Moving on,
Liz has typed up the House manager speech, which will be e-mailed to Dean Inman and given in hard copy form to Phil O'Hara…

Seth and Alix are rewriting the Constitution…

Concerning the email list usage, etc:
- There will only be one pw e-mail a week unless the issue is pressing and decided by the board to be so
- In the Miranda Rights for the Upstairs Space, any users of the upstairs Space will know that they have the opportunity of advertising their event on the pw e-mail newsletter if request is received before the day the e-mail normally goes out - which is a Monday this semester…
- The e-mail will be divided into a table of Contents so-to-speak, so people know where to look…
- non-PW events will be included on a case by case basis…

In terms of board participation,
we have gotten so much done this semester and we can't start slacking now, especially with new board members on the horizon - not only does a lot still need to get done (like the amount of Upstairs Space shows that need to be monitored), but we should also set a good example for new board members as to how we have made this board pro-active and how it should continue to be pro-active… 2 issues came up at the past meeting (only half the board was there) that will be brought up next weekend…
- Understanding that pressing situations come up, how much flexibility should a board member have not to attend meetings without officially taking a leave from the board…
-Should a board member who has not consistently been to meetings be allowed to vote in decision meetings…

The issues that stemmed this discussion were specifically monitoring for Upstairs Space shows, and other responsibilities that become a burden to the few that do come to meetings…

Also, please e-mail the board if you are not coming. It is not enough to just tell someone. Then, for example, the secretary can look at the agenda and say “Hey, strike is this weekend, I know you can't come to the meeting but can you sign up for something?”

We are a great group of people and a great board. Let's keep it great.

love, maria
