  • Discussion as to how we do this.  

Farzaana What constitutes a MIGS?, how to manage?

Why do we have a board if they are not trusted to carry out business of board? Al

Why are we open board with non board members commenting during meetings 

minutes should be on website and then voted on by a quorum

Paul, there is a time exigent clause that states if things need to be done and we dont have quorum, bylaws say we can move things forward with this clause. community cant always act upon things in a timely manner.  

Bill - other boards he serves on, non board members sit outside of board’s table, cannot talk during meeting until they are called upon to contribute to meetings. 

Chad be productive and include more people
