Ted Sjolander gave the full Treasurer’s Report, if you would like a copy contact Ted. Ted also told us that the treasury is enhanced by $200 since we sold the infamous Margarita machine to Ted’s son.

Bill Walton gave a synopsis of the Delegates Meeting held at conclave. He said that 85% of all members renew online. Our club only has 10% and he asked if more members were willing to renew on line. The 2020 Conclave will be hosted by the Tampa Bay Club and will be held in Crystal River in May. Bill also said that the 2021 Conclave will be held on the west coast with no plans reported so far.

This is for the first 9 months out of which 73% or $98,000 is spent on the Marque. Dues are down from last September and that is why they are asking for renewal of your membership early this year.
