We paid the insurance and sent the 1099s out.

The Nominating Committee is Amy, Matt and Kim. They will present the slate at the March meeting. Anyone who wants to be considered should let Amy Freeman know by February 10th.
Treasurer report - Bitzy Murray
The report will be posted to the website. We have the Yankee Candle money, but the bill hasn’t come yet.
We need parent volunteers to ride buses with Sinfonia and Symphony and to help transport instruments for State Contest. We will need to feed the kids. There is not a ton of percussion compared to previous years.
Solo & Ensemble was amazing this year. There were 47 events. The vast majority were solos. Both judges and other people wondered how we get 41 soloists. We’re moving in the right direction. A Sinfonia group got a Superior rating for the first time.
State Contest is going to be great.
