Treasurer's Report October 2018

Hi to you all from your Treasurer .

As usual, I have been very busy with North Queensland Area affairs. Travelling over the past week to visit groups in our area.

I will copy the words of one of our members who helps keep us all together,


"Thanks to Shelley we now have a way Key members can make donations online. On the website, every where we have the treasurers' information, we now have a PayPal donate button:
http://key2harmony.org/members.html

The introduction text says:

Online Donations: To make a donation to Key to Harmony with your PayPal account or any credit or debit card, click on the donate button below.

The button also appears on these pages:
http://key2harmony.org/faq.html
http://key2harmony.org/addresses.html

Donations made via the website go directly into the Stateside bank account.


The Stateside account currently stands at $340.11, it would be good to make a donation to WSO soon.

Australian account:
Bendigo Bank
BSB 633000
Acc132832924

May: opening balance $342.21
interest $ .15
Closing balance $342.36

June: opening $342.36
interest .16
Closing balance $342.52

July opening $342.52
interest .16
closing balance $342.68

August opening $342.68
interest .16
Closing balance $342.84

September opening $342.84
interest .16
closing balance $343.00

October opening $343.00
interest .15
closing balance $343.15

it is great that you can now pay by PayPal directly into the K2H account, please donate if you can as we would love to make a donation to WSO soon. Hopefully we can make a donation as well from the Australian account as well. If there are any members in the AustraPacific area, you can make an electronic transfer directly into the Bendigo bank as well. The details are in this post.

Love to you all from a very hot Far North Queensland, fans roaring full blast in my house at the moment.

Kate

Reports:
AlternateChair (Buddy)
I posted the "monthly appeal for new members to the Business Committee" to the main Key list along with links to other reports and the website.

My original thinking on this was, if everyone posts their reports to the Key weblog, instead of the Keytoharmony list, then the Alt Chair links to those reports in his monthly report, it would cut down on OT posts to the main list.

BTW, Barb K. posted her Chair Schedule to the Key blog herself this month and I think she will tell you the process is simple and easy. Joyce has been posting her minutes there for a couple of months now.

And, in case you can't tell, this is a big hint that we need to utilize the Key weblog more. :)

If you haven't begun using the blog for your reports, please contact me and I can walk you through it. It's as easy as sending an email.

Buddy

9 Webmaster (Buddy) :
The July 2018 Activity Report, now with website stats, has been posted to the Key blog:
http://www.key2harmony.org/files/archives/000035.html

The website stats are NOT a function of Gaggle. They are a function of our website's control panel.

Now that WSO has finally updated their Key to Harmony link from the old Yahoo link to the new Key2Harmony.org link, new subscriptions have increased significantly. We've had 4 new members sign up since they changed the link last week. We now have 81 members.

Business
Agenda items requested (BJ)

Answers to Questions: Donations to WSO/GSO and Expected Expenses

A1. Annual expenses should be less than $100. Currently, they are $86.04 - $50 for web hosting (due in May 2019) and $36.04 for 81 Gaggle members (due May 11, 2019). But, that amount will go up 34 cents each time we add a new member to the Gaggle list. Our bill will come annually in May. When the NetSonic Bill comes, we can shut down that account and not pay that bill (we are no longer with yahoogroups). ( Buddy ).

A2. Annual Group donations to WSO and/or Australian GSO are generally made at the end of the year . The CMA receives an Appeal letter in November from WSO. Here at Key, a donation is usually made after all group bills are paid and an amount is retained to pay one year's bills if no donations are made, .  (BJ)

A3. Question of when last donation was made and how much. Answer pending.
.


B. Answer to Question: To Access Archives On Weblog
B1. Go to Key2Harmony.org and Choose from left column: Member Information. Then, choose from middle column: Announcements and Reports. Archives will appear.

C. Request for Chairs for upcoming 3 months (Barb)

D. Minutes for July submitted for approval and posted to Weblog

E. Request to Change Secretary Job Description (Joyce) & now reads

Records the minutes of all Keybiz meetings.  Forwards the completed minutes to Keybiz at the end of each month for review/corrections (5-7 days). Posts Minutes Weblog .  Helps put together the monthly discussion agenda and keeps track of past motions, resolutions, and discussion items for future use by the BizCom when needed.


F. Transition from Arlene to Shelley as Treasurer
F1. Shelley considering options for financial institution.
F2. Tax Identification Number for non-profits needed...The TIN is assigned to the group, not the bank. It shouldn't matter what bank you use as long as you have the TIN. (Buddy)
F3. Second signatory on account needed

In service,
Joyce
