No quorum. No formal decisions.

1. Recruitment of General Manager

Howie Hawkins reported that he, Joseph Bryant, and Shirley Rowser met with Davine Bey on Sunday, April 21 to work through the due diligence questionnaire to develop recruitment materials. Davine expects to have materials ready by Friday, April 26.

The board needs to develop a benefit package to offer to the general manager (and other staff), including health insurance, life insurance, Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA), Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA), 401(k) retirement plan, and paid vacation, sick days, and holidays.

On the paid days off, we suggested two weeks vacation (14 days), 5 sick days, and 8 holidays (New Years, King, Presidents, Memorial, Independence, Labor, Thanksgiving, Christmas).

2. Website

Brian Fenno showed the website as it appears on a computer and, somewhat differently for readability, on a smart phone. We discussed how the banner with logo at the top should look and some content that needs to be added.

The next steps to take are (1) a bank account to link to the paypal account on the website for membership certificate purchases and (2) a session with Brian to learn how to add and subtract pages.

Brian will be available to help until May 8.

Respectfully submitted,
Howie Hawkins, Secretary
