Stewart will contact Robert Kraus on what the status is of US Territory affiliates. They are now available to be voting members.
Stewart will move DNS from old website to new website. Go Daddy is having a difficulty with transferring the DNS. We are using Go Daddy’s main servers, but are hosting email through google?
C-Panel will be able to host mail forwarders. But also can handle email addresses in addition. Working to set up Piper Mail. Process has been dragging, but should be resolved shortly.

George and Stewart will test between each other.
We need something to accept money. PayPal etc…
Need passwords for PayPal.
Bo and Lee have not been able to connect on their schedules in order to facilitate transfer of banking information and passwords.
There is some discussion about potential new bank account to accept donations from convention. New PayPal to new account.
Bo spoke with Lee and has passwords to Wells Fargo account. But cannot have access til Bo and Lee arrive at different Wells Fargo branches for transfer of account. New Card will be issued at that time, as well as counter checks.
Lee never transfered bank account over to Michael Pako.
Should we open up new account?
Is it necessary to protect continuity?
No activity for 9 months on our bank account.
All info shall be forwarded through Slack once again, in case Stewart gets hit by a bus.
Will need to track down PayPal info.
Bo will reach out on that activity as well.
LSLA.org goes to new website, but with “private” message until we open it up.
Must have a way to receive and pay money.
Treasurer is advised and requested to open new bank account and PayPal. Once we gain access to old accounts, balances to be transferred to new account.
Will that require more time than gaining access to old?
Bo can open new account, Leigh may issue a check to clear old accounts.
No further question.

The forward is functional, and can be used to set up accounts.
Should be able to set up new PayPal with same address.
