Treasurer’s Report Accepted


The brochure is 99% completed.  We are waiting on 1 ad, and it should be printed this week.  The board recognizes and thanks the people who spent so much time and effort putting together the brochure this year.


Jerry would like us to examine the uniform policy to see if we want to get more specific about how the uniform policy is worded.  He would like us to come up with any suggestions and send them to him.  We will address this next meeting

2016 Budget

The budget for 2016 is markedly different than 2015.  The reason for this was the influx of cash we invested and spent on equipment upgrades including stands for both the BCB and Swing Time Band, the equipment trailer, new website, etc.

Our income for the Community Foundation is finally going to mature.  This will affect our income soon.

The contribution from individuals number has been reduced because we do not usually make the revenue number budgeted.

Lloyd will give Jerry a list of members who have not paid their dues so that we can address any non-payment issues.

We will hire an accountant to examine our books.

We will be increasing Ron’s stipend $300 to help offset the Social Security taxes he pays.  We will revisit this discussion at a later time.  Christy will research what we decided last time.

Bob thinks we should increase the misc. portion of the equipment budget to help offset expected maintenance.  That line item is now $1,000.  Bob will look up the cost of a spare tire for the trailer.

Motion to accept the budget as amended: Doug.  Phil seconded.

Budget passes with one opposed.

The board thanks Lloyd for everything he’s done for the budget.

Cancelled Concert Communication

Christy will look into setting up a mass texting list to help advise members when a concert is cancelled.

Arrival of Trailer

Bob will think about the standard time the trailer will show up.

Don motions to adjourn.  Phil seconds.

Doug wants us to consider hauling of the music stands for next meeting.

Meeting adjourned at 10:06pm.
