SFSRBA Board of Directors Meeting

A meeting of the Board was called for Tuesday, February 9.  Due to conflicts and sickness a quorum of members was not present.  Those who attended discussed a variety of items concerning the building.   Minutes from these discussions will be available when completed by Ray Carpenter, our secretary.  We talked about the need to define the classification of users and the rates charged to each (retail, not for profit, schools, and members).  We reviewed a request for a long term use of the building by a dance group and comments were made about how this was not a good thing for the Temple.  We discussed project currently going on in the Temple (Kitchen, Wardrobe security, boiler status, need for cleaning).  We had a Treasurers report.  It was indicated that the new Treasurer for the LOP, Tom Dillon, was suggesting accounting changes that will be reflected in future reports.  Concerns about meeting an income amount similar to last year was discussed.  We talked about meeting dates and it was requested that Ray send out a survey of the Board members to determine what date would be best for our next meeting.
