Only currently outstanding bills will pertain to FIRC costs


Discussion of FIRC

Members attending FIRC proposed the idea of having the FIRC alternate between Missouri and Illinois.

Members were more accepting of the Illinois venue knowing that GSLFIA saved so much money on venue

May not be such a bad idea to not have wi-fi available to keep attention

Keith has already discussed logistics for providing wi-fi for future

Should not be a problem for future events
