3. FINANCE REPORT AND DISCUSSION
A. Dan: We need to allocate funds for website $900. $1,200 has already been paid and we need another $900 to put in the webmaster budget for maintenance and updates. The money can be taken out of Board Meeting money ($2,200) unspent. The Board will probably spend a maximum of $1,200 for the rest of the year on meetings, so we can take $870-$900 from that for the website/webmaster budget.

MOTION by John to transfer $900 to website budget
SECOND: Ossie
VOTE: Motion passes-unanimous

B. Dan: Would like to allocate surplus money in Committee meeting budget and pit in a contingency.

MOTION by John to transfer $7,000 into a contingency, leaving $4,200+ in Committee Meeting budget
SECOND: Jen
VOTE: Motion passes-unanimous

C. Dan: HHWNC is currently paying $350 for website (email, physical space, etc.). There have been complaints that the website doesn’t work. This is largely due to people not checking and clearing out email inboxes. We can pay $590 for more room on email.

MOTION by Jen that we pay the $590 to increase email size as well as look at competitor prices for the website maintenance for the next service period.
SECOND: Dan
VOTE: Motion passes-unanimous
