B. Nella is appointed Treasurer, and is excused from attendance at Ex Com meetings to plan the Boardâ€™s agenda.
C. The Board revises policy 2.2.7, Parliamentarian, to read: "At each new Board's first meeting, it shall appoint a Parliamentarian who is familiar with the meeting rules in this Policy Manual. The Parliamentarian is assisted by Policy Committee members, as well as all board members, in supporting the President by keeping RCR meeting rules in mind during Board meetings." This is the second of two required approvals.

Involving a bank (via the line-of-credit) with the possibility of substantial penalties would serve to keep us on our toes.
