SUBJECT: Office Manager's Report - February
Our official bank balance as of today is $62,666.22 in checking, $4,952.31 in savings, and
$29,873.30 in a six-month $30,000 treasury bill.
" Telephone Service - I've got a proposal from Logix Communications and will check with
one or two other companies. Logix would cost us about the same as our current provider
Mpower, or perhaps $50 more per month. Logix fees would depend on whether or not we
can use the router we already have and whether or not we choose to have 3-way calling.
Without those two options, their monthly cost would be about what we're paying now
Mpower. With Logix we'd be paying 4.5 cents per minute long distance, compared to 4
cents with Mpower, and we'd have a larger band width (more speed) for Internet access -
448K compared to 320K we now have.
o The downside of Mpower is that they've been sold, their Austin staff seems to have
disappeared, and their customer service is practically non-existent.
o The downside with SBC is that communication among their myriad of offices is in a
constant snarl, so billing problems are impossible to solve.
" Convention - Both full mailings have been processed. Remaining mailings will be: board
member contacts of publishers not registered, special invitation to past presidents, last
(probably faxed) notice to publishers and associate members.
o Kestrel Printing is working on the program.
o Contracts: Bullock Museum contract signed, deposit paid, remainder due 3/17;
buses contract signed, deposit paid, remainder due 3/9; RKGroup still being
finalized; Bar & Grill Singers letter agreement only; Barton Creek Resort contract
signed, deposit paid; pianist telephone agreement only.
o Helen has ordered award plaques.
o Speaker details for rooms and A/V are being collected.
" Linage Report revision - Sign-up for the 2003 (revised) Linage Report is complete and
Helen will be e-mailing the January report today or tomorrow. Last year's special
advertising committee redefined ROP inches, removed preprint data as a separate item, and
added percent variation of total revenue. Both the report and data form are now computer
friendly - they are easily viewed and used on the computer screen, and they are transmitted
Here’s what’s next.
