The Carolina Austin Healey Club met on Monday, June 17, 2019 with 32 members in attendance. In Rick’s absence, Charlie Grobusky started the meeting by asking if the minutes from May were approved as printed, a motion was made to accept and the minutes were approved.

Charlie then went on to introduce Dennis Conley’s brother, Dana Conley. Dana belongs to the British Car Club in Tampa. Charlie then introduced Tod Schupbach, from Buffalo owns a 1966 3000 in Old English White. Tod also told us that he owns a Jaguar and belongs to the Jaguar Club in Buffalo.

In Ted Sjolander’s absence, Charlie gave a report and also told us that the IRS has re-established us as a non-profit and so we are officially incorporated.

Priscilla Dabney gave a Membership Report with 109 members.

Ed Farnell was praised and thanked for a great job he did on his first Newsletter.

Bill Walton gave a Delegate’s Report from the meeting he and Rick attended at the Southeastern in Little Switzerland. It seems the National Club is having trouble finding clubs to host the Conclaves. They are looking into locations first then find someone to host it. Asheville was mentioned with the Biltmore House included. Bill asked the membership if there was any interest in the CAHC hosting this event and that we should think about it.
The Conclave rotation so far is =
2020 - Tennessee, Smokey Mountain Club
2021 - Atlanta,? Dillard House, Georgia
2022 - Atlanta ? or Tampa
2023 or 2024 - CAHC or Middle Tennessee
2025 - Triad
2021 and 2022 might be a flip
