Review Minutes

Draft minutes of 12 October 2010 were reviewed.  A motion to approve was submitted and seconded.  Board approved minutes with unanimous vote.

Treasurer’s Report

Dave Jackson provided report of the board’s account balances.  We have $xxxxx in the various accounts.  Jackson also provided a 2010 budget sheet with variances and account/balances.  Jackson spoke about the need to keep better track of gross receipts and reports to IRS, which board approved.  This will protect the WPSD if audited.   


No significant change in the total members in our area (925). 88 Lifetime members.


Board discussed the process of changing the website over to Google and Jackson reminded board members that he sent out invitations to view blogs and data online.
