O-3 Past President's Report Mickey Coalwell January 31, 2019
With the signing of her contract, Aubrey Madler has been engaged as LI Coordinator for the upcoming Institute in 2020, which will again be held at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.
Judy and I have been working on the 2019 budget. It will be presented for review and approval at this meeting. In January, we were paid $14,000 in conference revenues by the Kansas Library Association. This income appears in the 2019 budget, as does the projected New Mexico conference income; we are assuming it will be paid within the calendar year. Conference revenues have been late in coming in the past two years. There will be no conference revenue in 2020 as we begin our cycle of Spring conferences in 2021 with partner state Utah.
Fundraising is imperative this year. We need to generate income for the Leadership Institute, for our grant programs, and for our various strategic initiatives — not to mention replenishing our modest reserves.
