Council of Administration Board Room Votes
Since last reported, there have been three issues decided by votes cast in the Council of Administration Electronic Boardroom. The results are as follows:
In a vote called on February 18, 2001, unanimous approval was given to Major General James H. Wilson Camp No. 1, Department of Tennessee, to install it's officers after the date prescribed by the Constitution and Regulations.
A vote that some Council of Administration Members considered difficult, was that of the question of awarding the gold star of the Meritorious Service Award to Brother Dick Dugan for his work in preserving the graves of twelve Civil War Veterans. The question was defeated by a margin of 4 to 5, in a vote called on February 22, 2001.
In a vote called on April 15, 2001, the Council of Administration approved, by an 8 to 0 margin, to accept a proposal of Senior Vice-Commander-in-Chief and Publisher of the Banner, George Powell. This allows S.U.V.C.W. to enter in an agreement with Mr. John M. Hart, Jr., of Dunmore Publishing, Inc., to have The Banner professionally edited, produced and mailed at the rate of $4,265 per 24 page edition of 7000 issues, plus postage. Part of this agreement includes the sale of advertising by Dunmore Publishing, Inc. to be published in the Banner, at the commission rate of 20 Percent. The proceeds of the advertising will be used to offset the cost of the publication of the Banner. Also approved was the use of a protective wrapper for mailing of the Banner, at $464 per edition, which could also be used for advertising. <
