FSU FY17 Proposed Budget

There was discussion of the newsletter and whether or not can we get rid of it in order to save money or have it done on a volunteer basis. Comment was made that deciding to get rid of the newsletter editor would in reality mean not having a newsletter given the complications of creating one.


There was a question as to why there as only $5 proposed dues increase, rather than a $10 one. There was discussion of the proposed dues increase and the various budget possibilities discussed by the Executive Committee. Motion made to approve proposed FSU FY17 budget inclusive of $5 dues increase. Motion seconded.  Discussion ensues. Motion passes (2 opposed). FSU FY17 budget is approved.


JCC FY17 Proposed Budget

Motion made to approve of the proposed FY17 JCC budget. Motion seconded. Motion passes. JCC FY17 budget is approved.
