APPROVAL OF MINUTES
The minutes of the January 16, 2015 Board meeting were approved.

FINANCIAL REPORT
The financial reports were reviewed.

BUSINESS: 

• New Membership Applications - Adam Shepherd - co-sponsors Harold Crabill/Bowen Depke (approved by email) 

• Resignations - None received. 

• Leaves of Absence - None received. 

• International Service Committee - Global grant request submitted is being delayed by R.I. and our International     Service Committee is getting frustrated with the process: 

Lack of communication on RI’s part, lack of assistance, they want proof that the water filters installed in the Dominican Repulic are effective - we have no way to measure the effects of the filters by diminishing diseases, etc. - it’s an impediment in 

the grant process - who can help us with this process? President Kris Rosado will contact District Governor, PRID Michael McGovern and District Foundation Chair, Peter Johnson for guidance. 

• Rule of 85 requests accepted and approved for - Bill Blount 
                                                                         Jack Carr
