Due to the illness of Janet Barnard, no up to date report was available. Jim Beisner is filling in with the basic Treasurer’s duties until Janet Barnard regains her health. He reported that the overall financial picture looked slightly better than in the previous year. Any Governor with questions is welcome to contact him.
- The financial health of the Organization remains good including our investments, donations, and dues collections.
- Because of Janet Barnard’s illness, she was not able to provide a budget for 2017. We will use the figures from the 2016 budget for the time being recognizing that the new scholarship program will require some additional expenditures. She will provide an updated budget for 2017 when she regains her health.
- Communication issues with some of the Governors remains a problem and needs to be addressed.
There was no old business
