Board Reports by Carolyn Clark

November meeting, 11.12.19

Jerry Wagnon called the meeting to order at 6:30 pm.

Kathy Wheeler presented the Sacred Space Team report. The recent meeting with the architect and the acoustical engineer was very successful. We approved the contract with the acoustical company and it was signed by Jerry Wagnon. Kathy Wheeler reported that the pesticide report on the new property came back clear, and also detailed the various bills that had been paid for the predesign phase. We approved the expenditure of $50,000 for expenses related to the new property by the Sacred Space Team during the design phase.

The rental lease with Hillel has been renewed for another year at the same rate as last year, to begin 1 January 2020.

We discussed the Capital Fund Drive with the Appelt match of $50,000 and approved the formation of an ad hoc committee to plan and execute this drive, to include establishing a timeline and deciding on various means of promotion to the congregation. Nancy Granovsky and Rob McGeachin both agreed to serve on this committee and to recruit other interested people for this project.

We discussed again the possible need for a Second Ask and decided at this point that one is not needed. In lieu of another Service Auction we discussed having a fund drive that would be on a smaller scale, perhaps hosting a Chili Dinner with a silent auction of member services. Details are yet to be developed.

It was agreed that we subscribe to a Zoom Plan that will enable us to meet remotely when needed. The cost is $14.95 a month.

We adjourned at 8:20 pm and moved into Executive Session.
