Grant Report / Caitlin

I sent out a few of the changes I’ve made so far on the forms and our website.  A few of you had great suggestions!  I will continue to edit and send out changes to you all.  

We have 2 Midwinter requests so far.  Both do not serve on committees.  There is very limited programming at MW, and I wonder about the cost to attend vs the learning benefit.  Many new members don’t realize there is no programming at MW, and sign up before the full schedule is released.  Would it be more beneficial to encourage those members to attend AkLA?  Is there any recommendation from the Board on this matter?
