Review of Proposed 2011 Budget:
Rob Tidrow and Jane Holman outlined the layout of the budget and Jane Holman explained the balances. She pointed out that there would be several items temporarily removed from the budget including all marketing for Waynet. She is optimistic that we will encourage new memberships and recoup many of our current members. If more moneys are acquired through additional memberships, we can amend the budget at a Board Meeting and make budget exceptions as needed. Jane discussed the purchase of new software to work on the website development. She purchased DreamWeaver.

Fee Waiver Applications:

A fee waiver application was presented to the Board for discussion. Easter Seals balance sheet was reviewed. Rob Tidrow asked for a motion to accept the proposed fee waiver for Easter Seals. Tim Love so moved. Dudley Fetzer seconded. The motion was unanimously approved.

Not-for-Profit Membership Procedural Change
Jane requested that a procedural change be made to use Guide Star (online tool) to research not-for-profit potential members for 501c3 status. This would be used as confirmation of their status and only a membership application would need to be filled out for the not-for-profit membership level.

Discussion ensued. Richard Peterson made a motion to accept that Jane use Guide Star as an acceptable means to obtain confirmation of 501(c)(3) status. Dudley Fetzer seconded. The motion was unanimously approved.

Bill Pendley started a discussion regarding the Fee-waiver membership applications. After a Board discussion, Bill Pendley made a motion to require a Balance Sheet with the Fee-Waver application in addition – we should request that the not-for-profits would also attach a copy of their operating budget or income statement. The application could still be processed if only the Balance Sheet accompanied the application, at the board's discretion. Gary seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved.
