December 15, 2010
The High Plains AMA/NWA Chapter met via a conference call, at 2 pm on Wednesday, December 15th. President Mike Umscheid led the conference all, with 12 members logged into the call.
Call to order. After calling the ‘meeting’ together, President Mike Umscheid/DDC called on Secretary Tim Burke/DDC to read the minutes from the Nov 3rd meeting. Minutes were accepted as read.
Treasurer’s report. Rick Ewald/GID reported on the updated Treasurer’s report for Treasurer Corey King. The treasury started at $4791.19 as of 11/1, had deposits of $1841.62 (mainly from the 14th High Plains Conference at DDC), leaving a balance on 12/14 of $6632.81. The Jim Johnson Scholarship balance was $2725, leaving the chapter checkbook at $3907.81.Old Business. President Mike Umscheid continues to work on the Tax-exempt status for our Chapter. Our Chapter will first need to become incorporated as a non-profit organization in either the state of Kansas or Nebraska, before we can apply to the IRS for tax-exempt status. It was decided to incorporate in Kansas, and this action requires us to have a “registered agent”, which President Mike Umscheid volunteered for. Mike will continue to work with Jim Johnson on filing the required IRS Form 1023.
A beginning of this year’s Jim Johnson Scholarship committee was discussed, and volunteers came forward: Chris Foltz/GLD, Teresa Keck/LBF and Scott Bryant/GID. Another will be added from the DDC office soon.Officer nominations were solicited, and will be voted on at the first meeting in 2011.
meeting adjourned at 2:40 PM. The next
meeting will be during the first
week in February.
