7:35 p.m.            KUUF SERVICE DIRECTORY:  All.

A KUUF Service Directory could be accommodated on our website, or made available in hard copy.  Its purpose is to make members aware of the talents and services provided by our members for a fee, e.g., house sitting, massages, reflexology, house cleaning, photography, etc.  The benefits for vendors and prospective customers are many.  However, there are pros and cons (Please see form and guidelines).

(Action required:  Approval or disapproval to pursue a KUUF Service Directory).


The value of holding a Board Retreat early in the fiscal year cannot be underestimated.  Please come prepared with a list of dates when you can attend a day-long retreat in May and June.  We also need to agree upon a location and facilitation services.

(Action required:  A list of dates when we can all attend a Board Retreat in May or June, selection of our meeting site, and a decision re a facilitator).
