Tax-exempt status (re: the renewal e-mail we received this month?)
From Deanna: It was a company, called SImple 990, trying to charge $30 to file for your organization. I just did it online. We need to file an e-postcard, called form 990-N each year, between May 31st and October 15th. We are using Jim’s Battle Creek P.O. Box as our primary address. See image below. It’s easy to file - took about 20 minutes - I can walk a new treasurer through this at some point. We are still good with our non-profit status.

Short international report from Deanna, ASIFA meetings last week at Annecy Festival. I sent my informal report of the informal meeting out to the board now, FYI.

Hey, - Anniversaries: 2020 is ASIFA 60th Anniversary, also the 60th anniversary of the Annecy International Animation Festival… and the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations. ASIFA/Central, founded in 1975, will be 45 years old next year!!! Wow! We persist!
45th is Sapphire, 60 and 75 are both Diamonds!
