President of BOD and chair of development committee will meet with each board member to determine and identify roles re: fundraising and development.
Finance: David advises that we are in good position. The reports were reviewed and budget issues discussed. A final draft budget will be presented for approval at the October Board meeting.
Bylaws: Hardy reports that there has been no activity in this area.
Personnel: Now that Jason is leaving, his position might be split into two separate positions. The current staff will be filling in for now. It was determined that an exit interview with Jason would be conducted, to include Hardy and the
executive committee. Ernesto requested to be present during the exit interview as well. Lois asked how information would be captured/used/shared for future reference. Issues around confidentiality were discussed, which will be considered by participants in the interview process.

Elections: Nothing new to report in this area.
Strategic Plan Implementations: Mary Beth reported that the Technology Committee is addressing the issues and shaping priorities based on the current plan.
CAB Development: Debra reported that the CAB met last week and reviewed the Quarterly Issues Programming report and PSA report. They are looking for more members. The Board discussed CAB recruitment issues. It was suggested that on-air announcements be run to recruit more members to the CAB; Randy advised that in his opinion this was a bad idea. Cecily Crebbs added that this opinion was like based on specific past experiences and that efforts should be made to advocate for diversity of opinions. Amanda advised that the CAB has a feedback project planned for the KXCI booth at Tucson Meet Yourself. Discussion was held as creating a structure/purpose for the CAB. Debra and Hardy both volunteered to serve on the CAB Development committee.
Technology: Reviewed the state of the website redesign. Marc reported that the last bid received will likely be accepted. The August tech meeting went well, focusing on terrestrial broadcast issues. Amanda presented photos of the broadcast area and reported on ideas shared by the engineers currently working on the issue for us. Their thoughts will be more fully developed and then added to our plank in the capital campaign. The tech committee also reviewed Gregory Sweet’s report regarding our tower lease. It was agreed to further examine this issue at the board retreat.
V. Volunteer Representative
Ernesto is new to the position. He will work with staff to schedule both a volunteer meeting and a volunteer appreciation party.
