Director's Report

Jane Holman asked if the Board wanted to allow Google advertisments more access to our web site. She presented to the Board the proposal that we allow Google access to our cut/copy/paste page. Board approved the proposal.

Jane will bring to the next meeting financial projections for the year.

Jane also reported that the cost of the calendar has increased and that it was less expensive if we paid for the year. The Executive Board approved paying for the year rather than month by month ($37 per month if paid yearly versus $49 if paid monthly). Jane shared that most of her time has been working on the new calendar. All agreed that the new calendar looked better and loaded quicker than the old one.

The Board agreed that for the next meeting we look at our Mission Statement. A Google Doc will be created with the Mission Statement posted, allowing suggested editing by all Board members prior to the next meeting.

A discussion was held about the four open slots on the Board. It was decided to wait until January to bring new members to the Board.


With no further business to discuss, Jenie Lehmann asked for the meeting to be adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Lynn Knight, Secretary
