NEW BUSINESS

Joyce requested reporting from Treasures far and wide. Done ---> Treasurer's Report May 2020 - July 2021

Oh, and Kate posted a donation receipt to the KeyBiz website for all to see here ---> Files $ Aussie-Land.

Joyce wanted to have a more detailed description and expectations for the treasury roles.
Keys biz Members mostly said more definition is not needed.
The common idea is most of us trust the people who are currently in those roles therefore no further work or time is needed on this topic.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

A. Secretary Position: Opens at end of May, 2021- need a volunteer to step up. Mickey considered the position at this time and declined for now . This continues as Unfinished Business. April 2021: no discussion. May 2021: Awaiting a volunteer. Joyce willing to stay on a month at a time until the end of the year.

B.. Concepts Study: March 2021: Facilitators Question posed: Is anyone on KeyBiz willing to facilitate Concepts Study discussion or meeting in another format ? Rose, Katy & BJ volunteered to be Facilitators. Not yet confirmed. This will continue as Unfinished Business in April. April 2021: Discussion as to how to possibly implement Concepts Study in a different way continues. Key to Harmony members were asked to participate in survey( x 3 ) .A very small percentage of our membership (8.2 percent) expressed an interest via the survey in continuing a study of the Concepts of Service under any circumstances, and only 6.2 percent were willing to join another email list to do so. Even fewer, 5.3 percent, said they would be willing to join KeyBiz to do so. Buddy then suggested that we table any further discussion of finding a method to conduct the Concepts study because the vast majority of our membership (91.8 percent) either does not want to continue the study at this time, or doesn't care whether the Concepts are discussed or not. Discussion will continue into May. May 2021: Discussion completed. This is now Finished Business per Chair.

Our active members dropped from 456 in February to 444 at the end of March in spite of the fact that we had more new members join Key last month that we had unsubcribe. There were a number of members whose email addresses were reported by Gaggle as unreachable because "Mailbox Disabled." I think all of them were members with Yahoo.com email addresses. I don't know what's going on with that Yahoo situation.

They were deleted from the Key mailing list because we will be billed next month based on the number of members we have on the list (bouncing or not). They can always rejoin later if needed.
