Treasurer's Report/Finance Division
In response to a question from the Treasurer regarding registration, the reconciliation of the club's registration accounts were discussed. Irene Millman responded that one club still owed a substantial amount and was dealing directly with Thirl on their balance. Three other clubs still had substantial but significantly less than the other account with the outstanding balance and were cleaning them up.

The last club with missing registrations had just forwarded them and their batch failed to process as the incorrect file format was submitted. Further discussion occurred regarding the procedures for next year and why these batches seemed to fail and what was going on. It was explained that most of those failed batches occurred when the first batch of the registration year occurred and that with the exception of one club all the batches since the first of the calendar year. Irene outlined the registration procedure guidelines for next registration year and agreed to send a copy to the board for their comments prior to sending to the clubs in August.
