Annual meeting and elections

October 15, 2017, from 2 to 4 pm

Our 2017 Membership meeting was held at Rancho Carrillo (the old Mathew Kelly ranch). We were first given a tour by Kevin Bender, former archivist at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park and currently researching and writing the first full-length biography of Leo.

After a call to order, the last year’s minutes were approved, and President Ginny Unanue gave a presentation. We have a new board member: Ken Langen, a long time resident of Carlsbad, who will be serving as Vice President. Connie Trejo will now serve as CHS Barrio Ambassador. The CHS By-Law’s change to allow board members to serve up to four consecutive two year terms was approved. Our membership has increased significantly as a result of the efforts of our board member Marvin Sipple. Finances are in good shape.

A big, Thank You Kevin Bender!, for our Annual Meeting Program. Kevin a CHS  member,  and former  Carrillo Ranch employee  was involved in the creation of the newest  Interpretive  Carrillo Ranch display. Kevin suggested this site as our Annual Meeting event, and lead our   Carlsbad Historical  Society Annual Meeting program, and tour Of Carrillo Ranch.

The Board of Directors welcome all suggestions for future events and programs, please let us know your ideas.
