Motion to Approve Budget Motion to approve the AAPS budget: Be it resolved that the AAPS budget prepared by the Board be approved as presented.
1% Benefits Fund Motion Motion to make permanent changes in the 1% benefits fund: Whereas: The 1% benefits fund was created to make improvements in the benefits provided to members; and AAPS was notified in the fall of 2006 that the fund was in deficit position and that changes needed to be made to decrease the cost of the benefits improvements provided; and The AAPS Board made an interim decision in the fall of 2006 to cease the payment of ¼ of the MSP premiums out of the fund subject to member approval at this meeting; and Ceasing payment of ¼ of the MSP premiums was the only change possible in the fund that spread the impact of change across the majority of the membership; and Ceasing payment of ¼ of the MSP premiums should stabilize the fund for several years into the future; Therefore be it resolved that the members of AAPS confirm and make permanent the ceasing of the payment of ¼ of the MSP premiums out of the 1% benefits fund.
