I. President’s Report

  • President Frankenfeld presented the Board with his recent debit card purchases. $2.74 to the Post Office.
  • President Frankenfeld is still trying to get in touch with composer Phil Koplow regarding a possible recording project.
  • Member Paige Kossuth will be billed for 1 quarter of dues and will then resign. She is moving to Utah.
  • Barbara Owens, International Field Representative of the AFM asked President Frankenfeld to pass along her thanks to the Board for their service. She will be sending an exit letter. The lack of a recent newsletter was cited. She recommended that the next one contain a financial statement.
  • President Frankenfeld will be sending out a notice to the entire membership noting the election of the Board was by acclamation. The notice is necessary for credentialing purposes at the National Convention.

II. CSO

  • President Frankenfeld provided an update on the grievance process that was begun after a CSO player was denied tenure. Bringing in an arbiter will be costly and extremely slow moving. It would be preferable if the Local can work out a resolution.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

I. United Way

  • Don Hurd made the motion and Lou Lausche provided the second. It was voted unanimously by the Board to donate the same amount as last year.
