Proposal: A proposed 2019 AIS Budget will be presented at the October 2018 meeting, which could then be presented to the groups. This would give the groups the opportunity to see how AIS monies are spent. It would also allow groups to see how important the “Food Festival” fundraiser is to AIS.
2019 Fundraiser: Will the Hobbs Group continue to host the AIS fundraiser as it has done in the past? Groups will be asked if any other group is interested in hosting. Final decision will be made at October 2018 meeting.
Yellow Pages Ad: Final decision regarding its 2019 funding will be decided at October 2018 meeting.
