Treasurer’s report: Cullen Hallmark was unable to attend. Bonnie reported for Cullen the following: New bank account will be held by NM Bank & Trust. Cullen is finalizing the paperwork. Signatories will be the President and Treasurer on the account. The Money Market current balance is $20,992.22 and the regular checking account balance is $20,973.96. There are some outstanding organizational cost expenses but they have not yet been submitted for reimbursement. New Business: Funding Request - checks have not yet been cut for the SNaPP grant request. This will be for $2000.
Elections - Due to the unusual nature of this year with COVID, it is being determined if the present executive board positions can be maintained. Once confirmed, Kathy will put together a Survey Monkey ballot for voting which will also solicit for at-large positions to bring in other members interested in serving with the Friends of SFMGA.
Marketing - Future of Friend of SFMGA: Wendy shared that she sent out an email to the SF Reporter about the two separate organizations. Kathy continues to explain the difference in responding to Friends of SFMGA emails. More discussion is needed as to fund raising to support current financial needs of SFEMG. Pam suggested that we and the SFEMG fully understand what happens to monies (particularly donations) that come into SFEMG and how NMSU will handle them.
Old Business: Mission statement still needs to be finalized. Continued discussion needs to take place to consider other organizational collaborations and the direction the Friends of SFMGA should take.
Next Meeting: TBD but sometime mid-December
