IJS 2021 Update – Primo Rivera and Alex Dreiling
The dates for the IJS 2021 are January 23-24, 2021. The scheduled times is 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. CST. Primo and Alex need a list from the RDs on the instructors they have lined up to attend. They would like to have at least 5 from each region. Alex said they will post these dates to the calendars. The plan is to use the Go-To-Meeting software. The plan is to focus on teaching how to teach.
Transfer of Accounting – Phil Vance and Jim McCall
Jim has gone to Bank of America and Wells Fargo about either transferring the account with Wells Fargo or starting a new account with Bank of America. Bank of America will want a tax-exempt letter from the IRS or a notarized letterhead from IMAC BOD stating their non-for-profit status. To transfer on Wells Fargo, they will still need an notarized letter from the IMAC BOD to transfer from North Carolina to Arizona.
Phil suggest that Wells Fargo is the easiest way to go. Either bank works for Jim. Doug suggests staying with Wells Fargo. Jim will check to see if they can get electronic signatures.
Website Update – Doug Pilcher
Doug has been having trouble getting a hold of Dan Carroll until today, due to family leave. There are two (2) new virtual machines setup as of today on the new IMAC server that will be hosted by Diamond Computers. One is for preproduction and one is where the hosted site will be. The tunnels are created for Dan to log in to control these virtual machines on the server. Dan is still working on putting the backbone together with Joomla.
Swag Store Closeout – Doug Pilcher
The items were posted with some Facebook pushes. The only thing left is regional license plates; all but 4 red hats are gone; and Mike still has blue/tan hats. What little is left, will be sent to the RDs to see if they can be cold at their regional contests in 2021.
Treasurer’s Report – Phil Vance
As of tonight, the General Operating account is as follows:
Checking $ 3,168.92
Phil reiterated that RDs have money left in their regional account and they did not use any of the IMAC budgeted money for the regions in 2020.
Regional Issues – All RDs
RD’s were asked to email Samantha of any regional updated they may have. Nothing was reported.
Doug thanked Mike, Phil, Samantha, Clark, Rich, and Brad for their years of service on the Board of Directors.
Meeting adjourned at 9:37 p.m. EST.
