UCF Women’s Club Board of Director’s Meeting June 14, 2013 Panera on University 1. Welcome-Nancy Marshall. Members present were Nancy, Dell Shadgett, Sarah Magann, Mary Meeker, and Debbie Carauana. Debbie Manual, Bette Boston, Beth Barnes, Norma Vernor, and Maggie LeClaire were unable to attend. The meeting was originally scheduled for June 7, but was postponed because of inclement weather. 2. Minutes for May 16 minutes. Mary Meeker in Norma’s absence. Tabled for corrections to be made by next meeting. 3. Treasurer’s Report: Debbie Caruana. Business Checking current balance— $4671.87 and Share Savings $8539.81. Membership renewals up to 23, a little behind last year’s renewal status. Our fiscal year is July 1-June 30, so a budget will be presented at next month’s meeting for discussion and approval. We are on track for a 1099 which will indeed indicate that our income is above the amount that a group like ours should have without being tax exempt. This is the reason for our filing for that status. 4. Sunshine report: Dell reported Teri Notestine death last night, 6 months after leukemia diagnosis. Celebration of life will occur in about a month. 5. Interest Groups. Mary Meeker. Interest Group chairs will meet September 5 at Mary’s home to organize for the year. The meeting will incorporate the use of the website for posting events, finding member information, and the like. 6. Scholarships and fund raising: Committee ( Sarah, Mary, Dell and Maggie) for selection of scholarship recipients has met and recommendations have been made to financial aid office. 7. Old Business a. Web site: Sarah Magann. Sarah met with Maggie and Jonathon, who is the web master for the College of Arts and Sciences. We will soon have a new user-friendly “canned” system with a membership list that is only 2 pages with no extraneous information. Further information is needed to complete the transition, and that is being sought from the members that helped set up the first website. The Board budgeted an amount of $500 for this project and has been paid (Debbie, is this correct?). b. Club incorporation status. Debbie Caruana. Debbie has sent email to all board members and interest group chairs requesting copies of agendas, activities, etc. for the 2112 -13 fiscal year. Information is coming in. She needs a copy of the fall newsletter, which Mary will get to her. She also needs good descriptions of interest groups in general and of specific ones with their purpose and activities for the past year only. Sarah and Mary will work on descriptions of interest groups. c. Fall Luncheon, September 10. Nancy Marshall. Fairwinds Alumni Center has been booked for that date for a luncheon 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Nancy will meet with Aramark soon to detail menu and asked for suggestions. Group agreed that salad is best idea perhaps with Asian flair. The theme agreed upon is “Science is sexy “ with a speaker from UCF College of Sciences. Maggie is working on securing a speaker. d. Newsletter. Information has been sent to Jerrianne Sullivan, but she is unable to do the spring issue. Beth is to ask Margie Sloan if she would take that on. It is a paid position. Nancy will ask Maggie to get info from Jerrianne so that this can proceed. Statements from Beth as outgoing president and Nancy as incoming president will be needed as well as a picture of Nancy. 8.
