Board Meeting Minutes September 2013
Wenatchee Sunrise Rotary
Board of Directors Meeting
Monday September 9th, 2013
Attended: Adamson, Walker, Fukuzawa, Carrell, Rosenthal
Absent: Higgins, Eastman, Looney, Masuda, Vice President (need to fill)
Approval of August Minutes - Approved as written.
Review of Financials (Carrell) - No August financials presented. Carrell shared that he'd checked into using "Square" for credit card payments. We would be charged 2.75% per swipe whereas Cashmere charges 2% but due to the monthly charges by Cashmere it could be a wash. He still needs to find out if multiple squares can be used under one account.
IRS 990 Tax File - Questions still remain regarding Passport Club, Program Expenses, and how the Community Foundation figures in to our filing.
Vice President Position - Still need to fill. So far everyone asked declined to do the job.
Youth Exchange Student - Walker had previously emailed out info. on Kwan's host family and how to contact her. Discussed using a debit vs check for her expenses and it was decided a check is better as would need to set up another account for a debit card.
Float - option to purchase (Looney) – Looney absent so may discuss later.
Grant Seminar Training - Oct 5 in Moses Lake and Oct 26 in Oysoyus. We just need one additional person to go as Walker has already gone for this year. Carrell expressed an interest and will get back to us regarding his availability.
Budget, Committee Chairs and all that jazz.. Alan is behind- Work in progress.
Christmas Competition - The Red Lion is asking service clubs if they'd like to compete by each decorating a tree. Winning club would receive $500 for charity of their choice and then after 12/20 could auction off their tree or donate it to a needy family. Board was open to the idea so Walker will present the idea to the club at tomorrows meeting.
- Michelle Dodge is transferring to the East Wenatchee club. Carrell said he would pro-rate the corporate membership for July/Aug dues and then charge Adan as an individual member for the rest of the upcoming months. Discussed membership in general and Kris Pomianaks name came up again. Rosenthal will make contact again to see if she can come to a meeting.
- Still no Bike Ride Chair and no meetings scheduled yet.
- Make a Difference Day October 26 this year. Discussed small projects in general and the need to get new members involved. Walker mentioned adopting a part of a hiway as a possibility. Walker will bring this topic up with the club tomorrow.
- Member attendance in August better than July's (69%). Rosenthal didn't have figure at meeting but in typing notes found that August attendance was 75%.
NEXT BOARD MEETING Monday 0700 October 14 at the Wild Huckleberry
