Brian has been invited to Development Committee meeting in March and will do a presentation to the Board in April.
b) Finance: Report C: Total income was $9449 below budget, but in underwriting costs we were below budget by $5,695, so net underwriting was off target by about $2200. Total expenses of $34,568 for the month were slightly more than the budgeted $36,162, less than 10%. Year-to-date net underwriting revenue is actually tracking slightly ahead of budget at a positive $1,971 variance, or 6%. Total revenues year-to-date are $16,991 ahead of budget. With expenses below budget by almost $4,000, net income is also ahead of budget after 4 months of the year by $21,122. We are off to a good start with the fiscal year so far.
c) Bylaws: Hardy has nothing to report.
d) Personnel: Hardy has nothing to report. Still need Amanda’s job
e) Board Development: Susan Banes, nothing to report. A Board application has been sent out but nothing has been returned. Mary Beth discussed the General Manager Evaluation will take longer than expected. Susan spoke to the fact that this has never been done and sees it as a way for this Board to leave a legacy for the station. It’s a useful process to help gain leadership and sets up a way for the Board to oversee management. Katie has a Board/election question. There are appointments available. Can have 19 members, 5 appointments are currently available. Katie asked if we had put out any announcements for more Board diversity during shows that have a diverse audience. Susan thought that was a great way to get more interested parties. Next election is in June. Susan suggested some promos on Wednesday, Thursday evenings and Sunday morning shows. Randy added that committees are also looking for volunteers.
f) Election Marc Goodman handed out an election schedule. Randy said it’s the exact same schedule as last year except by one day off. Electing three year terms currently held by Vance, Susan, and Michael. Motion to approve the schedule by Hardy, seconded by Michael. Passed unanimously.
g) Strategic Plan Implementation Mary Beth sent out copious notes from the Technology Committee. The actions of the Tech Committee and Development Committee are part of long term goal formations and there will be a need to adjust the Strategic Plan at the next Board retreat.
h) CAB Development Meeting next Wednesday at 6 pm. Jamie would like to have a meeting to get more community members on the CAB. Debra asked if we are running PSA’s related to the 7 items of concern noted with the CAB. Jamie noted that those 7 areas are education, the environment, state & city budget crisis, border issues, arts & culture funding, the strain on social services, and health care.
i) Technology: Debra read about Jason in the Arizona Daily Star hiking up to the transmitter. Mary Beth sent out copious notes to the Board on the recent
Tech Committee meeting. Jamie and Mary Beth are still chairs. Cecily has agreed to subchair the Web Committee. Looking for a subchair for the terrestrial committee. (Marc Goodman has agreed to chair this sub- committee.) Subchair just needs to organize the committee and sets up meetings. Debra asked if someone not on the Board chair a sub-committee. Only Board members can chair committees but non Board members can be in committees.
V. Volunteer Representative Report Anne is not here. Randy spoke for the events coming up. The membership drive starts February 24th. The Peace Fair is February 26th.

The Folk Festival is April 30-May 1. Amanda asked for Board sign-ups.
VI. GM Report (staff report) Randy doesn’t think he will need an extension for the CPB grant, should file it a few days ahead of the due date.
