Presentation, Discussion and Action Item: Establish a Credit/Debit Card with ONE AZ CREDIT UNION, Connected to our Current Check Account. The Purpose is Due to the Fact that One of Our Vendors, Starlink, Only Accepts Funds Through that Method.

Mr. Carter and Frank explained to the board that the new vendor Starklink only accepts payments via credit card. The current treasurers John and Larry can meet up with Rachel at the credit union and get the card for the account.
Kathy Epperson made a motion to approve the establishment of a credit/debit card in connection with the One AZ Credit Union account for payment purposes to vendors; Bill Sakelarios seconded the motion; it was unanimously approved 7/0 by Larry Fuller, Kathy Epperson, Mike Westcott, Marvy McNeese, Jessica Vocca, Corey Christians and Bill Sakelarios.
Rachel, Larry and John will meet with the bank on Wed. Feb. 21st.
