The September Board meeting minutes were approved via email voting.

A. Secretary 
1. Darlene Doty reported that the September minutes will be put on the website next week.

B. Treasurer
1. Matt presented the budget reconciliation detail dated September 30, 2013 and also the complete detailed budget. 
2. October 3rd, 2013 Balance Sheet – Total of all current assets total $246,169.65. 
a. The CD that is reflected on the balance sheet as American Heritage should read Bank of Oklahoma. It was moved in August.  
b. There are 22 vendors for the fall meeting which adds $11,000 over the projected budget. 
c. Matt mentioned that the Board meetings might be moved further from the beginning of the month but the Board felt that data from the previous month was recent enough.
3. Two other documents were presented, the statements of revenues and expenses for the last 6 years as requested by Miki. The goal was to determine whether the budget could support the annual maintenance fees for the proposed website and membership database. The budget has increased in the last few years due to great vendor support at the meetings. If vendor support were to decrease, CE on the website might help supplement that income. After some discussion and review of the documents, the Board felt that OSHP’s income will be sufficient to support the expense of a website.
4. Matt learned from Pete, our account representative with the accounting firm, F.D. Thompson, that we were not using their full capabilities to set up accounts and budget in Quickbooks. This would automate the process and Matt could be trained to run reports and in turn, train the next treasurer, greatly simplifying the process. The information in Paypal is being manually put in Quickbooks when the process could be done electronically. Matt made a motion to have our accountants set this up in Quickbooks for us as long as the cost seems reasonable and it was seconded by Miki. It was approved.

C. Western District Chair (report submitted via email)
1. There was a question regarding resident membership fees. PGY1, PGY2 and first year pharmacists all pay a fee of $50 annually.
2. There will not be an October meeting.
3. The November meeting is currently on hold until a new sponsor is found. Boehringer is no longer able to sponsor.
4. There will not be a December meeting.

G. President 
1. ASHP President-elect Christene Jolowski has asked for recommendations for appointments to the ASHP council, advisory groups and other committees by November 14th. Five people were nominated last year and 2 people received appointments to various committees. Previously the Board wrote recommendation letters and ASHP required a current CV for nominees. This year, it is an on-line submission. Ann will research what needs to be done this year and report back to the Board.

3. The question was brought up that the OSHP website and membership renewal form states that membership dues paid after October 1st would cover the following years membership as well. After some research, Ben Welch discovered that the revised policy and procedures states that membership dues paid after July 1st will cover the following year. The renewal form and website will be changed to reflect this.
