Treasurer’s Report:  


In Richard’s absence, Jo reported apx. $900 in the treasury after paying the semi-annual $67 fee to maintain the CoDA P.O. Box. [Actual Bank Balance: $958.24, corrected with the submission of these Minutes.]  Richard and Jo have reinstated the Checking Account at Citibank, upon Citibank’s recovery of former account documents, and Jo being added to the account as second signatory (Richard being the first signatory).  Due to the account maintaining less than a $5,000 monthly average balance, Citibank charges the standard monthly fee of $15 for a business account.  


Discussion followed, during which Liz said that Intergroup, as a nonprofit, should not be paying any fee at all. She is to follow up with IRS to secure 501(c)3 nonprofit status for Intergroup.  Trish says IRS will not charge to set up a non-profit. Ensure that a copy of Citibank papers are with treasurer.
