Treasures Report – Kimberly Claassen
Financial report

  • HS Instrumental Honor Groups, MS Choir Festival, and HS Instrumental S/E went over budget; therefore host stipends did not go out or were reduced. We need to restructure fees for festivals and ensembles.

  • Checks received are missing information (no school, no department, etc.) which make to difficult to apply to correct event and school. PO’s would be a great help. Philip Denton will ask questions of Vancouver SD to see what can be done.

  • Still $4000 missing in invoices.

 

New Business- LCRMEA
Next year’s meeting dates
- There is a need to find dates that will allow more people to be present. Mark suggested consistent dates. After discussion, the final decision was the first Wednesday of the traditional three months: October, January, and May.

 

Change of MS Solo ensemble date
- Current date clashes with NWACDA each year. Proposed new month is May, preferably towards the beginning to not to clash with marching season.

 

Solo Ensemble Fees change

  • Mark presented a research and suggestions drawn up by Joel Karn for new S/E fees. Compared to several other WA regions, we are currently at the low end for paying adjudicators, hosts, and managers. Our fees for students are also at the low end. Joel suggested:

    • Adjudicators be paid $300

    • Host be paid $100 plus $.30 per entry

    • Contest manager be paid $300

    • Fees for students would be @12.50 for solo, $25 for small ensemble, and $5 per person for large ensembles

 

  • Motion carried to adjust the Adjudicator’s fee. Host and contest manager fee is still undecided.

  • Sam Ormson suggested a “per person” fee for students regardless of group size. $12.50 was suggested. Motion carried.

 

October In-service – the following are in charge of finding presenters:
