Youth Advocate Position
Discussion about creating a half-time Youth Advocate position (20 hrs/week, with benefits), as opposed to the 19 hours it currently is. This position is also doing administration and program assistance. Becky suggests that the personnel committee draft a revised job description at 20 hours per week.
Chris informs us that the staff hopes to have a staff-endorsed management plan to present at the budget retreat on September 8th. This will give the Board time to ask questions before voting on the budget and management structure at the September Board meeting.
