Board Meeting

Sep 20, 1998

1. Approve Board Members to Fiscal Controls Committee - Vote or NOT
This was a carryover from the last Board Meeting, where Suggested Solutions were discussed. The Committee appointed would serve at the pleasure of the Board, and would report back to the Board in specified period of time, for example in 3 months, on ways and means to prevent embezzlement or misappropriation or confusion due to poor accounting practices.
2. Revisit Article 4, Section 14, re Lockbox - Vote or NOT
Our current Bylaws state that the lockbox keeper must be a Board Member, not an Officer. Since Brand has been elected Treasurer, we have two choices - to have another Board Member keep the lockbox, or make the Bylaws less specific. Since there is no conflict otherwise with the Treasurer being a record holder for the Secretary, this being a passive clerical act, we could make the Bylaws less specific. Here are the Current Bylaws, and the Suggested Change.
3. Approve Storyboard for Video Clip of Pole Shift - Vote or NOT
During the April Board Meeting a Video Clip of Pole Shift grant proposal was accepted and placed on the web in the list of projects looking for funding. Michel has drafted a Storyboard and Vivo Video and is seeking approval from the Board on his approach.

Extensive discussion occurred around the Storyboard at the last Board Meeting. It was noted that the Storyboard was too long for a 6 minute video, but extensive trimming will occur. The suggestions made during the discussion were:

4. Physical Place of Business - Report by President
The Bylaws were amended in early 1998 in accordance with an IRS concern that the corporation had no physical Place of Business. The President has an accepted offer on a family homestead in Wisconsin, which can become this physical Place of Business in the future. The Site offer the potential for solution demonstrations, and the two Front Rooms, with their own entry, will be available to the nonprofit as entry and Office Space.
