VALA Budget 2012-2013 – The Treasurer provided me with the year-end expense and revenue numbers. These numbers were used to put together the Recommended Budget for approval. The recommended budge is one of your meeting attachments.
Vala Committees – One of your meeting attachments is the 2012-2013 standing committee list along with a brief committee description. The goal is to blend new or reelected delegates who are willing to serve with an experienced committee base and chair. I will be recommending that the Vice President be the Finance Committee Chair as part of preparing to be the future candidate for president.
County Delegates – In response to membership input the Basic Roles “State of the Organization” message for the annual meeting I will further emphasize the service responsibilities for the delegates.
Bi-Laws – Carol Hammond and I have finished the Bi-Law changes that were discussed at the July Meeting. They will need to be approved for adoption at the annual meeting. The Bi-Laws are one of your meeting attachments.
Financial Audit – Penny Allyn is working with Louise to complete the annual financial audit. I am not certain her written report and recommendations will be ready for the September 5th meeting.
VALA Depreciation Class – October 9th class registration forms have been distributed via e-mail (Forms are also on the website under Education Opportunities tab) and checks are beginning to arrive.
