Discussion:

Debbie Hansen asked that her name be withdrawn due to overwhelming duties in running her own business. She now feels that she can't afford the time to take on any new responsibilities.

Margaret Cohagan is willing to take on the responsibility but she is very busy with too many responsibilities in her church and would prefer not to commitment if we can find another candidate.

Ramona Davis agreed to take on the responsibilities of treasurer but later changed her mind because she has so many duties relating to her work and home that she felt she wouldn't be the asset we were looking for.

Sue Gibson is a school administrator with a background in bookkeeping. She has agreed to perform the duties of treasurer for CEM.

The president made a motion to accept Sue Gibson as the new treasurer for CEM and the motion was seconded by the secretary and passed.
