III.      Approval of Minutes –The minutes from the last regular meeting on 5/21/20 approved.

IV.      Treasurer’s Report – Actor reports that we have a current balance of $27,000.  Our monthly expenses are about $4,400 but that should be reduced next month because we switched to a less expensive phone service.  Once we transfer our credit card service our monthly expenses will be reduced some more.  Out of the money we received for the cancelled MoonAlice concert, $400 was refunded, $1,800 was donated and $1,100 was converted to underwriting.  We received a grant from PG&E of $3,600 for generators to run the station in case of a power shut down.  We also received $250.00 from a Go Fund Me account set up for the stutter fund. 

V.       General Manager’s Report –   a. Andy reported there are 21 shifts at the station running the Board.  Andy and Chloe are doing 6 shifts each.  There are many programmers who do not know how to run the board.  This is why it is so important to continue to be vigilant in keeping the studio COVID free.  Andy is also looking into a 2nd studio we can broadcast from if needed.  This could be the Production studio as long as it is kept totally separate from the studio.  There are expenses to prepare 2nd broadcasting studio.  John Saare made a motion to authorize expenses up to $2,000.  Krones 2nd.  Passes.  

VI.      Committee Reports: 

a. Program Committee – Karl reported.  a. Linda Kelly is a new member to the committee along with 2 other people who are listeners.  b. Everyone who is at the board need to bring in their own microphone. c.  A live performance of Romeo and Juliet will be on the air on July 25 from 7-9:30 pm. d.   There was discussion about how to keep programmers updated about the status of the station.  Chloe will send out emails to programmers to update them.  

b. Underwriting – We have several renewals and new underwriters.  Krones requested to get scripts or recordings of underwriter announcements so she can add it to her prerecorded show.       

c. Tech Report – John Saare reported we will be forwarding email to gmail.  Old email will remain as well.
