Jenny has reached out to the board about the vetting committee, James to respond to let her know we have four community members who have responded to our advertisement and will compose this years vetting committee.

Inquiry from the Community Directory to re-publish our add in the 2017 copy of the directory as is. Will look to redesign for 2018. APPROVED.

Community Grants: Want to make sure it’s a clean, clear process. No conflict of interest. The date was March 28th for expressions of interest. Need to stress the importance of economic impact for grants. This aspect of the grants needs to be weighed more heavily. Funds to get projects off the ground and they should be self-sustaining.

CPG Report: submitted by James Panabaker (see attached).

Question surrounding the Baroque Festival: can the final funds be released before the festival is completed? The festival application was for funds for costume and set design so funds will have been spent before festival. Can they do a final report and get the funds released before actual Workshop happens?  Decision was yes, once final report is submitted, funds can be released.

Motion to receive the CPG Report:                           PENNER/HUSEREAU                                       CARRIED

Financial Report: E. Penner reported. Two budgets submitted. The first: 2017 Budget and Actual is this year to date. Does show the budget for the year. The second: YE 2016 Denman WORKS!, has two SS, one that shows our actuals including Visitor Services Committee (VSC) and the other CVRD YE, does not include VSC revenue and therefore is a lesser amount.  This second document, CVRD YE, will be submitted to the CVRD. Therefore net income and amount we would return, is going to be somewhere around $3800. (see attached). James to hold on to the cheque book in Evan’s absence in April/May. Suggestion was made to increase our advertising budget for next year.
