Annual Fund

We have started having teams work on this job. The conferees are assigned to a team member who will then contact them while on island. There is also a 'Junior Chair' that is responsible for contacting young adults.

The head/chair of the committee should be named fairly early (ie March) so they can be involved in the pre-summer conference calls with the other conferences.
