RESOLUTION TO CHANGE THE INDEMNITY CLAUSE WORDING
The following statement was read and discussed to change as follows:
“I understand the need and requirement for the Florida Keys Watercolor Society (aka FKWCS) to require a release of liability for all its members and participants. In consideration of the right to participate in activities offered by the FKWCS or any of its leaders, directors, officers, instructors, or members, I hereby agree to RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, and HOLD HARMLESS the FKWCS, its leaders, directors, officers, instructors, and members from any loss or damage suffered by myself or any family member or guest that I bring to the FKWCS activity or event.

DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION RESOLUTION
Background: There is currently, as of the 2017 Bylaw Adoption, no provision for document retention and/or destruction. Presently, there are maintained documents dating to 2008 and before. Accepted business and not-for-profit practices are to retain some official documents as permanently archived and to schedule others for destruction on 1-, 3-, 5- and/or 7-year schedules depending on the IRS status or the organization.
The Treasurer, in coordination with the Vice-President, is responsible for the ongoing process of maintaining a fiscal document inventory, and for reviewing, and identifying records that have met the required retention period, and for overseeing their destruction after notification to the Board one month prior to the scheduled destruction.
No records specified in any legal hold may be destroyed, even if the scheduled destruction date has passed until the legal hold is withdrawn in writing by the President.
Any items or documents containing confidential information, i.e., bank or credit card information, materials containing donor names, documents containing financial information, documents containing personal information such as social security number, driver's license number, or financial information, must be shredded at the end of their retention period.
(After a comparative review of comparable organizations, the
following schedule of retention and destruction is recommended for adoption)
Permanent Records –Bylaws, addendums, revisions, historical precedents, corporate documents, board minutes, endowments, tax records, copyright and trademark registrations, pertinent financial data, and audits as directed by IRS organizational status and historical membership records where feasible.
7-Year Retention – Accounts payable and receivable, finalized claims-liability and accidents, canceled checks with exception of tax payments, etc., purchase orders, lease, insurance, and contract license records including software license agreements, and agreements for vendor services, independent contractors, and consultants.
5-Year Retention - Bank reconciliations and past budgets
3-Year Retention – Duplicate deposit slips, general correspondence, expired publications and procedures and expired membership records.
It was moved to accept document destruction as presented, seconded, and passed on 02/08/2023.
