Board Retreat: Sydney's Airfare

Postby Tiffany Lazic » Tue Jun 09, 2015 11:45 am

Hi, Sisters

Topic for discussion and vote....most of us on the Board will be able to keep costs low to travel to Margo's house. Sydney is the only one who has to unfortunately gulp down airfare which doesn't feel ok.

Sydney and I have already chatted about her flying to Toronto, enjoying a lovely ride to Kitchener with my husband (who works beside the airport) and then driving down to Erie with the Ontario Sisters. But a quick check into flight costs Saskatoon to Toronto puts it at around $500.

Are there SOA funds to be able to reimburse a good portion of this cost for Sydney?

Blessed bee ~ Tiffany

I agree that we need to help out with this expense; this is an important weekend for us, strategic planning-wise and important for our organization's health. Can we examine the budget to see where this might be pulled from?
blessings,
Margo

I believe a good place to pull needed Retreat Funds for both Board and Nine retreats is the Pilgrimage profits. Those profits are not earmarked (as far as I know, please correct me if someone knows otherwise) and we should have enough to cover the Nine request of $3000 and whatever our Board is in need of (expecting it to be lower than $3000).

Let's put this up for a vote at the June meeting.

Hello!
Just checking into the status of this. I think I should get my flights booked soon. I will touch base with Tiffany to firm up flight plans.

cheers,
Syd

Hi Syd,

We have approved the cost of both yours and Maddie's flights. Can I help you book them? Can we have a phone call on this?

XOXO
