President's Report

Nominating Committee. Oceanna reminded the Board that we need another board member, and suggested that she and Bob get together to discuss potential prospects, and then go to lunch with them to get to know them better.

Executive Director's Report

Finances. Bob reported that we paid off one credit card, using the money that we earned from Bingo during the past year, and that we now have a savings account that is drawing interest in the bank.

Intern. We've had another change in our agreement with Morgan Anderson after her working here for 2 months. We had been paying her hourly, but in the last half of October she worked less than 7 hours. Robert said that he's willing to help do some of the work that Morgan hasn't been doing as a result of her time commitments elsewhere, and suggested that he could get together with Bob to discuss what he could do.

Since there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at 2:35 pm.

Minutes submitted by Pam Chambers, Acting Secretary, November 4, 2007.
