Concern Over Combines Investigation Act – 1966

Looking Back July 2

October 9, 2020

The directors must have been concerned with the possibility of inquiries from investigators for the federal Combines Investigation Act. In the first meeting of the year they passed their budget, which contained a sum of $900 for Combines Act – Legal Fees.

That budget showed an anticipated income of $29,000 and expenditures of $28,798. The association manager’s salary was shown as being $7,500 per year. Later that year the Board raised his salary to $8,500.

In September 1966, CEDA completed the assignment of computer identification numbers (the beginning of the C.I.N. numbering system as it is today). At the time it was noted that a number of our members were already using computers.
