V. B. Wickwar moved that the Treasurer's Report be accepted. W. J. Raitt seconded the motion. The motion was passed unanimously.
J. J. Sojka presented the results of the multi-year tax issue with the California Franchise Tax Board. For SEC's 3-year involvement with Robert McPherron as an employee in California, the company incurred taxes and failed to understand appropriate filing procedures. In 2002, the full amount due California Franchise Tax Board with penalties was paid. All accounts with California are closed. See attachment for exact amounts. It was noted that SEC has an employee in Boulder Colorado (David Anderson) and the SEC accountants have assured us that all Colorado Tax Board filing requirements have been met.
R. W. Schunk stated that the fee applied to all new proposals has been raised from 4% to 6% based on reasons stated in the Minutes of the Fifteenth Annual General Meeting. Two contracts were initiated in 2002 under the new 6% fee and government auditors approved the new fee.
R.W. Schunk noted the new facility for Space Environment Corporation, which is rented from Nebulous Properties. The increased space was required to accomplish the increased contract work. The new address of Space Environment Corporation main office is 221 North Spring Creek Parkway, Suite A, Providence, Utah 84332-9791.
A discussion followed on the needs or not of a Space Environment Corporation flyer. It was agreed that the $1000 to $3000 commercial flyer was too extravagant at this time. Rather with SEC new 2-sided color printer and publication software, "we" should proceed to make an in house SEC flyer. Issues of professional appearance and content could be reviewed when a draft is available.
J. V. Eccles reported on the successes of fielding three instruments at Bear Lake Observatory: Canadian Digital Ionosonde, magnetometer, and a GPS scintillation monitor. A fourth instrument will be deployed in November, an HF monitor to infer D-Region absorption effects on HF signals.
V. B. Wickwar moved and W. J. Raitt seconded to adjourn the meeting at 9:36am.
J. Vincent Eccles, Secretary
