Issues & Projects for June - August

  • For health and safety reasons, I have continued doing most of my work from home, going into the City Building once every week or two to check mail and deposit checks via the Library.
  • We are out of letterhead, but since we haven't met to confirm the direction for the organization, I have been printing "letterhead" with my personal color laser printer.
  • Set up Adobe and got the website files set up on Dreamweaver on the new computer.
  • Timely notified us that the annual fee for the calendar would be $580, instead of the $450 we had budgeted. After much back and forth, I got them to reduce it by $30 to $550.
  • We have a new sponsoring member, Well Care Community, Inc.
  • Kept up-to-date with invoices, news releases and cancellations.
  • Work on Cash Flow Statement/Projection and update board meeting documents.
  • Took furloughed time - one week in July and one in August. Due to mis-communiciation, both furloughed weeks will be taken from paycheck in August.
