Treasury Report
By Laurie Thompson 

If you have had a change in Regional Representative or Regional Treasurer, the signature card MUST be updated to remove the previous officer(s) and add the new one(s). All checking accounts must have the Regional Representative, Regional Treasurer, Executive Director and State Treasurer listed as signers.

Please remember as you are planning your region events for the year, make sure you add the region designated event into your planning process. The number one thing that regions seem to forget when it comes to your ONE region designated event is that your region's sustaining MRF membership falls into this category ... you can designate funds from ONE event to multiple places but it must be from ONE event only. If your region does not hold an event during the year, the only option to raise funds for the MRF membership would be to pass the hat -- the sustaining membership fee should not come out of your general funds.

You can certainly contact me to discuss if you need further clarification BUT we will be covering this topic as well as all the other fun filled treasury topics at Officer's Training in February. I would love to see all the regional treasurers attend.. please do your best to clear the weekend. For those of you who have never attended, it is a great weekend -- VERY informative but a lot of fun as well!

The Sweetheart cash raffle is in full swing! I would love to see tickets being sold in ALL regions -- please contact me if you would like tickets to sign out, they can be mailed out to you or delivered at the December BOD meeting. The winners will be drawn at the Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids on February 11, 2018 before the BOD meeting so I will need all sold and unsold tickets returned by February 1, 2018. Tickets are 2/$5 and the prizes are: 1st $1,000, 2nd $500, and 3rd $250. Make sure to write your name on the back of the tickets you sell, if you happen to sell the 1st place ticket you will win $100! Sellers of the 2nd and 3rd place will receive a one year extension on their ABATE of WI membership.

We have started taking information/payment for the special advertising section "ABATE Supporters". If you or someone you know would like to advertise here, the cost is $100 and information with payment must be received with the state office by December 31. Establishments will receive a minimum of 8 months advertising throughout 2018.

As always, I can be reached 262-649-3591 or for more information!

I hope that you will be spending the holidays with family and friends, cherish the time you have with them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
