Executive Board Meeting
12:00 Noon - Call to order - Chris Hardie, presiding.
Minutes of the November 14 meeting were approved on a motion by Thomas Kirk and a second by Larry Turner.
The board gave Executive Director Holman authority to approve a fee waiver for Petra Project, Inc. after she receives appropriate financial documents. A fee waiver for Moms Club is still under advisement.
The balance sheet for 2002 was presented showing WayNet in the black by $2,330.13 with a year end balance of $15,614.16.
The 2003 budget of $35,347.65 was reviewed and approved on a motion by Thomas Kirk, seconded by Amy Spears. The budget includes a 5% salary increase for the Executive Director… the first in two years. The increase is retroactive to January 1, 2003. Bill Pendley suggested the Executive Committee take an annual look at the salary.
Other discussion centered on a $4,147.65 deficit in the budget. Mr. Turner said there needs to be supporting evidence to cover the difference. Mr. Kirk said the Board should review the budget at the next quarterly meeting: 1) Delay in purchase of equipment; 2) word of Wayne County Foundation grant; 3) look further at alternative income; and 4) new membership/marketing restructuring. President Hardie said hopes to revamp ways to bring in income; the current way is not working.
Mr. Kirk said the grant about "Artists of Wayne County" has been resubmitted to the Wayne County Foundation for February awards.
President Hardie presented his "Vision for WayNet." It includes Motivation, Current Site Issues, Overview of New Vision among others. Mr. Hardie said he would e-mail the presentation to members of the board for their review. A special meeting to discuss the report is being planned.
The meeting adjourned approximately at 1:20 PM. The next regularly scheduled meeting is Thursday, April 17, 2003 at 12 Noon at Richmond Power & Light (Lunch at 11:30 AM).
