        • Miscommunication and hard with the paperwork that we have.
        • Proposed to do a review not an audit, need to find someone else to do the audit/review.  
        • A full audit is very costly, a review maybe a more achievable goal.
        • Suggested Jantha may be able; better when it is someone who has been treasurer that can understand the current systems
        • Other suggestions were fall/spring, but it is hard to get someone to do it once let alone twice.
        • Proposed for in the future that those on the exec committee that do not have power of approval for expenditures to conduct the review with treasurer on hand to explain and ask questions.
        • Jantha agreed she would do the review.  We will get her the books.
      • Payments to be presented $599 to saxophone assistance payment
      • Budget is approved.

  4. Volunteers needed
    • Band Banquet-will reach out to parents to find a committee leader
  5. Fundraising
    • Spring Fundraising Discussion-Main purpose is individual fundraising for the trip. No Dough is one of the few possibilities that can be done at this late date that is not selling things, and is quick so that money can be deposited into students accounts by the March payment.  Fund raiser must be shut off by end of February.  Have it only month of February.

  8. Directors Comments:
    • Students would like to get assistance to learn to play their instruments better
      • “Volunteers” can come into school and work with students but must be paid for by parents.
      • Would have to paid up front to have funds available to pay a honorarium to volunteers. 
      • Discussed could use online versions but would prefer community members to create ties between students and community.
      • Nathan is going to explore option and draft up something and think through problems and ideas.
