On-air trainings are going great, and will be offered about twice a month.
Siena distributed, and asked Board members to sign, Conflict of Interest statements.

VIII. Consent calendar

B. Board finalizes the deletion of policy 6.19.1, “Underwriting -- Read On-Air,” which received first consideration in March.

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 first of two required approvals.

Noel moved to approve consent calendar, Jack seconded; 5 yeas.

IX. Treasurer’s report -- see also Finance Com. minutes in Public File.
Julia has resigned as Treasurer; her letter is in the board packet. Nella’s appointment as Treasurer will be added to next month’s Consent Calendar.

Nella: Treasurer’s reports should not be required so long as Finance Committee meeting Minutes are made available. Troubled about the amount of pressure on Jeanette to deal with complicated financial questions. She suggests a semi-annual meeting to look at financials. There is a monthly budget-to-actual report, and if it’s not way off, then questions be saved for that semi-annual review.

Discussions around finding options for line-of-credit. A financial consultant a year ago said we should use the $50K to secure a line of credit, and wants to see a system that makes people jump through hoops before money is spent - Board approval, if a payback scheme for withdrawals is included. Jack asked that Finance Com. reports include expressions of short- and long-term concerns.
X. Unfinished business
A. CPB requirements (see esp. pp. 16-17: CPB general provisions). Reminder: HAF offers a class on multi-cultural inclusion. Siena is still working on setting up a workshop to comply with that requirement.
B. Auditor’s contract – Jeanette has communicated to the auditor, but hasn’t heard back and there is not yet a signed contract. JT said that Stacy has agreed to May 31 if we got required documents to her by the end of the week, which seems unlikely.
C. Tech proposal – tech reserve? Emerald Tech coming in - see Mgr’s Report. Jeanette reminded that it was discussed in Finance Com.
D. Budget approval – and discussion of deficit, if there is one.

Noel moved we approve the Finance Com recommendations regarding the 3 line-items (which would result in Board approval of the 2014 Budget) and the approval of $5K from the Fitch Fund to make our website more user-friendly to smaller devices, Mark seconded. Unanimously passed.
Jama said Minutes should be explicit about $5K having been withdrawn from Fitch funds for website project. Nella: it must always be clear when expenditures are paid for with Fitch funds.

XI. New business
A. SM report on FCC and CPB matters. Jeanette: KZYX and KHSU also have not yet received their FCC licenses.
B. Consider creation of a Compliance Com. – tabled.*
C. Create new Board job description – tabled.*
D. Schedule date with Management Evaluation Com. to meet with Board. A discussion was had during closed session. Noel moved we forgo the MEC meeting with the Board. Nella seconded. Unanimous.
E. Board member absences – [This discussion took place following the Closed Session.] Mark moved that we add to the agenda discussion of Kim Peterson’s absences from Board meetings. Jack seconds; passed unanimously. Nella moved we terminate Kim’s appointment to the Board. Marcy seconded. Five yeas, Noel abstained.

Redwood Community Radio - Board of Directors
Tues., Apr. 1, 2014
Healy Senior Center, Redway, CA
I. Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President
II. Roll call: MEMBERS’ REPS - President Siena Klein, Treasurer Julia Minton, Nella White. PROGRAMMERS’ REPS - Vice President Noel Soucy, Marcy Stein. BOARD-APPOINTED - Christine Doyka, Mark Marchese. Station Manager Jeanette Todd (ex-officio). Absent: Secretary Jack Frybulous, Kim Peterson.
Others Present: Jama Chaplin, Bob Stern
III. Approval of March minutes postponed
IV. Approval of Agenda- Julia moved to approve the Agenda. Christine seconded. Approved unanimously.
V. Open time - Speakers will be assigned an amount of time not to exceed five minutes.
Jama - If there is time at the Evaluation Retreat, the Board Member’s job should be discussed. The Handbook doesn’t include the gist of what it means to be a Board Member. It would help potential Board Members to understand what the job is about.
Marcy - There was a recent workshop that addressed this issue, and hopefully we can start this discussion at our retreat.
VI. Management report- See report in Board Packet.
VII. Discussion / questions for Management
• Christine - Question about allocating funds to maintain the transmitters.
• Nella - Beth, Nella and Jay are having a meeting on April 16 regarding Donor Snap.
• Siena - Would it be good if we allocated $3,500 towards the transmitters?
• Jeanette - Would like the Board to read Simon’s report before allocating money towards the transmitter? She would like to see it keep moving forward.
• Julia - Depreciation is real assets losing value. We need to save as much money every year as is lost to depreciation.
• Jeanette - Does the Board have any thoughts on what we could do about the camping at the station problem?
• Noel - I would like to see a live-in at the station that would have the responsibility of dealing with this issue.
• Jeanette - The station is very inviting, with all the fruit trees, free coffee, bathroom and microwave. Staff is pretty burned out about dealing with this issue; the homeless have nowhere to go.
• Marcy - Programmers need a late night sign-in sheet for guests at the station, and a gate. We need to have more policing.
• Noel - I don’t think that programmers are the root of this problem. It is really part of the bigger issue of homelessness in our community. I don’t see where having a sign-in sheet for programmers is going to help. I think we need to talk about this issue in committee.
• Julia - Would like to see KMUD continue to be open to the community. Maybe designating volunteer hours as a policy would help. Mateel has a live-in.
• Siena - Suggests that Policy Committee address this issue.

VIII. Consent calendar
A. Rohn Jennings is appointed to Policy Com.
B. Jim Lamport is appointed Elections referee.
