Meeting Agenda & Minutes

Below please find links to the agenda for the March EARS meeting as well as the minutes from the February meeting for your approval.

Also included is the updated EARS Directory. Please update any incorrect information, especially if you notice your friend's incorrect email address, as they won't be getting this email. Send any updates to me and I'll get the list corrected.

I'm sorry I won't be able to make the eyeball meeting this month, it's March, and college basketball has a pretty strong gravity.

There isn't a treasurer's report this month, per se other than to say Dwight and I are still getting the club's account transitioned to Emporia - right now Dwight is getting the club a taxpayer ID number from the IRS so we can open an account that isn't tethered to a single person, but belongs to the club. I did receive $145 in club dues and donations from last month - I have my accounting statement linked below.

Send and email anytime you have a question - I'm happy to help any way that I can!
