Treasurer’s Report and Finance Committee:
Paul informed the board that the reporting process that Mary Alice, Elva and he have been using is now streamlined and Paul now receives four reports instead of ten-twelve reports. Mary Alice will also send the Statement of Activities YTD compared to budget and the fourth report which is the Cash Disbursements journal.
Paul reviewed the financial reports for the months ending in March and April. The finance committee met and spent time discussing the draft Investment Policy Statement for the Foundation. The Investment Policy Statement may soon be ready for the committee to present and recommend adoption to the board.
Most of the governance committee members are terming off. There are three candidates being considered and one that is of particular interest is an attorney who also has radio experience and good volunteer experience. Yissel also spoke with a past board member who expressed interest in returning to the board. Jill reported that there is a member of the development task force that may be interested as well.
Jill reported that the task force met on May 10 and between their February meeting and the recent May meeting, she and Amanda proceeded to work through the development plan, getting the baseline plan in place. The plan was shared with the task force generating good feedback. The task force will meet in August and will add specific targets and goals to the plan and create stronger benchmarks. A major gift plan will be created with the title of leadership giving. Jill is recommending the IWAVE program for KXCI, a donor research software program out of Canada.
Volunteer Rep Update:
President Yissel has been in touch with Neto and his official term ends in August. The volunteer form will be distributed to all active volunteers by the ED.
