BOARD MEETING MINUTES

June 29, 2017

Board Members Present: Terry Whittington Charlie Hafer, Marty Bergman, Melanie Whittington and Linda Jackson, Trudy Atkins, Jerry Snyder and Mark Lichtenberger. Guest: Joann Snyder

Call to Order: The Board met over dinner at Joseph's Restaurant beginning at 6:45 pm.

Terry and the Board thanked Charlie for his service to Carolina Heartland and for all his help with the music, newsletter and treasurer responsibilities. His talents will truly be missed.

Treasurer's Report: Charlie presented the highlights of his report sent earlier in an email. See below for full analysis of budget highlights from email:

1. Almost all ($621) of our funds increase since January 1 ($688) was due to Black Tie.

2. Our funds increase since June 30, 2016 ($156) include $621 from Black Tie and around $300 from 2016 Showcase

3. The "profit" from Showcase and Black Tie covered our donation to 2016 CFC

4. Although it does not show in the summary, the monthly dance attendance (and thus revenue) in the past few months have been a financial drain. Our end of month balances has dropped from $3450 on April 30 to $3156 on June 30. That does include the recent payment of $108 to Linda for BT decorations and $100 to Shrine Club for 2017 showcase.

There is still an outstanding bill (not received form UUCG) for the Wellness center rental in spring for $115.

Membership: currently 69 (47 social dancers)

Future Events:

  • July dance – Jordan Jewell pre dance lesson
  • Workshops – August (Jordan Jewell)
