This is an especially busy, important time at KUUF. For the past couple of years, Nancy, Paul and Ellen have held mostly weekly executive phone conferences to discuss a lot of KUUF issues. Keeping in mind that all three go off the Board in April 2018, we need to do some succession planning. Will a new executive team emerge, or will it be better to hold two meetings a month, one official meeting and one working meeting?
(Action required: Decision on whether to hold two Board meetings a month).
