The Nominating Committee presented the recommendation of E. Thomas Kemp
for membership on the WayNet Executive Board to fill a vacant unexpired
term. On motion of Pam Frantz and second of Steve Reynolds the motion to
appoint E. Thomas Kemp as a member of the Executive Board for the remaining
two months of the unexpired term and present his name to the WayNet
membership at the annual meeting for a two year term was passed. The
Nominating Committee will present its full report on nominations for the
Executive Board and officers at the next meeting of the Executive Board
and the annual membership meeting.
Jane Holman requested the Executive Board provide a policy
interpretation. She asked if it is permissible to include business
"grand openings" on the WayNet Community Calendar. Jane
explained that the policy has been that the Community Calendar be
non-commercial listing of community activities. The policy also requires
that activities announced be open to the public. The sense of the
Executive Board is that announcements of grand openings as posted by the
Richmond and Wayne County Chamber of Commerce (a WayNet member) for
their members is not inconsistent with the policies and could be listed
on the WayNet Community Calendar.
Director's report was presented.
President Bill Felker announced that he had asked Chris Hardie, Amy
Spears and Rodger Smith to form a planning committee for the annual

and second of Amy Spears approved the date of September 25 at 7:00 for
the meeting time. Schedule permitting the meeting will be in the Bard
Room at Morrisson-Reeves Library.
The meeting was adjourned at 12:40.
