Minutes for last meeting recorded by Joan Williams.
Motion to accept report made by John Williams and seconded by Amy Buchanan. Motion passed unanimously.
Treasury report submitted by Amy Buchanan.
We have $1,200 in our account. We will need $5,000 for budgeted items for the rest of the year. A discussion was held as to how to make this shortfall up. The Pre-MOTM party can be combined with the Fall picnic and the Annual Meeting budget can be reduced to $100. The Christmas party committee will also look at ways to reduce their budget. Dues for 2018, which were increased, will begin to come in soon. Also, the Leadership Council did not spend all their funds.
Motion to accept report made by John Williams, seconded by Kari Sheets. Motion passed unanimously.
