Issues & Projects for January - June

  • It's been quite the time! With planned furlough time for January/February/March, it worked well that I was called out of town to care for family during this time period. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruption to all area public events. Most of my time worked in March was spent taking events OFF the calendar. I continued to work a reduced schedule until June.
  • For health and safety reasons, I've been doing most of my work from home, going into the City Building once every week or two to check mail. Jenie was kind enough to accept the checks and make sure they got deposited and shared with the bookkeeper.
  • January invoices were run the first week of the year, along with February invoices, which were given to Jenie to mail on Feb. 1st.
  • March invoices didn't go out until the last week in March. April and May were billed in a normal time frame.
  • We are out of letterhead, but since we haven't met to confirm the directior for the organization, I have been printing "letterhead" with my personal color laser printer.
  • Sold usage of 2 image to ECI in February.
  • Upon my return in March, I transfered all daily files to a flash drive that I could use at home and installed Quickbooks on my home system.
  • Kept up-to-date with news releases and cancellations.
  • In May, I went back to working a full week when it came time to switch a sponsoring member's name, logo, links. (West End Bank to 3 Rivers Credit Union).
  • Appeared on The Third Sector, via Zoom interview.
  • Less events = fewer photo oppportunities/time spent on photography, so I have been able to spend some time going through our pages to check and update outdated links, a much-needed action.
  • Add new member, ResCare, Inc.
  • Installed Dreamweaver on new computer, downloaded website files. Still need to transfer Adobe photoshop/lightroom to new computer.
  • Work on Cash Flow Statement/Projection and update board meeting documents.
