Elections were held through an anonymous ballot.

Some officer positions were rearranged and positions were finalized.

The remainder of the meeting time was reviewing the publication. 

The first publication has already been printed and was passed out at the meeting.

Goals for the next publication and any small details to take note of were established through the review of the first publication


Board Member Attendance

Board member attendance will be revised. As of now, please continue to follow these guidelines:

Board members are allowed to miss 3 consecutive board meetings.

If you are not going to be present at the meeting, you must email ahead of time with a legitimate reason, which, if the reason makes  sense, will excuse you.

If you are not present at the meeting, the meeting minutes must be viewed. Then you must offer opinions about the meeting.

For far away members, VIAN is considering using webcams to communicate.

If you have to leave early, you must stay for a minimum of 30 minutes.

If members miss 3 or more consecutive meetings, there will be chances to redeem themselves and to become a board member again.

Board members that are located in a different county are allowed an exception, but attendance is still important.


The next meeting is on 10/23/2016 (Sunday) at IvyMax as usual.
With no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
