TATC General Membership Meeting

8 Sep 2021 8:17 PM | Anonymous

TATC Club members, this month we will return to a Zoom-only General Membership meeting.  A number of Board members heard from you that last month’s hybrid in-person/Zoom meeting suffered from poor audio.  We have yet to completely sort out that problem--but we are working on it.  Potential venues are also a problem.  The Pretlow Library only offers its meeting room on Saturdays and only until 6:00 pm (according to the voice recording). City parks in Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach are now closing their pavilions at 7:30 as the hours of daylight decline. The Virginia Beach Central Library (Oberndorf) shuts its meeting rooms at 7:30 as well.
Last month, we tried moving the meeting back to 6:00 pm, but that was too early for many of our members.  So, we are back to Zoom.  Nevertheless, we will be on the hunt for a good location for the October meeting, and with luck, we will have solved the audio problem and can do it as a hybrid meeting.
The General Membership Meeting agenda is below along with the Zoom invitation.  If you have any last-minute suggestions for the agenda, please email me at
Take care, and I hope to see you all on Wednesday night at 7:00 pm.
