3.    Welcome, Lynn

 

Lynn provided background on herself and her ideas regarding development.  All were very excited to hear about her ideas and plans

 

4.    Board led fundraising

 

How does the board intend to fulfill the strategic plan mandate for the board to raise $6,000 this fiscal year?

 

The budget contains a line for $6,000 board led fundraising.  If the board does not raise that money, it will add $6,000 to the deficit.

 

The plan is to utilize the internet to create fundraising.  A suggestion was made for each member to send a link to the board led fundraising page.  A suggestion was made to raise funds for a tangible item

 

The goal may be to aim for fundraising around the Blues Festival.  Suggestion made for the workgroup to get together with Lynn and take the ideas and build them into a tangible plan to bring back to the board.

 

Motion: To refer the discussion back to the workgroup and the development committee to work together with Lynn to develop a tangible plan to bring back to the board in June.

Seconded

Consensus

 

5.    Staff Management Workgroup update

 

The workgroup has been formed and will meet on Friday, May 25, 2012.  Members include Lynn, Ani, and Erin from the staff and Marc, Ben, and Kate from the board.

 

A suggestion was made to understand political realities and focus on what the board will approve.  A response was made explaining that the group has been given the task to practice collaboration and find a plan that will work for everyone

 

6.    Membership drive update

 

Some early date analysis indicates that some shows are not bringing in money and question whether those shows are drawing listeners.

We need to find additional revenue streams and to reassess the winter membership drive

A request was made that the analysis include some of the shortfalls from this drive

Membership needs to work with development for fresh ideas for the membership drive

 

7.    Chehalis update

 

Motion: The board ratifies the action of the board to authorize the staff to file a six-month extension as long as only staff time and postage are involved.

 

A discussion ensued regarding whether the action taken to file for an extension was contrary to the vote of the board in May.

 

Amended Motion: The board ratifies the action taken to file a six-month construction waiver for the Chehalis frequency.  The board reaffirms that no further money will be expended on Chehalis.

Election deadlines are fast approaching.  To allow for adequate production and mailing time, the applications are due on June 27, 2012.  Everyone on the board should be recruiting as should the staff.  Look for members who are involved in committees and at the station and suggest that they apply.
