PROPOSED BUDGET: Presented by Treasurer, Linnea Laurila.
After discussion, it was agreed to reduce the Gallery Budget for the Holiday Show to $200.00.
It was decided that the Hullabaloo budget will be reduced by $1000 by eliminating two most expensive acts.
We need to think of options to help make more revenue for SAG.
Anne Ownes motioned to ‘Provisionally approve the Budget as adjusted’, 2nd by Angela Arterburn. Motion carried. Adjusted budget attached.
Linnea also reported the SAG taxes are at Sangre Solutions now.
Linnea has been working with SAG member Paul Biron on the new website for SAG and its members.
Paul was present to give a presentation. The presentation took up the rest of the meeting time and the remainder of the Agenda will be discussed at the next board meeting on February 7th at 5:00pm.
Paul gave a lenghtly demonstration and covered the following:
*Administration – We will be able to go in and make changes.
* Look and Feel – We have a choice as to the color, look and design. He went through several concepts, and we voted on a concept. We chose a Dark background with white lettering. He can change the theme. He showed how easy it was, and the theme would stay consistent throughout the site.
He is using Word Press
Members will have: ~Their own web page as a plus for being a SAG member
~Will be able to make changes to their own page, which includes photos (limit number), Artists statement. Changes will go through the Administrator for approval, then posted once approved.
~Number of photos that members can display will be decided later.
~ Web page will show our Events
~ Web page will highlight past Events, showcasing with some photos and the winners of the show will be posted as well.
~ Other basics, such as Mission Statement, About SAG, contact info, etc will also be available.
NEXT STEP – Part 2.

Membership page, how many images? Possible 6 to 8. Need to decide.
Paul has graciously donated his time to developing the web page. He has done web pages for over 17 years. He is open to changes, concept and is working with us. THANK YOU PAUL!
One of the exciting things, members getting their own ‘mini web page’.
