Mission Statement: Redwood Community Radio will encourage a communication center of

community through quality programming.

Attachment I

Closed Session Rules policy
[Deleted language is lined-out. New language is underlined.]

  1. Closed Session Rules
    09/16/97; 5/24/11

Closed sessions are held to assure confidentiality when discussing certain legal, financial,
or personnel issues.  The occasions when closed sessions are allowed are listed in “CPB
Certification Requirements for Station Grants Recipients” in the Board orientation
binder.  The Board may also meet in closed session when sitting as a tribunal in handling
matters referred to it by the Grievance Panel.  The public agenda for a Board meeting
shall state which of these types of issues will be addressed.  A closed session also may be
scheduled at any time during a Board meeting, should the need arise.
The Board may exclude the Station Manager from a closed session when its discussions
involve her or him, usually in the case of personnel issues.
The policy stated in this section applies also to meetings of Board committees and to the
Community Advisory Board.
The agenda for a closed session shall be created by the Executive Committee, and the
Vice President (or any officer delegated by the Committee) shall speak to all other Board
members in advance of announced at the opening of the a closed session to inform them
of the agenda.  The Executive Committee may invite a guest or guests to a closed session
in order to benefit the organization.  
The following protocol shall be used during each closed session:

  1. Read agenda.
  2. Read these ground rules:
     All discussion must relate to the agenda item(s) and will be held in
    confidence, except any portions the Board specifically decides to make
     Confidentiality does not mean that Board members may not, outside of the
    closed session, discuss what was said with each other or with others who
    were present.
     Remarks not germane to the agenda item shall be ruled as such by the
    presiding officer.  These are not subject to confidentiality restrictions, but
    Board members are reminded to serve the organization’s best interest.
     Any collective record made during this session shall be given to the
    President for safekeeping.  The Secretary will be told where such
    materials are filed.

Proposed agenda, July 12, 2022 meeting


After deliberations, the Board shall decide and the Secretary shall record what is
appropriate to share publicly, including language for the minutes of the meeting. 
Any documents provided to the Board and used in its closed-session deliberations
shall be maintained in the station manager’s office.  How each Board member
voted will not be shared unless the Board decides to share that information.  The
Board will also make plans for any needed follow-up actions or communications.

Attachment II
Check Signer Policy

RCR will authorize two board members as check signers in addition to the Station Manager.
There will also be another staff member authorized as a check signer.
Two people must sign all checks over $5000 and one of them must be a board member.
If the Station Manager and staff member signer are not available, two board members
will sign the check. The signers must verify that the expenditure has been approved by the
board. This policy is for budgeted and other necessary expenditures of RCR.
Atachment III
Independent Contractor Policy
All Independent Contractors will be given a clear contract stating their responsibilities
compensation and duration of the contract. The contract will be signed by the Station Manager
and the Independent Contractor prior to beginning work. All Independent Contractors will meet
the standards for California’s ABC test to qualify for working at KMUD.
