Leadership is currently Robert Lipe, President; Stephen Ziehr, Vice President; and Robert Cole, Secretary as documented on the incorporation charter with TN. We do not have an elections process yet, as these were the founding officers and we have not gotten to that point yet in development of Bylaws.
Admins and officers do not receive payment of any sort from the club. In fact, over $1k of funds to kickstart the club (IRS fees, initial insurance, web platform, setting up previous events, etc) were from personal contributions of these individuals and a few very generous folks that helped us get things off the ground. Funds raised are not to reimburse anyone for those past costs. Dues and donations are strictly to make the club self-sufficient and ensure that we can support future events without having to dig into pocketbooks or ask for one-off contributions for individual events every time.
The organization is run with representation from multiple regions of Tennessee, with additional leaders (not officers) being coordinated from the Chattanooga and Memphis areas (with Lipe and Ziehr in Nashville and Robert Cole in Knoxville) so that we can ensure we are representing the entirety of the state. Although a majority of members are inherently from Nashville due to the build out of Service Centers in Tennessee, we are working to grow the other areas as well.
Thank you for joining, and we look forward to seeing you!
