Here is the IRS 990 tax return for 2021.  Please review this.  I am seeking a motion to approve the 990 return and authorization for me (Treasurer) to sign and file it on behald of FNPS.

Suggested motion:  "I move to approve the 2021 IRS 990 tax return as presented, and authorize the FNPS Treasurer to sign and file the return on behalf of FNPS"

Hi Board,

Lots of numbers and financial reports this month.  Please see attachments for:

1.  Statement of Financial Position as of June 12, 2022
2.  Budget vs. Actual report for operating fund through June 12, 2022 (income and expenses, compared to budget projections)
3.  My Treasurer's report, with summary data, notes and observations

Please note that I've placed financial summaries about Conference in the Report.  These numbers are as close to final as of June 11.  I've also included a table of year to year comparisons for conference income and expenses. 

IF YOU WANT DATA about the 2022 CONFERENCE financials, attendance and sponsorship, please read PART 2 of my Treasurer report. 

Susan

Per multiple-times expressed desire, I went through the handbook and changed policy links that went to a general policy page to links to specific policies to make it easier to use.

I also saw some very obvious errors (for example FNPS can and does give multiple Green Palmetto awards annually, whereas the handbook said one only for each of multiple categories).

I also found and fixed broken links.

As a generality, I think this did not need to be done by the ED.  Almost all content in it is created by volunteers (Board members), and using the ED as a secretary does not make a whole lot of sense.  A volunteer was doing it pre-Juliet and I suggest that we return this simple task to a volunteer.   The handbook is a Get-Simple website, so we have multiple volunteers who know how to edit them, and just like the previous volunteer, we can also teach someone. 

I am sure there are more issues, but these are a good start.  Please review:  https://handbook.fnps.org

I hereby move that the Board approved the changes to the FNPS handbook as indicated by strike-outs and yellow highlighting.

Since this is not creating new policy, just fixing minor errors and inserting updated or better links, I think this could appropriately be included in the Consent Agenda.

See attached.  Also see requested handbook update approval posted separately (that is separate because it needs a vote)
