Approval of Budget
On a motion byAndrew Gyourko, second by Lynne Seward, the proposed budget was approved with the addition of a $1,000 expense category for Member Recruitment. Jennifer explained that this budget was more detailed in its expense categories and that she was being more diligent in assigning expenses to the “Lobbying” cost center which drives some of the proposed changes.
On a motion byAndrew Gyourko, second by Lynne Seward, the Board approved making the membership “year” (which is a calendar year) begin on the first of October for new members. This will be an incentive to come to the conference as the membership will then be for up to 15 months. The Board agreed to make this retroactive to include those who had joined in October of 2011.
Jennifer presented the letter regarding “registered agent” from John O’Grady. The Board, on a motion byNancy Hopkins-Garriss, second by Lynne Seward, accepted the proposal from McGuire Woods that will transfer the agency to CT Corporation.
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
