Austin Convocational Steering Committee
January 15, 2006

Attendees: Diane Greer, Steve Ryder, Randal Hollahan.

Steve opened the meeting with a prayer.

Diane presented Treasurer's Report (see attached). Balance on hand is $733.16.
  • Diane noted that our $300 budget item for Diocesan Cursillo twice the assesment.

    There was some discussion about babysitting expenses. We decided to leave the policy as is, there will be babysitting at all Ultreya meetings, with no requirement for advance scheduling. The Diocesan requirement of two sitters(assuming $12.50 per hour for sitters) means $50 for a two hour Ultreya. If nobody shows us, the general policy is to pay the sitter for 1/2 hour, but that may not be the policy at all our churches.

    Randall plans to contact all churches that host Ultreyas to verify the 2006 schedule and ask about babysitter costs for Cursillo at that parish.

    We also discussed how many Ultreyas to offer per year. Diane commented that we offer more than most. We decided to leave 2006 as scheduled at 9 Ultreyas.

    Randall closed with prayer.
