President April Massey thanked Lisa for doing such a great job on the Golf Tournament! April stated that since we had such wonderful results from the Golf Tournament fundraiser, that we now had a decision to make. Our scholarship budget for the year is $5000 and the scholarship committee would like to go over the budget by $5000 to increase it to $10,000. IWSA bylaws require a general assembly membership vote for anything over $250 over the budget. Lisa Bumpass made a motion to increase the scholarship budget to $10,000. There was a 2nd motion from the floor and no discussion was made so therefore the increase to $10,000 was approved.
Pat Villarreal stated any changes to standing rules must be presented to the General Assembly and she was proposing changes to standing rule #6 to increase active and active associate’s dues to $55. She stated that an increase of FIWT Membership Association dues have steadily increased and increasing our Membership Dues will enable us to keep up. A motion was made to approve the change and it was also 2nd by a member on the floor to approve the increase effective 6-1-2018.
