New Wave Corporation
08/19/14 Meeting Minutes
Meeting called to order at 7:04pm by John Betz
Present were John Betz, Phillip Rabbit, Brett Norton, Peter Anger, Atish Sen, John, Kay, James Oxford, Ellen Schlie and Connie Hyman.
Previous meetings minutes were approved, with the addition of noting the date of the meeting, who called it to order, and who took the minutes.
Much of the meeting revolved around KOPN’s schedule over the course of the rest of the year. Which is as follows:
Discussion was had about the possibility of finding a new auditor and making a budget. The ending of the fiscal year September 30th would make these tasks ideal around this time. The station is under no pressure to change auditors and has not had a budget for some time, but both were looked at as useful endeavors.
Also mentioned was the need to look ahead regarding the nomination of new board members for the following year. Last year’s ballot and mailing was late enough to require mostly email and at-the- meeting votes. Whilst there are a number of months before the issue will be urgent it was suggested to ask around. Board members often provide extra volunteering during crucial points for KOPN’s operations. There is also nothing preventing a New Wave Corporation board from making terrible decisions save the discretion of the individual members, so keeping a board that is both active and committed to KOPN’s mission statement is an important task.
Meeting ended at 8:25pm
