The FY12 budget was approved unanimously.

Personnel – Randy continues to work with Amanda regarding her job description, as well as that of Program Director, a position that is still to be determined as to whether it will be full-time or part-time. Decision will be determined in part by the status of the best hire. Cecily observed that all staff now need to pick up the slack left by the departure of Jason, and Randy advised that there are weekly meetings to determine how specific duties are being assigned.
Board Development – Lois advises that no meeting had been held and no changes occurred. Cecily inquired about a board member handbook, and Mary Beth recommended consulting the Strategic Plan implementation for reference.
Elections – Nothing new to report in this area.
Strategic Plan Implementation – Mary Beth provided priority goals and accomplishments. Discussed staffing plan and what’s needed to identify the skills and attributes potential new
board members should have. Set goal of February 2012 for recruitment. An ad hoc committee was also recommended to arrange fundraising events. Various ideas of how this would be implemented were discussed.
CAB Development – Hardy advised that a productive meeting was held that attempted to better define the CAB and improve on its historical efficacy. Discussed ideal size of board, appointment process, and frequency of meetings. Of primary concern is to create diversity and identify members that would be committed to the health of the station. Board would contain three officers: Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary, and it was suggested that current Board members be proactive in suggesting referrals. The nature of the CAB was discussed and to what extent it can provide useful feedback. Committee members will attempt to attend the AZPM CAB meeting to observe procedures there and report back.
Technology – Terrestrial issues were discussed, and Amanda was recognized for her efforts in dissemination of information regarding engineering studies, tower and signal options, and lease agreements. Many options will be determined by tower lease negotiation results, which is still in planning process.
