The Secretary's Report was accepted as distributed.
Bruce Bolduc reported that the cash balance for the federation is $21,554.14 as of
July 31, 2007 (not including Philatelic Show 2007). The proposed NEFSC 2008
Budget shows a Total Net Loss of $600.00 due to depreciation of the Philatelic
Federation Web Site: Jack mentioned that Mark Buttlerline has redesigned the
web site and the web site responsibility has transitioned to him from John
Philatelic Show 2007: Jeff reported many positive comments about PS2007 from
around the country! There were some negative comments relative to charges; most
were favorable comments. Wayne provided the final PS 2007 Financial Report. Due to credits from PS2006
(improper hotel charges) towards PS2007 and show charging the Net Income for the
show is $8464.31 . Future shows will not have this special hotel credit and will
include higher hotel administrative charges. If not for the special hotel
credit, the PS 2007 Net Income would have been about $5000.
A proposal was made, seconded and passed to set aside $5000 from the NEFSC balance for future replacements of the exhibit frames.
Philatelic Show 2008: Jeff mentioned that due to the hotel giving away our usual date, next year's
show will be on May 9-11 (which include the Sunday of Mother's Day). We
anticipate having no charge for admission on Sunday, May 11 (Mother's day). Jeff suggested that the theme for PS2008 could be "Anniversary of the
Model T" or Space related item (first orbiting of a satellite).
The next meeting will be held at 1:00 PM on Oct. 21, 2007 during Walpex 2007 at
Minuteman Technical High School, Route 2A Lexington, MA.
President Jack Miller adjourned the meeting at 2:10 P.M.
