San Diego Table Tennis Association Board Meeting January 28, 2014 Balboa Park Activity Center

This meeting is open to all members of the SDTTA.

 Call to order 7:16 pm by James.

SDTTA Board Members Present: Bob Koch, James Kahn, Kiet Tran, Behnam Kazemi and John Anderson.

SDTTA Board Member(s) absent:  Mark Adelman

SDTTA Member(s) Present: Simon Lee

Communications not on agenda have a limit of 3 minutes.

Treasurer’s Report:  Treasurer’s Report was tabled until the next meeting so that Bill Chang can get with the new treasurer, John Anderson, and update him with the club’s current financial state and turn over the database to him.

Webmaster Report/ Daryl Sterling – No report.

Membership Report – The 2014 membership drive  is in full force and we are requiring all members to fill out the yellow waiver forms, since most of them have been misplaced or lost. The online members database is woefully out-of-date and Bob and John have begun getting the database current and removing old and/or bogus entries. Daryl has setup the online payment process to send a copy of the Pay Pal emails to Bob. These are the equivalent of the yellow waiver forms and will be kept on file and also will be proof when handing out the 2014 membership stickers.

Equipment Report:  The club recently sold one of the blue tables to a member for $600. We are looking to sell at least 1 more table. We need to make sure we have a least 28 tables for the Neil Smyth tournament.

Action Items:

  1. Introduction of new board members. John Anderson, Behnam Kazemi and Bob Koch were newly elected.

  2. Vote on new board positions:

Chairman – James Kahn

Vice Chairman – Behnam Kazemi

Executive Director – Kiet Tran

Treasurer – John Anderson

Secretary – Bob Koch

Public Relations Director – Mark Adelman

All board positions were voted on and seconded by the Board.

  1. Discussed putting together a “traveling” tournament team that will play the other local clubs. Members will qualify for positions, which should make for a more competitive and dynamic team.

  2. The new club shirts have arrived and the board voted on which logo will be printed on the shirts. The board voted unanimously for the new logo. The idea was discussed of getting sponsor logos printed on the shirts.

  3. John Anderson thanked Bob Koch for donating a Windows 7 laptop to the club. The laptop will be used by the treasurer in the day-to-day operations of the club.

  4. The Rehab games are scheduled for February 1st, from 9am to 2pm, and the club has offered the first 3 row of tables for the event. As always, volunteers are welcomed.

  5. Club member Simon Lee was on hand and expressed interest in playing a larger role within the club. He also graciously extended the use of his restaurants for our monthly Board meetings.


The motion to adjourn was made by James and seconded by John at 8:25pm.

The next meeting is February 11, 2014.

Respectfully Submitted,

Bob Koch, SDTTA Secretary
