IV. NEMS Update
Don reports that everything is moving along nicely. We have sent in a pre-application for the action grant and are confidant that Civil Sight group will have that done. There were two significant meetings. One with MWMO, Marcy, and Micayla along with Michael Christine and some other stakeholders. Sonja, Nic, and Don met at NEMS with school leadership as well. Lots of brainstorming and coordinating took place. Some curriculum work has started as well. Don has noted that we are somewhat moving into the “backseat” role on this project and the school leadership and other stakeholders will be taking on more of the planning and implementation.

V. BoD Checklist
The board reviewed some information regarding how the board perceives it’s current operation and procedures. We identified 5 key areas that we need to work on together to make the board better and made a plan for how to begin addressing these areas.

  1. There is a process for recruiting and selecting board members
  2. The board participates in fundraising
  3. There is a current strategic plan that is realistic
  4. The board has strong policies in place to govern the organization
  5. The board regularly reviews policies and procedures

Areas 1 & 2 will be addressed at the board level and 3 through 5 will be handled at the executive committee.
