  • Attendees were welcomed to the special meeting of the voting members of the Minnesota Therapeutic Recreation Association (MTRA).
  • There was a quorum. According to Section 3 Article 9 of the bylaws, a quorum consists of the voting members present at any duly called membership meeting.
  • The one agenda item was read – to discuss and vote on the board’s decision to dissolve MTRA due to the continuing difficulty of finding people to serve on the board and because the current board members have served an extended period and wish to leave the board.
  • Karen made a motion to ratify the board’s decision to dissolve MTRA. Kayla seconded the motion.
  • Members discussed the motion.
  • Members voted on the motion using an anonymous poll. The motion passed 7 to 1.
  • Jenn briefly outlined the legal process of dissolution including that association funds, after all expenses are paid, are distributed according to the bylaws and non-profit law.
  • 2.      Stacy made a motion to adjourn. Stephanie seconded. The motion passed. The meeting adjourned at approximately 7:25 pm.
