Summary Board Minutes: February 25, 2020

Attending:  Rev. Gretchen Woods, Steve Hill, David Vallerga, David Stoutamire, Stephen Webster and Beth Harrison.  Suzanne Griffin attended by telephone.  Chris Stovall was absent.  Also attending were Anna Dyer, Cal Sloan, and Alex Stagner.   

Consent Agenda:  The Minister’s Report, Admin. Report, Connections Report, Search Committee Report, DRE Report, Personnel Committee Report and the Minutes of the Previous Meeting were accepted. 

Memorandum of Understanding:  The Board considered a supplemental housing proposal request from the Search Committee.  As the expenditure of money would require a vote of the membership we decided to take it up after a minister is selected and called, and after the onboarding process.  We spent some time balancing risks and benefits before deciding.

Finance Committee Report:  The Board accepted the report and will vote on the Budget after the Pledge Drive has been completed.

Nominating Committee:  Beth Harrison will be on the Nominating Committee.  She wants suggestions about the other 2 members.  We can vote on them by email. 

Bylaws:  David S. will bring proposed revised bylaws to the next meeting.  He will propose technical corrections yet keep open substantive changes for later.  The bylaws also need to extend the Program Council for a year.

Respectfully submitted,

David Vallerga, Recording Secretary
