And now, the national council 'top ten'

Lots of information for the AGO membership was discussed at national council meeting in Atlanta. To keep you up-to-date, here's my 'top ten' list:

10) We have a challenge to increase membership by 5% -- how can YOU help increase membership in your chapter?
9) Chapter Leadership -- don't forget to keep your IRS paperwork up-to-date. Each chapter must submit those pesky IRS forms to retain non-profit status. Please stay up to date!
8) The annual fund -- contribute as an individual; check to ensure that your chapter contributes.
7) Oh, did I mention that the hotel where we met was across the street from the Fox Theatre? Now, that is cool!
6) The guild is completing the search for a new I.T. director. The goal is to identify a candidate by October 31 and have someone in place by January 1. Hopefully, changes ahead!
5) A stop at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer to visit with our former Regional Councillor, Sarah Hawbecker. Always great to see you Sarah!
4) Get inspired by our new chaplain Dr. Don Saliers. Look for his columns soon.
3) Be on the watch-out for January Jubilees -- a new initiative for musicians in part-time employment.
2) The vote for changes in National By-laws will occur in November. For complete information: http://www.agohq.org/national/reorganize.html
1) Don't forget to put this summer's Region IV Convention in Columbia (July 3-6, 2013) on your calendar. Registration is now available at: http://www.regional2013.org/registration.html
