WAVE Board Meeting - Agenda and Minutes

Thursday, August 2, 2018

11 am – Noon

Agenda (Amended)

  1. Initial Recommendations of WAVE By-laws Review Group
    1. By-Law Compliance Issues
      1. To comply with by-laws provision that members elect Board of Directors, designate fall meeting as Annual Meeting.
        1. Currently, the Annual Meeting is held in January. Dues notices go out in January, the beginning of our fiscal year.  Since only voting members (delegates from villages) vote and few villages have paid dues in January, only those few villages are eligible to vote.  Thus either those few eligible vote, or WAVE allows those who haven’t paid dues to vote.
        2. Moving the Annual Meeting that is required in the By-Laws, to a fall general meeting, would maximize participation of voting villages. It would lessen the probability of non-compliance with our by-law provision that member villages only are eligible to vote for Board members.
    2. Schedule an in-person meeting prior to October 1 meeting to review changes to by-laws, policies and other recommendations of the by-law review committee
  2. October 1 Meeting in DC
    1. Meeting will be at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Foggy Bottom Village, , 2430 K Street, NW
    2. Discussion of Agenda
      1. Panel: Lessons Learned - Peg
      2. Request by IONA staffer Susan Messina to discuss outreach to LGBTQ community (15 minutes)
        1. Board was surveyed about this request and favored it as agenda item
      3. Request from Mary Proctor of Capitol Hill Village to talk about DC villages engagement in advocacy activities
  3. New Business
