July 11, 2017 - Local 9 Membership Meeting
Motion made that going forward, all future requests received from local 9 standing committees should
include plans to use their committee funds to pay for milaege and daily expenses, before requesting
furthur support from the local. If a committee does not have sufficient funds to cover the entire milaege and daily
expense cost at the time of their request, then the local may cover the remaining portion of their request.
The board reccomended that this request
be granted was concurred in, and the motion
was approved at the July 11, 2017, membership meeting.
