Given our current club’s assets, our ability to raise funds fairly readily, and inflation, the following motion was approved by the Board to modify the committee spending limit guidelines as follows:
The maximum spending limit allowed without Board approval is:
1) Local Specialty and Rescue committees – increase limit to $2500
2) Ways & Means committee – Grocery Certificate purchases only – increase
limit to $5000.
3) All other committees remain at $500 limit.
As long as the expense does not cause the overall:
 General fund bank balance plus grocery certificate balance to fall below $10,000.
 Rescue fund bank balance to fall below $5000.
If the club’s asset’s decrease drastically and/or our ability to raise funds is reduced, then the spending limits will be reviewed by the Board and adjusted accordingly.
