Old Business
The balance sheet for the first eight months of 2004 was reviewed and approved on a motion by Thomas Kirk and a second by Rodger Smith. It showed an ending balance of $15,539.87 with several outstanding memberships yet to be received.

A waiver request for non-compliance with 501(c)3 Letter of Determination for the Richmond Art Club was denied on a motion by Thomas Kirk and a second by Rodger Smith.

The board approved a recommendation by Randy Baker to proceed with the move to a 501(c)3 tax classification for WayNet. The Board also approved a Purpose Statement:

The purpose of the corporation is to establish, operate and maintain an online repository of historical, cultural, business and civic information for the communities within Wayne County, Indiana:

  • To stimulate, encourage, enhance and promote cooperation and respectful exchange of information among the citizens of Wayne County, Indiana.
  • To promote, advance, and stimulate civic, business, commercial, educational, industrial, agricultural interest and general welfare in Wayne County, Indiana.
  • To stimulate public discussion by providing access and information from the Internet to other civic, educational, commercial, industrial, cultural and social service organizations.
  • And engage in related activities.

The motion was made by Thomas Kirk and seconded by Rodger Smith. Baker said the move “will not hurt present membership if we handle it correctly.”

Thomas Kemp said he would proceed with a resolution to be presented before the annual meeting on September. The change would take effect January 1, 2005.

Jane Holman presented some issues that should be addressed once we become a 501(c)3. These included Vision/Purpose, Administrative Policy, Marketing and Technical. It was suggested we keep the present committees setup to study these issues.

New Business
Randy Baker said board replacements will be needed for Bill Felker, Chris Hardie and Nancy Wilson who have chosen to cycle off the board.

Jane Holman presented the Executive Director’s report. It showed several membership removals and additions. She continued work on the Artists of Wayne County project with completion nearing. She also resolved a DNS resolution issue for Centerville-Abington Schools. And she reviewed website maintenance.

The Board accepted a Fee Waiver for the Conflict Resolution Center on a motion by Jim Buckler and seconded by Thomas Kirk.

The meeting adjourned at 1:24 PM. The next regular board meeting will be November 18, 2004 at 12 Noon, with lunch at 11:30 AM at Richmond Power & Light. Our annual meeting will be held September 28, 7 PM, at the Uptown Innovation Center.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill O’Hara Felker
