Annual Meeting 2018

Annual Membership Meeting Moved to Fall

For years, the annual meeting was held in the spring…a good time to celebrate the academic year being completed, but often a time with lots of competition from other events (and often fine weather). This year we’ve decided to try a fall date – October 21 – in hopes of a better fit for our members. You’ll be hearing more about details as the time draws nearer, but save the date on your calendar now!

Annual Meeting 2016

The 19th CVEC Annual Meeting

…was held at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Northfield, on the beautiful spring day of May 1, 2016.

About 70 of us gathered at 2:00 for punch and conversation in the lobby outside the meeting room. Lots of friends from past classes, some curious new folks, instructors about to be honored, Board members to lobby…

After a bit, we were invited inside for pie and ice cream.

Once appetites were sated, Board Chair Jerry Mohrig began the short business meeting. We elected Board members, recognized instructors who had recently completed teaching 5, 10, and 15 courses, honored retiring instructors and other members who had completed significant terms of service.

At about 3:10, Jerry introduced featured speaker Richard Schulte, who regaled us with tales of his daydreams inspired by the Harper/Hanson class on aviation history last fall, in the guise of “CVEC Courses and Long Term Memories.”


Following general laughter and applause, the meeting adjourned at 3:40.
