Staff Reports

Old Business:

· Newsletter

o Cost is approximately $2100 per issue ($1300 to print and $800 to mail)

o Can have "underwriting" with limitations such as type of business and statements saying not endorsed

o Uses non-profit mailing (about $.09 to mail, but returns are first class charge)

o Currently serves as monthly 4-H newsletter as well

o No real additional cost for less copies (about 1500 minimum)

o Lesser copies would have less per piece cost, but would have same type and set charges

o It is harder to get material for some of the areas (could be modified, done on a rotating basis, or could look at less frequency with alternatives for 4-H)
