Call to Order:

President Dudley Fetzer called the meeting to order at 12:00 pm in the Richmond Power and Light Auditorium.

The meeting minutes from the May 14, 2009 board meeting were presented for approval. David Burton so moved. Pam Merchanthouse seconded. The motion unanimously approved.

Old Business:

The balance sheet was distributed and discussed. Mrs. Holman pointed out that membership remains consistent, and July is usually the biggest membership billing month. Mr. Love motioned to accept the Balance Sheet as presented. Gary Arndts seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

New Business:

Executive Director’s Report:
Jane Holman delivered the Executive Director’s Report and reviewed projects relating to advertising and community relations such as our local EDC, Community Connections show, and purchasing an ad in the county map.

Mrs. Holman asked for the Board’s input regarding the annual meeting, and whether it should be held in the evening so public could attend, and if it should be advertised. Mr. Pendley motioned to hold the annual meeting on Thursday, September 10th at 12:00 noon. Tim Love seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

Next, Mrs. Holman invited the board to give their input regarding the next step for WayNet and to offer suggestions as to how she should concentrate her efforts. Mr. Fetzer said he felt we have ample links, and it may be good to make personal contacts with our members a priority. Mr. Love suggested that it is time for a redesign of the site, and perhaps a weekly feature item may be interesting, and felt a redesign of the site is more important than exploring social networking areas. Mr. Arndts thought it could be positive to highlight WayNet Members, and went on to discuss the best ways to use the web page, location of important information and those items that are most frequently used. Mr. Burton suggested marketing WayNet at Civic events, such as local fairs, Taste of Wayne County, and Mr. Arndts added that we could actually use the WayNet site to market WayNet.


Being no further business Beth Fields motioned to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Richard Peterson, and the meeting adjourned at 1:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Beth Fields
