|Monica:||How did the board meeting go on Thursday?|
|Blaine:||I had an emergency at home, so I wasn’t there, but I went through the meeting recording last night.|
|Monica:||Oh, I didn’t know the recording was ready.|
|Blaine:||It’s still in the raw version. There was a good ten minutes of fuss before Marianne called the meeting to order.|
|Monica:||That’s right, but the good thing is you can now skip through it in the recording.|
|Blaine:||Yes, I skipped through a roll-call and other admin questions until the members actually got down to business.|
|Monica:||So, what did they put on the table for the night?|
|Blaine:||Well, there were only a few financial aspects to discuss, so Kevin had the floor for the most of the evening.|
|Monica:||I see. Was there anything else I missed? I think the board planned to make a motion for the new Treasurer to be appointed.|
|Blaine:||Uh, let me think. Oh, yes, they did. Jonathan was appointed for the next fiscal year.|
|Monica:||Ok, thank you, Blaine for filling me in. I still think I am going to review the recording to get back on track with the budget.|
|Blaine:||No problem, Monica. I’ll see you later.|
