Waynet Board Meeting
Called to Order:
Amy Spears was introduced as the newest board member. Amy represents the City of Richmond's Community Development office, and replaces Misty Dees Hollis following a restructuring of staff positions at the City.
The administrative board password on the WayNet site was reviewed, again.
The Executive Director's report was presented. There were no questions.
Bill noted that the board needed to appoint a Nominating Committee
for the board positions that would soon be opening up. He asked Pam
Frantz to head it, and she will work with others to nominate new board
It was noted that it would be useful to have certain pages on the site available in multiple languages. The board discussed various methods for making this possible, including the use of third-party real-time translation services like Babelfish, and the use of local language students interested in practicing their skills.
The board brain stormed ideas for a "Top 10 Reasons to Join WayNet" list. Several ideas were put forth, but they did not number ten. There was general discussion about the nature of WayNet and what made it attractive to various audiences. Other ideas were put forth about ways to attract new members and promote WayNet's mission and image in the community.
The meeting was adjourned at 12:52.
