to escort the run.

• CBA Central District Spoker Run – 25-April – we will hold registration 11-12:00 at Lowes parking lot in Pittsboro and leave around 12:00 for a country ride to The Other Place which is located outside of Burlington. M. and Cat rode up there to this hang-out a few weekends ago and reported that it’s a nice place for this event.

Central District Update – Shaggy gave a report on the EasyRiders Show in Charlotte; 5 BOD (Board of Directors) members worked the CBA booth at the show – they distributed a lot of CBA information and received 5 new memberships. One new member wants to start a new chapter in Iredell County (western NC) so the BOD will be working on that. Shaggy thanked CCCBA for their support via GB L. who provided tickets for the event so that the BOD members who worked the event didn’t have to pay admission.

Secretary’s report – (Feb) Cat M. sent out the January minutes via email prior to this meeting. Motion was made to accept the minutes, 2nd’ed and passed. (Mar) Minutes for February will be combined with March minutes (this document).
Treasurer’s report – (Feb/Mar) Jill gave update of monies in CCCBA account to include payments made for key tags, to state CBA for membership applicants and gift baskets reimbursement to Cat. Motion was made to accept Jill’s reports, 2nd’ed and passed.

Federal Issues
- Tax deduction in new stimulus package – tax break for purchase of new motorcycle.
- Get the Lead Out – A Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, effective 10-Feb-09, meant to protect children from lead laden products, has a huge negative impact on the ATV and motorbike industry as small amounts of lead may be embedded in alloys.

Chatham County Concerned Bikers Association (CCCBA)
PO Box 408, Apex NC 27502
1-May-08 2008 Meeting Minutes
The Scoreboard, Pittsboro NC, 7:00pm

Attendees: Jill L., Greg/Jennifer M., Bruce M., Ed D., Iris/Mikey H., Bruce L., Bruce M., Mike/Cat M., Vinny N..

President’s Opening Remarks – Mike M.

M. gave some highlights from the recent Sunday Executive Council meeting and thanked the members who attended the Saturday Committee meetings representing Chatham. You can read the detailed report in the state newsletter or on the state website, but highlights include:

· The State is looking at some cost-savings options. One option is that some members would not mind or would prefer to read the State newsletter online. If you would like to do this, please let Cat know. For now, we are just gathering the number of folk who would like to do this so you would keep receiving your newsletter until further notice.

· Quigley Update – we have talked about this as a chapter in the past but it was brought up at the State meeting to go back to chapters to see if they want to donate any funds to ABATE of CA for this effort. After discussion, a motion was made to not donate as a chapter, 2’nd’ed and passed. (Vinny voted against the motion.)

· To be voted upon at the next state meeting: Increase in membership dues - renewal dues would cost the same as new membership. After discussion, Chatham supports this initiative and will vote accordingly at the State meeting in July.

· L. Anne Redwine MSAP award information. M. read from criteria. Vinny has already submitted a few nominations.

Constitution changes to be voted upon at the July State meeting:
Article V, Section 8 currently reads: “20% of the net profit made on any non-charitable event conducted by a chapter or district shall be assessed by the State Treasury.” Proposal is to add the following after the preceding sentence: “Each chapter shall have at least one event of this type each year.” After discussion, CCCBA decided to vote 3 yes, 2 no (each chapter has 5 votes).
M. read the changes that passed (see state meeting minutes)
State event will be 29-31 August (Labor Day weekend) – noon Friday to noon Sunday, Ole Gilliam Mill, Sanford NC; this will be an informal gathering of CBA members but also open to the public; $10 donation per person.
Secretary’s report – Cat M. . April meeting minutes were emailed to membership at an earlier date. Motion was made to accept minutes; 2nd’ed and passed.

Treasurer’s report – Jill L.. Jill gave an update on CCCBA treasury; motion was made to accept Jill’s banking info; 2nd’ed and passed.

MSAP Report – Vinny N. for Becky W.

PTA carnival – Becky, Vin, and Burnie went to talk to people at the carnival about CBA. Vinny made a request about purchasing a banner to advertise CCBA and the MSAP program so we’d have it available at events such as this. The chapter asked Vinny to look into cost.
Becky attended the driver’s Education seminar in High Point.
Burrito Bash – 11-Aug - to take place at the Pittsboro General Store to benefit CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue) and Chatham Co. CBA. CARE has already collected items for auction; we need to also get some donations together as these items will be combined.
Over 1700 students trained from CCCBA’s MSAP program

Legislative Report – Vinny N.

State Lobby Day – Vinny needs confirmation by 15-May if participants want him to contact the appropriate legislators to set up an appointment to meet. Reminder: CCCBA will buy lunch for members who show up for Lobby Day.
CBA Central District – voted to give $500 to Doc Ski to help with Lobby Day expenses.
Learners permit bill – Vinny requested the members to write their reps
Action alert – Safety Center at UNC; need members to send communication to their senators asking them to support the “Motorcycle Safety Center” proposed by Senate Bill 1121 which would support the development and evaluation of a ‘crash-prevention’ approach to motorcycle safety.
Mary Peter’s issue –Both Democrats and Republicans seem to not embrace her ideas regarding helmet laws but the MRF is still watching her.
Senator Frank Lautenberg maybe on the way out; he has been the number one helmet law advocate; Democrat (NJ) Rep. Robert Andrews has announced his bid for that Senate seat and has vowed to vote against any mandatory helmet legislation.
