This meeting of the Board and Leadership Team (which includes anyone attending) is the first meeting of the Board after the Sept 15 Annual Meeting. There is a lot of business to conduct. Here is an initial proposed agenda:
Election of Board officers according to bylaws.
Appointment or recruitment of Board members if less than seven total are in place after the 9/15 meeting. Alternative: propose bylaw changes according to bylaws Article 9.
Schedule another Annual Meeting after mid-January in order to review the financial results for fiscal year ending 12/31/19, approve the 2020 budget and strategic plan, and make any major fundraising decisions.
Set BWW goals and assign them to individuals or committees to accomplish. Define tasks and seek volunteers among workshop participants to expand the ranks of contributing members.
Reach agreement if not done on 9/15 on BWW’s interpretation of Article 1 of bylaws, i.e.: May BWW charge for certain activities (not including regular workshops) for fundraising purposes?
Decide whether or not to explore collaborations with other organizations that would permit them to use our Studio with contributions towards its rent expense. If so, decide on limitations and criteria.
Discuss with Mud Season Review if there are ways to involve other BWW participants in MSR activities (and vice versa) and the proposed role of MSR financial contributions to BWW’s budget.
If you have suggestions for what to include or change on the agenda, please email Elaine at firstname.lastname@example.org
