Program:

Pat read the minutes of the Board Meeting. The Presidents’ projects will be family literacy(Cheryl)  and connecting with local schools via their Robotics programs.(Pat).

 

Budget:. Our Club income is down about 25%, which has impacted the Operating Budget and caused the Board to consider further reductions in expenditures. A dues increase is already reflected in your current bill, which you should have received by now.  Other fund-raising projects, in addition to the annual fund-raiser (to be held on October 24th), are under consideration, but probably can’t be implemented until next year.

 

Committees: If you have already indicated an interest in chairing a particular committee, feel free to go ahead and solicit members. 

 

A complete copy of the Board minutes can be found on the Club’s website.

 

Meeting adjourned at 1:00 PM with the Four Way Test.
