    • Work more closely with Strategic Plan committee

  • Executive Committee Recommendations:
    • Hire someone to do bookkeeping and donor care
    • Resolve the “tension” between the founders, board, and staff by finding a device to do this
    • Figuring out how to manage burnout for ED, Board and Staff
  • Michael’s thoughts:
    • Loving relationship with Kasey Thompson from Lenfest
    • Feeling better about relationship with staff
    • Feels isolated
    • Should be diversifying our income streams
    • Should we have a “think outside the box” brainstorming session with a Rogue Strategic Planning committee??

Committee Recommendations:

  • Need to have a “to do” list for each committee meeting! Michael has worked on one, and will be distributed to ALL committee chairs at our January Meeting
