Looking ahead to 2015: board turnover, Bill

We may have one or more losses of long-term board members. We may need new members. In the past we’ve explored this by broaching names in advance to avoid possible conflicts.
Criteria: interest in communications/information technology. Interest in community in general and community building in particular.
We’re probably looking for 2-3 people.
This could be good for empty nesters or new to town.
So, let’s all start looking for names -- or asking our contacts for possible names.
Anne asked if we might have somewhere a list of people contacted in the past who might have been busy then, but available now. Perhaps inherited from Brian?

Committee reports

Anne asked if it’s time to get the finance committee back at work? To work on lowering expenses. We should discuss this Friday.
