TREASURER/FINANCE & AUDIT: Karen gave a brief history on the audits performed in the past and added that an audit for 2001 and 2002 would be done together. She is still looking for auditors and has sent out some letters.


SECURITY: Pete Walker reported that he has twenty-two people interested in helping with the Neighborhood Watch but would like to get someone from the three sections to be in charge.


PUBLICATIONS: Frank called attention to his written report. Frank stated that the telephone directory needed to be updated. He informed the Board that the committee decided to increase the advertising in order to cover the costs of production. They want to establish a separate book that would include the covenants, bylaws, etc. and call it a governance handbook. Ralph discussed his previous booklet about friends versus friends and suggested that the committee might want to incorporate information from it into their publication.


Karen suggested that in addition to any Milestones articles that appear in the newsletter, whenever there are enough new residents the newsletter could include a page listing names, address, phone numbers, email.  Residents could pull out the page and place it in the telephone directory, so that they have up to date information during the intervals between the printing of new directories. It was felt that this could be done every three to four months.


The meeting was adjourned at 9:12 PM.
