The minutes of the February 13 meeting were
approved upon motion of John Weber and second of Roger Smith.
On motion of Misty Dees Hollis and second of Pam Frantz the Executive
Committee declined to wave the membership fees requested by the
Arthritis Foundation. In the discussion the purpose of the fee-waiver as
assistance to not-for-profits with very small budget was sited. The
sense was that the Arthritis Foundation did not fit that category.
Executive Director's Report:
In the Executive
Director's report Jane focused on marketing activities, web site
development and membership changes over the last month.
A discussion of ways in which membership can increased where discussed.
This was prompted by Roger Smith's query about whether we had a good way
to track membership achievements against budget performance. Jane
Holman, Executive Director, displayed the annual budget and the group
noted the $10,000 short fall between budget and revenue from
memberships. Further discussion pointed out that about $5,000 of the
budget is equipment purchases that can be delayed if the revenues are
not there. Furthermore the short fall does not recognize improvements in
membership thus far this year.
The Executive Committee noted that the Richmond Community Schools has
raised their membership to the Platinum level. The Committee expressed
its appreciate for the support RCS has provided to WayNet. Several
individual organizations and categories of business were cited as good
possibilities for WayNet membership.
The president, Bill O'Hara announced that he will be appointing a
Nominating Committee shortly in order to put in place nominations for
the Board meeting in September.
Misty Dees Hollis presented her resignation from the Executive Committee
because of a reassignment of her responsibilities with the City of
Richmond. Mayor Shelley Miller has recommended the appointment of Amy
Spears for the position because Amy's responsibilities make her the more
appropriate representative to WayNet. Upon motion of Pam Frantz and
second of Tom Kirk, the Executive Committee accepts Misty's resignation
with regret and gratitude for her service, and appoints Amy Spears to
fill Misty Dees Hollis' un-expired term until September, 2002.
Adjournment: The meeting adjourned at 1:05 P.M.
