The minutes were read from the previous meeting by the secretary. The minutes were approved with a motion from Jeff and second by Brad and a unanimous vote by the board.
Due to the treasurer being absent there was not a treasurer’s report. Jeff reported that as of January 26 we had a bank balance of $3144.97 with no outstanding transactions. The Big Blonde and Beautiful show raised $300 on January 25. We had a $30 donation from Truly St. James for the ICP Ball. The treasurer report was tabled until the next meeting with a motion by Matthew and second by Brad and a unanimous vote from the board.
The President’s repost was given by Michelle. She reported that the 501c3 status paperwork had been filled with the IRS. We are just waiting to hear from the lawyer that they accepted it.
The Vice President’s report was given by Brad. He passed out a copy of the new Social Media Policy. There was some discussion among the board about them. In the guidelines, # 2 states that If you create an account or alias, you must not in any way use the name “SICII” or “Sovereign Imperial Court of Indiana” in your account name or alias without the permission of the Membership Coordinator. It has been changed to the permission of the President of the board. And # 3 states If you behave or communicate in a way detrimental to SICII while using social media it is always possible that the Membership Coordinator, a board member, the current Emperor/Empress, or a past Monarch in the College of Monarchs may wish to address the matter with you. It has been changed to that it can be reported to any of these people but needs to be handled by the president. The Social Media Policy and Confidentiality Policy were approved with a motion from Jeff and second by Matthew and a unanimous vote from the board.
