April Camp Noel Porter Board Updates

April Camp Noel Porter Board Updates

by Camp Noel Porter Board of Trustees

The Camp Noel Porter Board of Trustees met on April 12th at the Office of the Bishop, and welcomed Gina Schumacher, who has agreed to serve as treasurer. The board heard reports on several administrative matters. Due to required tax forms not being filed with the Franchise Tax Board for over five years, Camp Noel Porter is scheduled to lose its non-profit status in May 2016. An attorney has been retained to guide the board through the process of retaining or recovering this status, and the required paperwork is being filed.

Camp Noel Porter has been unable to renew its insurance policies due to the lack of permanent on site staffing, and the board is working with Church Insurance to establish a new insurance policy. The board also learned that the tractor owned and used by Camp Noel Porter is neither the tractor that we have licensed nor the one that has been insured. The appropriate steps are being taken to correct these issues.

The board has made a commitment to be as transparent as possible. As the issues and challenges facing Camp Noel Porter are significant and complex, the board has decided to publish the minutes of board meetings, and related documents, on the Camp Noel Porter website here: www.campnoelporter.org. The minutes from all board meetings since 2015 Diocesan Convention will soon be available.
