Finance committee report
Durchslag and Bier, among others, pointed out errors in the budget-to-actual spreadsheets. These will probably prevent a budget-to-actual statemen from being presented at the annual meeting. There was extended discussion of how to correct such repeated errors. Scudder noted that for two years now, the budgeted pledge drive goals have been exceeded. She pointed out the overage in staff pay, saying it was due primarily to the many transitions during the year.
Questions arose as to why this item is again on the agenda when there has been no plan or budget presented. Click said equipment for the link envisioned by Technical Director Simon Fresh does not exist. Scudder moved to table until such time as a budget is submitted. Doyka seconded. Passed unanimously.
Several expressed frustration with the lack of progress on this task. Bier moved to authorize proceeding with installation, utilizing the $7,000 designated for the task in April. Scudder seconded. Passed unanimously. Click will pursue.
Replacement of President Daniel P. Murphy
Scudder moved making Durchslag interim president until officers are selected in April. Bier seconded. Passed unanimously. Possible candidates were discussed for the vacant programmer representative seat. Without a willing candidate at the moment, it will remain vacant.
Durchslag reminded all of the quarterly programmers‚Äô meeting on Jan. 14.
