Discussion among Board Members concerning proposed regional club newsletter. Information from the regional club VP indicated cost would be between $1.40 minimum per quarter for each club member to $1.70. This would cost our chapter approximately $1,000. a year. The regional newsletter would be mailed with the Roundel. After discussion, it was decided to send a letter to the club regional VP advising him that our small chapter’s budget could not support this large of an expense.
