1. Minutes of 2013 Annual General Meeting were approved (motion made by Sonya, seconded by Chuck.)

2. Treasurer's report.

We are ahead of budget, mainly due to a fee for a demo at Kohler. There was no spring dance in 2014. The budget is the same as last year. Discussion about electronics/technology. Diana, Val and Paul will look into equipment. Motion to set aside $1000 for music technology equipment for classes and demos (motion made by Paul, seconded by Sonya). Motion carried.

3. Midwest Scottish Weekend

Attendance was about 50, the goal is 60+ people.

Discussion about support for attendees of the Midwest Scottish weekend. It was agreed to clarify earlier poorly documented AGM and board actions in regard to dancer support for the Midwest Scottish Weekend. A motion was made by Ken and seconded by Sonya to adopt the following procedure.

Milwaukee Scottish Country Dancers will provide financial support in the sum of $50.00 per dancer who meet the following criteria:

1. Any current dues-paying member in good standing may apply for this incentive.

2. Member has paid for, attended, and fully participated in the Midwest Scottish Weekend.

3. Member must apply to the treasurer within 3 months of the workshop.

The motion carried.

4. New business:

Fall dance: will be held at Our Lord's United Methodist Church on Saturday Oct. 25, 2014.

Waukesha Highland Games: Ken will submit paperwork. Same as last year.
