As of 31 October 2006, cash on hand is $6946.36. The conference fund has $1,736. The Scholarship/Education Fund has $6014.98. Due to discrepancies in the UN annual luncheon fund, it was agreed that one person will work with the New York chapter. Beginning next year, if a member cannot attend the luncheon after she/he has paid, then the check will be considered a PPSEAWA USA donation. We will ask Janet Nixon to manage the money. A discussion followed about raising the cost of the luncheon from $50 to $55.
