Approval of agenda: (Attachment 1)a. Changes: Board Finance Chair report will come from Convention program Governance Committee report in unfinished business Report on Crazy Horseb. Agenda approved with changes.

4. Approval of May 18, 2021, Electronic Board Meeting (EBM) Minutes:Approved.5. Reminder of Standing Meeting Rules. The central part is Robert’s Rules ofOrder. No one speaks twice till all have spoken and speak only twice.6. Announcement of results of At-Large Board Member Election: In a specialcalled vote after the May EBM, the Board approved Dr. Kathleen Connell to be thesecond at-large member based on rules established for approval of suchmembers. Dr. Connell was not able to attend this meeting.7. Reports of Officers:a. Board Chair (verbal, submitted by David Bonewitz):This will not be the usual kind of report (that is in my Convention Report); insteadthis is more of a series of challenges.We got the Bylaws updated, but there are some elements that were missed—e.g.,definition of a quorum (filled in by definition provided under Texas law), timing ofterms for National Officers (following the guidance provided for RegionalDirectors), etc. So, there is some cleanup work to be done here.Also, frankly, I have come to realize that I don’t like the titles of Board Chair andBoard Vice Chair. While this was driven by Texas law terminology (giving specificduties based on position titles), I recommend revisiting to evolve into somethinglike National President to distinguish from Corporation President, who is the CEO.Honestly, the title Board Chair just doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like NationalPresident. This is especially true when talking to people outside of AVA.We managed to get the NEC Handbook redrafted into the Board Handbook(draft), principally thru Butch’s hard work. (Thank you, Butch). The next Boardneeds to pare it down to the real essentials. Too much in there that may belong ina Policy Manual, but not the Board Handbook. While talking about paring thingsdown, I’d challenge the next Board to cut back on the rules—there are just waytoo many rules impacting the clubs. Now the Board shouldn’t be doing thecutting; that’s what committees are for. However, the Board directs the action tobe taken and approves the final result.

Two elephants in the room for the near future must always be Olympiad and aWalking App. These two elements can make a world of difference for AVA.Four years ago, it seemed that the NEC spent most of its time down in the weeds.We now have a Board that (most of the time) thinks and acts strategically. Thischange in culture takes time and can be frustrating. The challenge is to continuethe process. Maybe it’s a different way to hold meetings, or maybe it’s a way tofurther define the roles of the RD and DRD. Whatever it is, AVA must continue toevolve.We have been very successful in obtaining two of the potential three At-LargeBoard Members. This was a big step for AVA, and I believe it will pay bigdividends.AVA must continue to promote change with such things as a new business model,moving everything to digital, and strongly promoting our mission and vision in ourlocal communities.Most of you are rolling off the Board, but you can still make a difference. Get onone or more committees and provide the benefit of your experience to those whofollow. Energize those around you. Promote change! Stay positive! And stayinvolved!b. Board Vice Chair (Attachment 2): In addition to the written report, ViceChair Nancy Wittenberg added the next two years will be a time of transition, andstrategic thinking is key. Nancy has a passion for keeping walks when clubs goaway and for making life easier for clubs. She applauded the AVA move into SanAntonio in two neighborhoods that allows the CEO to get out into the community.She looks forward to the Olympiad in 2023, as this big event will bring AVA muchvisibility. Finally, the upcoming retreat is important for coalescing the new Boardinto a strategic-thinking organization.c. Board Secretary (Attachment 3). The Board Secretary job is about details,and Cecilia has enjoyed keeping the minutes and engaging in committee work.d. Board Treasurer. Written report from Convention Program:

The AVA BOD approved a balanced budget for calendar year 2021. Budgetrevenues were helped by a new revenue source from our partner Element3Health (E3H). Also boosting revenues this year are the 22nd Biennial Convention inMadison, Wisconsin and the amazingly generous contributions through the BigGive fundraiser.Thank you to all those walkers who got out there and walked during thegeneral COVID-19 lockdowns. Revenues from traditional events suffered fromgovernment orders that limited group events. However, revenues from yearround and seasonal walks significantly increased over the budgeted amount!During 2020, the AVA received 50,700 from the federal governmentthrough the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). As you may know, the PPP is aloan designed to provide an incentive for small businesses to keep their workerson payroll. The PPP loan can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits,and may be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, and utilities. In order for thePPP loan to be forgiven, the AVA was required to maintain employees and paylevels and spend at least 60% of the loan on payroll costs. Thanks to the incredibleefforts of the AVA National Office, the full amount of the 50,700 PPP loan andinterest were forgiven!You may have heard there was a second round of PPP loans offered. In2021, the AVA applied for an additional 50,700 in the second round. Therequirements for loan forgiveness are essentially the same as the first round, sothe AVA expects that its second loan and interest will also be forgiven.8. CEO Report (Attachments 4 and 5):a. Attachment 4 of the CEO report covers administrative issues, such aspersonnel, partnerships, special programs, and club status; financial data; and anupdated incident report. In his report, CEO Henry Rosales urged clubs to visit theElement 3 Health booth at the Convention.b. Attachment 5 is a report on Acceptance of New, Reactivated, andDeactivated Clubs. The Board voted to accept the report. Discussion focused onhow to keep walks from clubs that deactivate. To avoid placing extra burden onclubs, state associations, and regional directors, several members suggestedputting active walks on the Online Start Box and archiving inactive walks topreserve the trails for future use.

9. Awards Committee Reports (Attachment 6)Carl Cordes, PA RD and Awards Committee Chair, stated a majoraccomplishment was preparation of a policy revision to make Section 3 on awardsclearer. The Awards Committee moves that the Board accept the policy rewrite.Coming from a committee, the motion did not require a second.Motion: Approve changes to the Policy Manual under Awards.Discussion: Carl noted that the changes include new Board titles, whichbrings an issue for the President’s Award and what it should be called in thefuture. No awards were changed in the rewrite.Passed on voice vote10. Unfinished Business:a. Motion on 2023 membership meeting, presented by GovernanceCommittee member Butch Spaulding (NC RD)Title: Split General Membership Meeting for 2023Motion: We move that the General Membership Meeting for 2023 be held as asplit meeting. Session 1 to be held during the week of the Olympiad and the IMLTexas Trail Roundup. Session 2 to be held online during the month of June, 2023.Exact dates and times to be determined at a later date.Summary of Proposed Action: The Board has previously voted to not have aregular Convention in 2023 due to Olympiad being held that year in San Antonio.However, the Bylaws require that we hold a General Membership Meeting on theodd years. This motion would allow the General Membership Meeting to be heldwith the in-person portion during the week of Olympiad and the online portion inJune. Everything else (exact timing, what is on the agenda for each session, etc.) isdetail that does not need to be decided by the Board. All the Board must do isdirect those who are doing the planning to conduct a split General MembershipMeeting as stated.Submitted By: Governance Committee

Seconded By: Committee Action/No Second RequiredName of person submitting proposed motion: Governance CommitteeBoard Action: Passed on voice voteb. Crazy Horse. National leadership was represented by David Bonewitz,Butch Spaulding, Carl Cordes, and Jerry Wilson. In the past, canned food wasaccepted for entry. This year, the organization charged half the normal entry feeinstead of accepting food. About 3000 walkers participated on day one, 2000 onday two. The Black Hills Volkssport Association sold at least 30 new walkerpackets to people from 11 states.

AVA is a national membership organization, though we haveissues defining what membership is.

We should find a way to wrap club members into nationalmembers. Tom Baltes, NW RD, echoed appreciation of David’s and Nancy’s leadershipand of the National Office headed up by Henry. Also, thanks to the ITCommittee for great work. Sharon Moats will become the new NW RD andEd Hainline the new NW DRD.

Lucy Yother, SC RD, said it has been an honor to serve on the board for thelast four years and will help any way she can in the future. Mike Green, AT RD, read his report from the Convention program:It is my strong opinion that the most successful clubs in the Atlantic region(and the AVA) are those who schedule group walks at the same time and dayof the week. This regularity inspires prospective walkers to plan their futureappointments and other activities, to avoid conflicting with the club’s weekly“walk day.”In this day and age, there are many ways to find walking opportunities. Thevalue that AVA adds to walking is through its clubs. It is AVA clubs who create,monitor, and maintain routes who, by following AVA standards, policies, andtraditions/culture, create a uniform event expectation with a quality and socialexperience for walks throughout the US. Clubs should rightfully be proud oftheir important role in creating this uniform event expectation. It is thisexpectation that permits participants to confidently find/discover and do thewalks, in an otherwise unfamiliar location. AVA walks have a precise start/endpoint, driving direction and addresses to the start/end point, predeterminedwalk lengths, a well-defined walk difficulty rating, and step-by-step walk

directions and/or maps that are designed and maintained by a local club thatoften pass by points of historical/cultural interest.The current club officers need to regularly point out the unique value of AVAevents to their membership to help them realize the honor of serving as anAVA club leader with the hope of attracting future club leaders to continue theAVA legacy of Fun, Fitness, and Fellowship. Henry Rosales, CEO, briefing on Convention logistics David Bonewitz thanked all the Board members for changing the Boardculture to more of a strategic focus, but there is more to do, becausechange is tough. Also, thanks to Henry for his continued hard work. It hasbeen an honor to serve as President/Board Chair.15. Adjournment: 4:17pm CDTRespectfully submitted,Cecilia MinerAVA Secretary

Can Volksport and Volksmarching survive/adaptPOSTED ON REDDIT, by Brian DermThese are from the AVA (American Volksport Association) website:Mission Statement: Promote and organize noncompetitive fitness activities thatencourage lifelong fun, fitness and friendship for all ages and abilities.Vision Statement: Increasingly engage Americans in lifelong walking and othernoncompetitive physical fitness· activities.Yet events held in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, a metroplex of over 7,000,000 people, drawvery few people on the best days/most interesting walk events. The typical programmember seems to be retired or close to retirement. There's a glaring discrepancybetween the mission statement/vision statement and reality, and I just have never seenany effort to deal with that.I'll be brief, but I could write pages about what I believe could have helped theorganization grow instead of decline. As "America's Walking Club", this organizationwas perfectly poised to take advantage of America's interest in fitness and walking.When Fitbit sales began to take off, the program should have changed to incorporateencouraging and rewarding the 10,000 steps crowd. Today, there is a growingparticipation by the public in medal programs for completing personal distance goalssuch as and similar "vitual events". On any given day in just the northDallas portion of the DFW metroplex, I can join a group of walkers via MEETUP thatwalks 4-6 miles on hike/bike trails in this area.Yet the Volksport organization is tied to only rewarding distance credit via sanctionedevents. Perhaps they should have kept their pins and books for these sanctioned eventsbut also created a program within the program that recognized and rewarded self reported fitness efforts/distance accomplishments. That could have grown theirmembership. The thought that they've limited "America's Walking Club" to only givecredit from events that actually require DRIVING or FLYING to attend to earn a creditreward just doesn't make sense in today's world.I wouldn't really be posting this if I didn't care. I own the books, I have a few event pins,but haven't taken part in over 15 years. I truly wish the Volksport program was moresuccessful. As a person actually pursuing "lifelong walking and other noncompetitivephysical fitness activities" (see vision statement), I wish the program could find a waythat rewards those things better, while still hosting events and volunteer opportunities topromote and reward socialization at the local and global level.Attachment 8

Jun 29, 2021 · Texas Trail Roundup. Session 2 to be held online during the month of June, 2023. Exact dates and times to be determined at a later date. Summary of Proposed Action: The Board has previously voted to not have a regular Convention in
