Posting of information to Minnstf Web Page
Sharon will cause by-laws to be posted, and check re: board

(The wording is: "Voting eligibility consists of attending 7
previously eligible meetings during the year, of which at least 3 must

Taxes and accountant
Larry contacted Judy. We filed a 2000 extension. We never filed 1999
taxes. Dean & Scott both recall Geri & Linda contacting Judy asking
"Have we given you complete data?"
Do we want to find a new accountant? We want to at least investigate
it. Dean recalls getting Judy on a recommendation from Lynn Litterer.
Scott to contact Susan Levy Haskell - do her non-profit contacts have
any recommendations for an accountant?
Larry e-mailed DD-B & Peer re: missing data that Judy needs.
Parties and expenses
Long discussion of party subsidization. Up to 2000 for MilPhil, 200
for standard - Convergence, Diversicon, Asst other cons. Entertain
bids / whatever for other big Minn-StF events on a per quarter
basis. Events like the New Year's Eve Party or the Pool Party.
Supporting Rick & Fallcon: spoilage concern, general
disorganization. Make list of concerns before official
sponsor. Additional concern is more help in advance.
Sharon will follow up with Rick.
Corwin minutes? We don't know. Martin to contact Corwin.
Next board meeting moved to 15 June.
