Lead Director Dave Covill gives the following summary of the meeting:
We welcomed Carol Radford (Legacy Gifts) and Jim Hawkins (Donations) as new directors. We discussed old, current and new projects, and noted that we are on track to achieve a short term goal of 25 of 50 states with a project by the end of 2013. In the past year we have achieved the ability for Highpointers to donate via PayPal or VISA. We have exceeded $5,000 in Silent Auctions, and held our 3rd annual Live Auction of a Convention package for next year, again bringing in a 4-digit amount. We are working hard on a Legacy Program, wherein Highpointers can notify us that they have named the Foundation in their Will as a recipient should they someday pass away. New projects include AR, TX, OK, CA, SD, VA, TX, NE, NV. We may possibly approach the $100,000 mark in Donations, and from our 100th distinct Donor, by the end of 2013. Its exciting, and we’re proud to be playing a part of the Highpointing family giving back a bit to the places we love so much.
