Treasurer's report

Bill presented the treasurer's report, including the proposed budget for 2013.
Bill also noted that we are searching for an auditor to review the chapter's finances, etc.
The treasurer's report was accepted as presented with proposed budget for consideration 
(adjustment and action) at next meeting.
Bob said he put in a request and is waiting for a copy of our bylaws.


Juliette presented the draft of the February IMPrint newsletter. 
She suggested that instead of monthly the newsletter should be published every other month. 
Bob suggested we continue to publish monthly (11 issues for 2013), to be published preferably 
by the first of the month. It was agreed upon that the newsletter would be issued monthly.
Bill said there has been a slight increase in the number of members wishing to receive the 
newsletter electronically. With the cost of postage having been increased again, the goal is 
to continue to lobby among the membership for electronic newsletters.
Bob will check with Keith Armonaitis about ordering magnets for members who opt to receive 
Imprint electronically.
