RE:                         General Membership Meeting Summary Report


                              August 16th, 2017


The following notes represent my personal summary of the August General Membership Meeting and ARE NOT OFFICIAL MINUTES.  They are for the express purpose of keeping the members informed in a timely fashion. Since minutes must be approved at a subsequent General Membership Meeting, any updates which would require the use of the actual minutes would result in updates being one-month old.


The following was approved at the August meeting:

  • Minutes of the July meeting
  • The financial statement ending July 31st and the disbursements of $109,622.54.  Our receipts were in excess of our disbursements by $2,621.83.   This resulted in our General Account being positive by $141,708.47 (Toronto Dominion).
  • No motions this month.
