The Local 1000 Executive Board passed the first balanced budget in recent history at its February meeting in Memphis!
In other actions, the board received a membership report (450 members), thanked retiring board member Dave Hawkins for his service, affirmed the website transition and updates, received the Member calling report, set forth on plans for an event in May 2011 at the Highlander Center in Tennessee, and affirmed plans for fun-and-fund-raising events this spring to support the Local 1000 Emergency Relief Fund and our work on behalf of musicians.
The Board noted the value of the regular Skype meetings over the past year to keep in contact and on top of our jobs and responsibilities.
The board is also preparing a resolution to take to the AFM Triennial Convention this June in Las Vegas (President John McCutcheon, Secretary John O’Connor and elected representative, Tret Fure will attended to represent the local.)
The date for the Fall Board Retreat was set for Nov 11th, 2010 in the New York City area.
