Treasurer’s report – Kimberley Claassen

·         Currently missing packets from one festival and one solo/ensemble event. 

·         $5000 is currently owed to LCRMEA from participating schools. Kim will send out a list of delinquent accounts next week.

·         Procedures for reimbursement: Kim proposed moving festival registration due date to the Wednesday in December directly before Winter Break to cover costs for solo/ensemble events (so judges can be paid the day of the event, etc.) Mark Claassen moved for a vote. Motion passed

·         Note for next year’s event hosts: you must turn in completed packets at least one week before the event so that checks can be ready on the day of the event.
