MINUTES
Redwood Community Radio – Board of Directors
Tues., Nov. 10, 2015 – 3:30
Redwood Playhouse, Garberville, CA
I.Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President
II.Roll call:  Members’ Reps – President Siena Klein, Cody Comfy Dillon. Programmers’ Reps – Secretary Jack Frybulous, Vice-president Dan Murphy, Jimmy Durchslag (arrived 3:36). Board-appointed – Christine Doyka (arrived 3:42), Mark Marchese. Station Manager Jeanette Todd. Absent: Maria Savage, Treasurer Sarah Scudder.
III.Approval of Oct. minutes. Siena moved to approve, Jack seconded; unanimously approved.
IV.Approval of agenda – Closed Session (personnel) added after New Business, and budget discussion added after Closed Session. Dan seconded; unanimously approved.
V.Open time - Jimmy Robinson was our sole visitor.
VI.Management report - All Board members must know what’s in the CPB Community Services Grant handout; one aspect that concerns JT is the relatively sophisticated records-keeping CPB requires of stations. $13,958 is in the Signal upgrade account; $39,770 in checking; $50K in reserve, and $3500 in a second reserve account. Suzanne Beers remains the executrix of the Fitch estate, and an accounting has been requested. Eric Kirk is said to have sent stuff twice before. 
VII.Discussion / questions for Management – Mark asked about other check-signers. Jeanette will put on CSAR that office staff had been experiencing serious email problems. 
 
VIII.Consent calendar
A. “Pledge Drive” is made a standing committee. Jack moved to approve this; Dan seconded. Unanimously approved.
B. The Board directs that Julia Minton’s name be substituted in the necessary places with that of Treasurer Sarah Scudder. Siena moved that we add Sarah, Jeanette Todd, Simon Frech, and Dan Murphy to the list of approved check-signers at the Community Credit Union of Southern Humboldt; Christine seconded. Unanimously approved.
IX.Finance Com. report – Jimmy: Oct shows $15K net income, and net of $16K for the year. We don’t believe our financial statements, because we know they don’t reflect reality, and asked JT to explain in more detail. Jeanette: many expenses are not recorded, a lot of money moved from Fitch to cover day-to-day expenses, and we don’t see that. Fundraising account not updated in more than 3 months, balance sheets not reflecting that. Coffee booth bills, and floors still unpaid for. Has to do withnot having enough time to balance accounts, concerned that when we’re not up-to-date and don’t have good numbers, seems a little ahead of ourselves to make budget for next year when this year’s budget figures aren’t in. Some underwriters haven’t been billed, money is in bank accounts, but not reflected in statements. Dian agrees that she can put in 4 hrs Tues and Fri, but a lot more time is needed. What does the Board want to see happen?
 
An additional accountant or bookkeeper is needed to help us get through this; possible candidates: Sarah, Taun Moody, the Beginnings bookkeeper, Erin Larsen. JT will ask Dian to suggest someone. Siena asked about CCUSH to come and talk to us again, to be brought up at next Finance meeting. 
X.Unfinished business
A. Strategic plan check-in – prioritizing items that came out of followup meeting, see pp 23 and 31. JT suggests each Board member takes responsibility of one event, from start to finish. Important to delegate. Reminder: get list of unpaid pledge payments. Dan asked next meeting on Strat plan, to which JT said if we could prioritize what’s on p. 31, we’ll be much closer to announcing a date for the next strat plan meeting with staff. JT will prioritize and assign items for further discussion. Comfy mentioned a program Sean showed him for long-range planning. Jim: thinks there was more there than can be done. His concern: too much. Strat plan is a wish list that needs to be narrowed down. Mark … Siena: we didn’t re-visit the progress of the Strat plan made in 2009, suggests place-holder in Board meetings’ agenda. So (again) Jeanette will tackle this and send out suggestions.
B. Issues fm policy: violence, syndication, uploading shows, financial emergencies.
Dan moved to table; Jack seconded. (This motion was later withdrawn.)
* violence still doesn’t have forms, see p. 27 of packet.
* syndication; JT and Comfy think more ppl need to be involved. Cody: not a priority now. Jim asked what’s the priority for use of our facilities? Doesn’t think it’s an issue. 
* uploading shows – see p. 28 of packet.
Jim moved to adopt the amendment to the Programmers’ Agreement as-is. Cody seconded; unanimously approved.
Prog reps will talk to  Cynthia, and the whole PA will be re-submitted in January.
* financial emergencies. I moved that “will” be substituted for “should”. Jimmy seconded. Unanimously approved. First 2 items stay with Policy.
C. Elections Com. – chair, timeline. I can’t be involved. Jim will run P election. Siena will guide Members’ election. Dan will do Mgmt Eval. Mark declares his intention to run for a Members’ seat. ACTIONS: Siena will ask Maria to join elections. Siena: a Mediation Com person (and Programmer) needs to be elected. Siena and Christine will look into Mediation Com.
 
XI.New business
A. Update compliance calendar. Dan will send us a revised version.
B. Meet in December? Dan points out the budget needs work. / Celebration
C. Continue to record Board meetings? Yes.
D. Board review of Agreements we make with sub Programmers – Note the comment at the bottom of p. 30. Jim said CC is able; Programmer reps would assist with the PDs how to handle situations. Cody suggests adding language like “for 3 weeks, or 3 shows” etc. Jimmy asks the PDs to draft the language they want, then P reps will present it to the Ps. Is there lang in the PA that subs must be reported to the PD? 
E. Hiring com update.
F. Board responses to communications / use of list-serv. Jimmy pointed out that I’d suggested Amy’s letter be replied to incl the list-serv. We empowered JT to do this. I asked if the person who expressed an interest in forming a Mendo CAB had been contacted. Siena said Anon Forest is the person’s name. Christine will write up draft replies.

Beth had basically 3 topics: 1) asked if there were funds for DJ’s travel to the station; and – with regard to recent events – reminded the Board of her experience as a labor and employment attorney. Concerned about 2) improper and detrimental list-serv access, and that the person recently involved in making unsubstantiated allegations on the list-servs hasn’t gone into any specifics. 3) Lack of accommodation regarding service dogs. Jeanette found Beth’s email reply was helpful, and that perhaps RCR could use her experience on policy revisions; said that the person involved had that morning indicated she would initiate a grievance. Mark, Sarah and Comfy added comment about list-serv access.

Redwood Community Radio – Board of Directors
Tues., Apr. 7, 2015 – 3:30 pm
Healy Sr. Ctr., Redway, CA
I.Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President.
II.Roll call:  MEMBERS’ REPS – President Siena Klein, Julia Minton, Cody “Comfy” Dillon. PROGRAMMERS’ REPS – Bud Rogers [arrived about 5], Secretary Jack Frybulous, Vice-president Dan Murphy. BOARD-APPOINTED – Christine Doyka, Mark Marchese. Station Manager Jeanette Todd (ex-officio).

IV.Approval of agenda. Jack added to New Business item E. – Reducing risk of violence at the station, and removed Closed Session.
Christine moved to approve the amended agenda, Cody seconded; unanimously approved.
V.Open time – Maureen Kane is tired of drug busts & car crashes, and asks for more good news, local & global. Emma Nation found that we serve one of the poorest counties in California, wants to hear programming that “targets the underprivileged”. / Working with Maureen on a mission to better ID the broadcast needs of our community. / Also on a positive news program. / Organizing a meeting for northern listeners. Betty Miller - Volunteer ‘91-‘04; reporter ‘93-‘98; member since ’91. Listening to news less and less, because less and less local, with items [e.g.] about Crescent City, Ukiah Valley. Last Wed and Fri “no local news at all.” Said KMUD is doing this to “expand the number of subscribers” and make [newer subscribers] feel that their community is being heard from. / Broadcasts feel inauthentic, sound intermittent and mechanical, and lack context. / It’s not possible to provide competent news coverage of this four-county area. “There are many ways programming could include and hear from other parts of the listening area without replacing the local news”. / For 20 years the news was produced by 1½ full-time [“4 days, 32 hrs/wk”] staffers. Station would save $30K/yr if reporters were paid $20/hr. / Asked that open, public discussion of Board, Staff, Volunteers and Listener/Members take place about the commitment to local news. / If local news is being abandoned, be upfront about it. Jeanette said Betty’s comments would be added to the news surveys, and reminded that this was the point of doing a survey. Dan suggested a “discussion over the airwaves”. Volunteer, Member Jama Chaplin [“past Board, Finance and Policy Com member”]. Mentioned Fitch funds, and expressed thanks for the list of expenditures (in packet); ADA work, doors, etc. Heating and A/C to be installed in Music Library [not approved]. If approved, Fitch funds would be spent, or nearly so. Congrats on passage of Fair Access to the Airwaves, hopes talk-show hosts have been informed. Importance of financial emergencies policy, a message from past Boards: be prepared. Past practice has been to borrow from supporters, (e.g., after the signal upgrade, and “two other times before that”). Said Policy calls for a lenders’ list, asks Treasurer to review and establish contact. Requested dispostion on following topic only: Proposed changes in Election policy. 2 suggestions: no ballots to be put in boxes in kitchen; pass motion tonight that this year’s elections are an experiment. Mark spoke in response to proposed changes in Election. [Also present: BR, Donna King.]
VI.Management report – Many things on compliance calendar will need extensions. All CPB deadlines will be late, so funds coming July or later. Will need extensions for 990 and other IRS-related docs. Next Tues. Strategic Plan discussion with Board and Staff, partially to resolve any misunderstandings over the plan. News survey results announced. / Biggest event of the year Spec! Spec!; business support $4K + 200 @ $100 tix sold. / Apr 25, Jack Flaws showing Prairie Home Companion at station. / On the last Friday of the drive, Mateel ticket packages for SAMF and ROTR prizes. Goal $85K. $20K already received! We earned $22K from the March mini-drive! No thank-you gifts made it a quick and easy drive. “For the record”: March is better for mini-drives than February; last year’s drive [2/14] brought in $18K. / May 2: Dazey Days Bar + Funk Carnival, hoping to bill it as the “Official Dazey Day’s After-Party”! / Mark asked about money coming in online [$250 during last 4-day drive]. / Block Party May 16; Bud’s got bands. SAMF 5/30, 31. Mickey Dulas Coffee coordinator. Table blitz, 12 minimum, although concerns about drawing Vols away fm working on Drive. / Trainings continue and always full. / Finished 2nd round Info brochure, and Bequest brochure. / New car donations materials are in. / Made list for Cody of station’s needs: Fitch, what’s approved, etc. / Stalemate on 2011 FCC enforcement hold. / Panorama over! DonorSnap. We should launch a campaign, apologize to members for how long it took, and how much we appreciate them. / Finances: leveled out, with a more dedicating fund-raising schedule. Biggest challenge: create new revenue streams, a procedure that should be easily explainable. Cash-flow snapshot. / Terri asked to stay until December. Mark Sternfield [mid-‘90s UW rep] was recognized, and asked about vendors and road closure for Block party. The road will again be closed, although hard to find enough volunteers to make that happen. Said that everyone is pushing sustaining membership, we should too. / Dan asked why Terri stayed; Jeanette said she was concerned to see KMUD through the fire-season. / Dan: New database means “let the reserve grow”!
VII.Discussion / questions for Management
 
VIII.Consent calendar
 
IX.Finance Com. report
X.Unfinished business
A. Rivendell Automation project – budget. Recommended by Finance. Simon will do 30-day trial; Cynthia and Terri will work with him on it. No money will be spent till after 30-day trial.
Dan moved to approve spending up to $7K on Rivendell, Jack seconded; unanimously approved.
Cody mentioned that $6K had been the original amount discussed. Jeanette pointed out that with the bad weather, we had to program a 12-hour block, missed station IDs.
B. Approval process re: Policy 2.4.1, Board committees – letter of intent. The Policy Com. decided to detract the policy that’d been put forth.
C. New policy 2.4.1 [as addressed above].
D. New policy 5.1.1.1 – Anti-violence – A form needs to be created before this policy will be re-submitted at the next Board meeting.
E. Election process stream-lining. Jack and Mark talked about this. Jama pointed out we should have a motion.
Jack moved that the Membership meeting be set for June 4, and that this year’s elections be held out of policy and by-laws. Christine seconded; unanimously approved.
F. Survey results re: News – committee assignment. Jeanette: Online survey? / Dan asked that the News Director do a presentation for Transition Com on what she got from the survey. Dan said that Terri reported this morning that ppl want more so-Hum-centric reporting, and happier news. Sarah commented that 200 responses out of 3000 surveys sent out is a pretty high rate of return. JT asked what are we hiring Terri’s replacement to do? Do a half-hour of news five times a week? Or be the News Director? Or be a part-anchor with a partner? The survey is helping us resolve this. JT says it’s not reasonable to ask busineses to underwrite us, while we won’t report on them. And we want to broadcast in other areas to show how media can do better; we are setting an example of what community radio can be. Sarah says a positive vibe is important: ignoring drug-busts, e.g., except where kids are affected, or that have a large environmental impact. That would minimize a lot of out-of-the-area reporting. Sarah and Siena agree that the survey results should be used to conduct the next one. Cody asked does the News have its own mission statement? (No.) Drug busts vs. the drug war. We need to balance entertaining, informing, and inspiring. JT said Transition will use the survey to figure out who to hire, and plan a community meeting to make decisions about how to hire the next person. The other part of the survey results would be really appropriate for the Membership meeting.
G. Strategic plan. Siena sent out a Kiley group doc. Marcy had recommended Kiley group in 2013. JT: Pick the best one, and apply for a grant. Dan said he liked the mission statements from Bend and WXXI.
 
XI.New business 
A. Confirm Sarah Scudder as Treasurer-elect (see item III)
B. Consider date / place Board-Staff retreat.
Jack moved we discuss this at Tuesday’s meeting, Dan seconded; unanimously approved.
C. On-site caretaker. Dan: Is it a good idea? Bud: build a tiny house in back. Jack asked that the legal (and personnel) issues be researched. Siena proposed that the Mateel and Beginnings be approached for info. Dan made a motion [he later withdrew] that the Board ask the Grounds Com to investigate this issue, and present the Board with more information, and possibly a proposal. Bud said he would be glad to follow up on county policies that deal with dangerous ppl. Cody moved to start an email thread asking what questions the Grounds Com. should ask regarding on-site caretaking; Jack seconded; unanimously approved.
D. Station manager evaluation results will be available a week before the next meeting. We’ll need a closed session at the start of our next meeting, and will relay to her our feedback. 
E. Reducing risk of violence at station. Dan: affecting a lot of Redway businesses. JT: We need to take back our front yard; when we start barricading the bldg instead of at the road, we’ve given up that territory. Consider solar gates with codes. Dan agrees, and reminded that late-night programmers have complained about this a long time. Jeanette: During the day, staff calls Sheriff. County mental health used to be called, but they have said they don’t have the staff. We can’t let visitors be endangered. Seed issue: Programmers aren’t sure who should be there; they do have the power to ask someone to leave. Dan suggested this as [ACTION] a topic for next Programmers’ meeting, and asked: Would a gate affect our ability to make good radio? JT said she left last night at 11 and homeless guy had been knocking on windows for an hour asking for stuff. Mark talked about motion lights. Jack: we’re not only blocking [name redacted]; we need to be seen doing something. Cody: neighborhood kids use the back-yard as a short-cut, we don’t want to lock them out; kids are our future. About a gate: the “problem people” are not driving in. Dan moved we direct the Grounds Com. to look into having access gates installed. Jack seconded; unanimously approved. Siena asked Jeanette what else we can do to reduce the risk of violence, who responded that County Mental Health had been asked to give a presentation to the staff, but CMH was unable to approve staff-time for this. Info about mental health has been shared with staff. Dan moved that Bud do more research on what can be done at the community level; Jack seconded. Unanimously approved. [Bud added he’d also talk to the Chamber of Commerce and Estelle.] Siena asked about the van abandoned in our lot; Jeanette said that BR accepted it from a homeless guy; Siena suggested a lien-sale. Jack suggested we not involve BR in getting rid of the car. Siena volunteered to find out about lien-sales. Jama reminded “before the Block Party”!
 
XII.Committee Reports
A.Programmers’ Reps. Jacks said that Jeanette had instigated quarterly meetings of Programmers, that we are scheduling a meeting for May (after the pledge drive). We’ll need to make an agenda including new meeting rules, and station IDs (that Programmers could use to identify each other).
B.Members’ Reps. Siena: also looking forward to new database. (Jeanette said she didn’t get the last letter sent to Members and was like, “C’mon!!”)
C.Community Advisory Boards. Emma will schedule a meeting of the Northern CAB after the Pledge Drive. 
D.Correspondence Secretary. Christine was asked to write County Mental Health, Julia told her that their office is in dis-array, and so no letter was written. Jack: a letter should still be written at least to show we are doing something, for documentation purposes. Bud: cc Board of Supervisors, and County Counsel. Write first draft, and we’ll provide feedback. / Dan: inform audio engineer Dave Smith that we’re working on this issue. [Christine will inform Dave of the Board’s progress in dealing with this issue.] Sarah said her dad works at the Arcata Night Shelter and will email him asking if he might talk to us. Bud said he would ask Paul Encimer – in his capacity as a founder of CHILL – to address the Board. Jama reminded me to ask Christine to write a thank-you letter to Nella for her database work. Jeanette added Dazey’s supply for gifts and support. Siena asked Christine ACTION to ask us monthly who needs to be thanked.
E.Development: Jack finished the Info brochure with significant last-minute input from Cody; Simon Frech also suggested helpful revisions. / Goal of 40 tables, but problem of less manpower for drive. / Eureka Natural Foods is providing us with $10 gift certificates for all new members. / Cannabis leaf logo to give the next generation 5 reasons to love KMUD. (No work on matchbooks now with fire season coming up!) Two Golden Arms for this drive: one for prize, one for a big donor. / New highway signs are to be ordered. / Mark mentioned Cody’s idea which JT put together: Wish List. Cody: What can we get thru grants, or thru special promotions? Accomplish goals a couple at a time. / Jeanette asked asked about the budget for Cuzzin Marks’ party. Dan explained that KMUD is asked to pay up to $1000 for food; Julia has taken care of the Bar. Dan will ask Mateel to partially waive some fees ($150 clean-up + $500 for Saturday rental). Sarah suggested a raffle. Dan says it’s more a memorial than a fund-raiser. JT suggested if it were annual, we should make it April so as to not be so close to the Block Party; (Marc’s birthday is first week in April). Bud, re: Block Party, bands: Gardner and Friends, Peter Childs, Three-Legged Dog, Marjo wilson Band from Covelo. Lengthy discussion on renting vs. buying tents.
F.Policy – talk of changes to Grievance panel policy, looking at “one-sided grievances”. Jeanette: the related anti-bullying policy changes are still being worked on; in cases where one party is unwilling to mediate, they could go to Grievance and still be heard and documented. Emma was recognized, and allowed to talk about ex parte, that both parties should be informed [they would be].
G.Mediation – A mediation was recently completed. Regular meeting in June. Jama asked if there would be an election for the seat to which Noel was appointed, or was her appointment permanent. Dan suggested asking Noel. Siena will put out a list of names and terms of members.
H.Emergency Preparedness. Cody: said we should have a policy that says we own the air-waves, in the event of martial law. Bud talked about the need for an independent mobile unit. Jeanette will send an email to ID members for this committee; Cody is willing to chair.
I.Management Evaluation.
J.Transition Com. – Met and talked about News Dept. May meet again next week. Siena asked about working toward minimizing the staff budget. Jeanette: it’s always the goal to streamline the budget. If we had a more constant staff, we’d have a more constant budget.
K.Elections.
L.Networking. Jack and Siena tabling in Mendocino Apr 29 – May 1.
 
M. Grounds. Dan: had a great work day, and grounds were cleaned up! Cody: Railings on both porches need adjustments. Dan: Power-pole over line has been pecked away.

V.Open time – Visitors: Simon Frech, Sarah Scudder. Simon expressed sadness there was no party for BR.
VI.Management report – The road will be closed for this year’s Block Party! Volunteers are needed for Summer Arts. Mateel has agreed to waive our SAMF/ROTR coffee booth fees, $2300. New bumper stickers may be on the way. Nella has completed her database-related work. Apr. 1 is the latest that Audited Financial Statements can go out. Hiring Com. being created to identify Terri Klemetson’s replacement.
VII.Discussion / questions for Management – Jack reminded the board about the costs and the work involved in closing the road. Talk about parking space for handicapped. Cody asked to get more info on each of the items listed there. Christine suggested tackling one per month, while Jeanette reminded us about finances.
 
VIII.Consent calendar
A. Fair Access to Airwaves – 2nd consideration. This item was removed from the consent calendar for discussion.
 
IX.Finance Com. report – Siena chaired the Feb. 17 meeting (see pp. 36-38).
X.Unfinished business
A. Automation project – Simon has submitted more info about this proposal (approx. cost $6200). Dan asked about down-the-road costs, and learning-curve. Julia said she wanted to make sure we’re on solid footing before voting to approve (and pointed out the lack of a balance sheet in this month’s packet). JT: Fitch fund contains $55K. JT asked Simon if this would be the project to fund over the next 3 years. Simon: hard question.
Dan moved to table, Jack seconded; Unanimously approved.
B. Database project – Nella has communicated that her end of this project is complete; the new db will allow greater access to staff and volunteers doing all kinds of mailings.
C. Cuzzin Marc budget – Mateel will donate hall, and would run the bar (in the event the hall-rental fee is waived); Babette will do kitchen for us; and door, sound, lights and band are free. Discussion of the cost to rent hall ($350) vs. paying it and running the bar. Arrange security. Bud volunteered for a tweener spot. Dan continues the discussion with Mateel staff tomorrow. 
D. Board / staff retreat – travel May 21-23 to KVMR not as a conference but as a retreat. $100 per person. Half the staff are willing to go, half willing to stay and keep station open. Dan, Julia and Mark can’t go. Bud was unsure; Cody is interested; Jack is going.
 
XI.New business
A. Board recruitment and communication – To be discussed at the Board self-retreat: exit-interviews with previous Board members, and supporting them in the creation of their own group; year-round recruitment of replacement Board members, etc.
B. Appoint Elections Com – Jack (as 2nd year Programmer Rep) volunteered to run Programmer elections (per policy). Mark volunteered to be Overseer. Siena might run Member elections.
C. Approval process re: Board committees – New policy 2.4.1 (p. 17) is an attempt to address the lack of documentation existing around how members join committees. Julia: committee chairs have appointed people; committees should still be allowed to comprise themselves; not do committee work at the Board level; and trust that committee chairs will do what’s required.
Dan moved to table, Jack seconded. No vote was taken on this motion.
D. Report survey results from Appreciation ballots – information is contained in the packet. Dan and Terri are working on news-related results.
E. Fair Access to Airwaves – see p. 15.
Jack moved to approve, Bud seconded; unanimously approved.
F. Appoint Richard Parrish to Northern CAB.
Dan moved to approve, Jack seconded; Unanimously approved.
G. Building access and key. Change alarm code.
Dan moved that JT create a key inventory, and change alarm code. Christine seconded. Unanimously approved.
H. Policy: anti-harassment, -bullying, -violence (p. 16). Cody suggested (and Jeanette had reported) that a form for complainants to submit needs to be produced. Jack wondered if this was a Board responsibility. Julia thought that situations with people who felt unsafe might not be appropriate for Mediation, but that in most extreme circumstances, people [with personal-safety concerns] could seek to go the Board, but that approaching the Station Manager [or] Mediation Com. are preferred first steps. On behalf of prospective complainants, Bud called for making potential pathways and parties clear, that would inform someone if they had violated a protocol. Cody pointed out the proposed Steps 1 and 2 (Submit complaint; and meet with Manager [or Board, when Manager is the subject of any complaint]) were contained within Step 3 (Follow Problem-Solving Procedure).
Jack moved to send 5.1.1.1 back to Policy for more work; unanimously approved.
I. Election process – suggesting that Policy have both Member and Programmer elections run at the same time (not a month apart). Jack asked Policy to ascertain what any negative fall-out from such a change might be. It seemed to be the Board’s consensus to send this back to Policy, although no motion was made.
 
Possible Treasurer-to-be Sarah Scudder was greeted and thanked for coming. Julia outlined for her Treasurer job duties: chairing the Finance Com., incl. preparing agendas; monthly Treasurer’s reports submitted to the Board [by the Treasurer, or anyone she delegates]; and overseeing the annual budget process (incl. a mid-year budget review). Jeanette added: attend Board meetings!
 
CLOSED SESSION – Personnel.
 
Bud moved to approve a transitional contingency fund up to $15K to be withdrawn from the Fitch Estate. Dan seconded.
Motion passed, 5-1. Yea: Bud, Christine, Dan, Jack, Mark. Nay: Comfy. Abstained: Julia.

Redwood Community Radio - Board of Directors
Tues., Feb. 3, 2015 – 3:30 pm
Healy Senior Center, Redway, CA
 
A note from the Secretary ~ Beginning with these minutes and from now on, language about motions will appear in a different font, so that this information (including how the Board voted) may be more quickly located. (You can download a pdf version of the original minutes, this text version does not support the different font feature.)
 
I.Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President.
II.Roll call:  MEMBERS’ REPS – President Siena Klein, Parliamentarian Cody “Comfy” Dillon. PROGRAMMERS’ REPS – Bud Rogers, Secretary Jack Frybulous, Vice-president Dan Murphy. Station Manager Jeanette Todd (ex-officio). Absent: Members’ Rep Julia Minton, Mark Marchese. Christine Doyka arrived at 4. Search to identify a Treasurer is ongoing.
III.Approval of January minutes. Jack moved to approve, Bud seconded. Unanimously approved (5 votes).
IV.Approval of agenda. Siena asked that Board Self-Evaluation Retreat be added to New Business. Jeanette asked that two items be added: 2015 Spectacular! Spectacular! [S!S!] budget, and responses to Open Time and to CAB reports. Jack moved to approve the amended agenda, Cody seconded. unanimously approved (5 votes).
V.Open time - Emily Hobelmann and Emma Nation present. Emma advocated creation of an anti-bullying policy. Jeanette replied briefly, in agreement. At Jeanette’s suggestion,
Jack moved that the Policy Com. be directed to add language regarding workplace bullying, violence, and harassment. Bud seconded. Unanimously approved (6 votes).
VI.Management report – Jeanette outlined her report, referring to information contained in the packet. Highlights included plans for the next Silent Drive letter; BoD appointments to Elections Com. in March; and a major tabling blitz planned for Apr – May.
VII.Discussion / questions for Management – Bud asked how one gets on (and expressed interest in joining) the Pledge Drive Com. Jeanette suggested submission of a letter of intent.
Dan moved that Policy be directed to look into how people get assigned to or approved for Committee work. Jack seconded. Motion approved, 5-0. Yea: Bud, Christine, Dan, Jack, Siena. Abstained: Cody.
 
VIII.Consent calendar
A. Fairness Doctrine – 1st consideration. Jack asked what issue had precipitated the addition of the language about talk show hosts answering callers off-air, and suggested that (except for this), he was ready to approve. Jeanette recalled a show where – because more than one caller had gone off on tangents – the sheriff had only had time to answer 3 questions, while the lines were lit up with other callers. Jeanette had sent it back for more work to Policy, esp. since several drafts had so recently appeared. Bud felt the language was unnecessary, that hosts already have this freedom. Cody felt that “language not being needed” wasn’t a good reason to postpone consideration.
Cody moved that we vote for approval as-is. Bud seconded. the motion passed, 4-2. Yea: Bud, Christine, Cody, Jack. Nay: Dan, Siena.
B. Programmers’ Agreement – 1st consideration.
Jack moved we approve the consent calendar; Christine seconded; approved, 4-1. Yea: Christine, Cody, Bud, Jack. Nay: Dan. Abstained: Siena.
 
IX.Finance Com. report – from Jan. 20 submitted for review. Will need to look again at budget for staff training. Jeanette will look into where other radio stations get their funding from.
X.Unfinished business
A. revise Management Eval procedure. Dan’s proposals were submitted to committee, but proposed revisions were rejected. Dan: We’ll continue with existing procedure. An evaluation form will be distributed to staff, and another one to Programmers, Volunteers, Members. Completion expected in April.
B. update: search for a Treasurer. Another candidate has declined, and Jeanette is working on another. Jack will follow up with someone he knows who works up Island Mountain way. Bud has also approached someone. Cody suggested filling 9th seat with anyone; Jack argued saving it for someone qualified to be treasurer.
C. streamlining Elections process. Dan read Marcy’s report aloud. Bud moved we direct Policy to streamline this process; Dan seconded. Unanimous.
D. Vice-President job description (neither policy nor a by-law). Jeanette thought overseeing CABs should be a Members’ Rep duty. Dan moved to approve; Bud seconded. Unanimous.
E. Update: database project – All data ready to go to Donor Snap! It’s hoped RCR will have a new db fully functional by the Spring drive.
 
XI.New business
A. Budget for Cuzzin Marc event, Apr 4 at the Mateel. Dan requested that KMUD fund the Kitchen and Bar, possibly lights, sound and hall rental. Michael Jacinto has been asked to MC. Babette will do kitchen. Bud moved to direct Dan to develop this idea, and present at next Board meeting. Christine seconded. Unanimously approved.
B. Rivendell Automation proposal. Dan and Bud expressed reservations: that the system might be mis-used, substituting for live DJs (Dan) or that it adds complexity (Bud). Jeanette agrees with Cynthia that we do need a system to replace our reliance on iTunes, and to get what we want from our library. Jack thought we should go forward but, with Cody, expressed concerns about paying for it. Ask Simon for alternative proposals, or a demonstration? Cody suggested a field-trip to a station using the system: customer reviews. Bud asked about hidden training and programming costs? Dan moved to ask Simon to look up alternatives and give us a demo; and (with language added by Siena), that the M. and P. Directors also provide feedback. Bud seconded. Unanimously approved.
C. Larry Bruckenstein is appointed to Grievance Com.
D. Policy on anti-harassment, -bullying, -violence: see Open Time.
E. Board retreat for Self-Evaluation. Siena presented 3 options: plan a retreat (possibly professionally facilitated), or respond to a form corresponding to BoD job descriptions; Christine opted for a retreat. Bud agreed, and proposed Team Building. Retreat to KVMR in May, in conjunction with (but separate from) an NFCB regional summit. Siena will develop or discover templates for Board evaluation. Bud asked to develop a proposal for a short team-building exercise. Christine will contact Hospice for availability; Bud will develop his proposal; Siena will work on an agenda.
F. 2015 S!S! budget – Jeanette: 2014 goal was to break even, but we lost money. Max. capacity was 160 meals. $8K most KMUD would be willing to put down in 2015 as start-up, that (producer) Jennifer Metz would cover upfront costs to ensure the show goes on. Producer’s fee: $3000 (waived if KMUD doesn’t make money), or 10% if the door brings in > $20K. Aim to sell 200 tickets, at $75 / $100 + 8 VIP tables. EPIC had initially been approached to partner with us but their schedule required them to scale back, while still offering us volunteer (incl. working the bar) and promo support! Humboldt Green Week has offered to make S!S! a kick-off event.
Bud moved that an $8K budget for S!S! 2015 be approved. Cody seconded; unanimously approved.
G. Responses to Open Time, CAB reports. President’s job to reply (or assign replies) to Open time participants. Siena would like CAB reports to be reviewed (then posted on the bulletin board) by Member Reps. Jeanette offered to respond to the CAB reports.
Dan moved that Member Reps liaise with CABs. Bud seconded. Unanimously approved.
 
XII.Committee Reports
A.Programmers’ Reps. Dan said that we Reps would better facilitate the next meeting, that some issues like Programmer IDs (Cynthia in favor) didn’t get discussed as a result.
B.Members’ Reps. Siena: nothing to report. Cody: vibes-checker and stacker needed. Dan asked about processing surveys. JT suggested that Programmer Reps look at News portion; Member Reps look at signal upgrade.

D.Correspondence Secretaries.
E.Development (see Manager’s report)
i.Pledge Drive
F.Policy – see report.
G.Mediation. No news.

Emma read a letter in which she stated she was “effectively an assistant manager at KMUD for three years;” and expressed interest in Policy, Mediation, Emergency Preparedness, Mgmt Eval, and Finance committees, and said she would attend as many Development meetings as she was able to. Emma was thanked for her willingness to get involved.
J.Transition. Jeanette: met with BR who asked for eight weeks of training, but agreed on four. March 3. Other jobs for her have been discussed.
K.Elections. Siena: Committee to be formed next month. Members are asked to consider signing up. (Naturally, any BoD member running would be ineligible.)
