ASCO Report (Lorraine Meyers)
ASCO is currently concerned with the laws and rules and regulations that are going through the state of Illinois. We have received a list of all the things that have been proposed, that the committee proposed, and we voted on everything based on whether we would approve it or not. It’s getting very complicated. The only people who are going to make out on all of these proposals are the lawyers who are creating it.

Sandra Goldberg asked if there was any update on the CD’s that are up for renewal in February and March.
We would not have any action to report on those CD’s yet.
Sandra Goldberg asked if there were plans to rollover the CD’s or to liquidate them.
We will have to see at that time, but I do not think that we are going to need to liquidate them. The latest cash flow projection that was made for the Budget and Finance Committee does not indicate that we would need to liquidate those yet.
Board Report (George Pauley)
There is no Board Report for this month.
Management Report (Tim Patricio)
For the management report there are just a couple of quick items. At the last Board meeting, the Board asked us to look into putting in some recycle bins in the lobby area that were marked for paper and newspaper. We brought a couple of catalogs and there are many to choose from, we don’t want to decide what look or appearance without discussing this with you.
George Pauley indicated that this should be sent to the Home Improvement Committee for them to make a recommendation to the Board.
