§ Tax exempt status - Keith still working on this with Linda. He believes we may need assistance with filling out the form. Will continue to discuss during meetings until more information is gathered.

She will start to develop a budget for the conference and work other issues. Keith advised the contract still needs to be signed once we determine our financial status.
§ New attendee luncheon – Michelle and Lesil previously talked and developed a menu option of a boxed lunch for approximately 10 new attendees and all Board members at a cost of $24 each person. Everyone liked this idea but Dina advised she was hesitant only because the financial information still needs to be determined. This item will stay on the agenda to discuss again next month once a budget has been determine and financial report received.
§ Registration amount – A lot of discussion about the registration fee. Keith proposed the amount of $100 however Dan, Lesil and Ira we concerned about this being a financial burden since the reimbursement amount from the 911 Board is lower for the Fall conference. More discussion will be needed once budget is determined.
