The Board discussed all issues from the agenda:

Welcome and introduction of 2007-2008 officers given by newly elected president Wil Jones.

Treasurer's Report was given by D.Felder, the current balance is $$$, all financial information will be sent to her home address. At present, the Panthers checks are going to Wil Jones' home address, however this will be changed to D. Felders address at a later date. The report was properly motioned by T.Wyatt, and seconded by F.Mingo and accepted by the body.

Dues: Annual chapter dues of $25 are now due, it was suggested that a hardcopy letter be sent out to all members via John Harvey and a follow-up email be sent as well, no later than September 1, 2007. The emailed version will include phone numbers of those persons who need a phone call due to not having Internet access or are physically incapable of using the computer. The goal of this letter is to generate dues awareness and encourage members to pay their dues. A motion was made by G.Nobel to raise chapter dues from $25 to $30, this motion was seconded by T.Wyatt, and accepted by the body and $5 of the $30 will go towards a Sunshine Fund which would be used in case of illness, death, financial issues, etc for chapter members and alumni.

Scholarship Fund: To be established by the end of 2008, it will be apart of the working budget. The financial committee will get together and work on a working budget for the 2007/2008 year. A suggested minimum of $500 was made as the amount to be given to a deserving student based on the board's criteria.

This scholarship fund will be separate from the yearly donation made during graduation ceremonies.
