Treasurer’s Report

Tim shared financials from the 2013 year end, showing $13,573.26 in the account. The balance in the account as of August, 2014 is $12,800.18. Tim says we can present the 2013 year end and the 2014 to date numbers at the annual meeting. Tim also noted that LBMAA will provide a scholarship to a Class of 2015 member and that expense is not shown at this time.

Brad moved to approve the Treasurer’s report; Paula seconded. Report approved. There was some discussion on membership. Susie said the dues statements will go out this week. Tim will do some analysis of membership and report on former members who have not renewed. The board feels current members reaching out to former members is a good recruitment as well as fundraising strategy.

Committee Reports


There are 34 paid members so far. Susie will send out another reminder. There was discussion on digging into the “inactive” list and personally contacting people who have not renewed in 2014. Tim will send out that list to the board members. The board will discuss a strategy at a future meeting.
