D. Old Business:
Mikey had asked the IGR’s to take back to the groups the changing contributions from a quarterly basis to monthly. Some groups increased their contributions and will contribute monthly, however some groups declined to contribute monthly as quarterly works better within their Treasury.
E. New Business:
The Redmond Alano Club would like to link their new website to the Intergroup website. Dave W made a motion to bring back to the groups since the Alano Club is an outside Entity. Cory will look at other IGR sites to review their links. The new site should be looked at the see their content. It is still under construction.
