Business:

  • All auction business is going smoothly! Auction ends Saturday at 10 PM

  • Bank of America account has been closed - Thanks Dave!
  • Sheila will take care of the IRS Form 990 this year, due May 15, 2012
  • Sheila will fulfill the second invoice received from Burning Moth, Inc. for our recent plugin development.
  • Emily will contact another property owner at our Florida rescue site to try and obtain permission. Mark was unable to get much feedback from the owner so perhaps another voice on the matter from NASC would be persuasive.
