Annual General Meeting of the Clan MacLeod Society, USA, Inc

CLAN MACLEOD SOCIETY on Kilted Cruise – JUNE 17 – 19, 2005

The Annual General Meeting of the Clan MacLeod Society, USA, Inc., was held on board the Sovereign of the Seas, a cruise ship out of Port Canaveral, Florida, on June 18, 2005, with President William C. MacLeod presiding.   Reports of activities since the last meeting were given by each of the Council members.  It was agreed that the Annual General Meeting in 2006 would be held at the same time as Parliament in Dunvegan, Scotland on the Isle of Skye from July 26th to August 5, 2006.  Details of this meeting will be forthcoming in the next editions of the Clan MacLeod Newsletter and Magazine.

The members of Council and Officers were elected for the coming year and they are: William C. MacLeod, President; Anne MacLeod, Secretary; Richard MacLeod, Treasurer; Jay McClure, Newsletter Editor; Dixie McCaskill Lewis, Genealogy; John MacLeod Tutterow, Counsel; John B. MacLeod, Chairman Dunvegan Foundation; Franklin Wyatt, III, Awards; Gloria McLeod, Publicity and Recording Secretary; Norman Livermore, Culture; Rev. Dr. James A. McLeod, Chaplain; William G. MacLeod, Internet Editor; Regional VPs - Donald MacLeod, Robert MacLeod, Richard Rowley, John N. MacLeod, Arthur J. Nicol, Franklin Wyatt III, Larry McLeod, Douglas Beaton, Judy McClure Wisehart, Weeden Nichols, Michael Barger and Penny McLeod Degraff.  Trustees for the Dunvegan Foundation, the charitable arm of the Clan MacLeod Society, were also elected.

The business portion of the cruise was handled as briefly as possible in order for the attendees to enjoy the activities on board the ship and to go ashore at Nassau and CocoCay, the docking ports.  The time ashore at CocoCay was cut short by a heavy thunderstorm but that did not dampen the spirit of the hearty MacLeod group.

Arthur J. Nicol, Regional Vice President of the Upper Midwest Region, was voted Clansperson of the Year by members of Clan MacLeod Society in recognition of his outstanding service to the Society.  Art has loyally attended all Scottish Highland Games in his very large Region and has spread Clan MacLeod’s heritage in the states of North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  The group also recognized his wife, Audrey, who accompanies her husband to all regional Games and other clan activities. 

 Jay McClure, Past Regional Vice President of the Southeast Region of the Clan MacLeod Society, with the help of his wife, Pam, and other officers in the Southeast Region, made all arrangements for the cruise.  Clan MacLeod Society had a memorable and wonderful time and we thank the Southeast Region for their hard work in arranging all details connected with the cruise.
