Joanna Pierson reported that the Association will take out a loan later and for less money than last year. The one concern is the SIS income projection. The problem is not the sales, but rather the high income projection in the first year of the publication. This should suggest lessons for future years budgeting. Membership is slightly low. There was discussion of the need for leaders to contact non-renewed members. We are continuing to better our financial picture.
