Treasure’s Report- NO TREASURERS REPORT from San Diego CISM Team Treasurer Lisa Duchow. New account is opened. $665 in one account. In other account there is $7,222.59 (paid $2,000 for AV and reimbursed Lance for conference fees). Lisa had no statements to present to the Board for review. Lisa while looking on her phone at the San Diego CISM Team Chase Bank Account online, noticed the San Diego CISM Team is being charged a monthly service fee and had been for several months. She did not know the SDCISMT had been being charged. She does not receive statements via mail and did not see it in the past online. An undetermined amount had been deducted every month for several months. The other team members were unaware she had not been getting statements or that there was a recurring service fee since Lisa had not informed them of such charges. Verbal Treasurer Report only.
