Meeting Minutes for  September 21, 2017

I.  Call to order at 6:21 PM by President Chloe Karl.

II.    Board Members Present:Nick Baker, Frank Dollosso, Chloe Karl, Ron Green, Olga Martin-Steele
Guests:  Dennis “Doc” Bilardi, Jake Jacobson, Milos Luebner, Alan   Fletcher

III.  Approval of Minutes — The minutes from the last regular meeting on 8/17/17 were approved as written.

IV.  Treasurer’s Report — Olga Matin-Steele. Current balance in checking is $3,762.46 and savings is $4,711.50.  There is an issue with the Credit Union accounts after the merger with another bank.  Martin-Steele reported on this and recommended our accounts be transferred back to Umpqua Bank. Nick Baker made amotion to go ahead with this transfer. Ron Green seconded. It passed unanimously.

V.  General Manager’s Report—Weiss was not present. Karl gave his report.     
    1.        Tech Report – One STL dump this month during Denim Alley was quickly resolved.  No drop-outs this past month.  Mic 2 and possibly the mic 2 module at the board have been problematic the past few weeks.  I installed a new cable on Tuesday – it seems better, but  “wait and see” is the strategy. Some programmers have been detaching the mic cables at the interview table to send high-level signals to the board (like amplifiers).  This can be damaging to the modules, and anyone who does this will be responsible for paying for the damaged equipment(modules are several hundred dollars and hard to find) as well as possible suspension or loss of program.      
    2.       Programming – The Garden and Homeschooling shows premiered lastweek. Devon is also now a part of Wordweavers on a once-a-month or so basis. Barron is now doing the 8-10pm Sat slot.  There are plans in the works to go all night (or part of Sat night) in the near future replacing his overnight Saturday show.      
    3.       There has been a complaint from a community member about libelous comments made on “The Giving Tree”.  That situation is in the midst of being resolved.     
    4.    The Harvest Fund Drive is scheduled for Saturday, November 11.

VI.  Committee Reports:    
    A. Underwriting—Chloe Karl read Susan Lozano’s report. We have the sameunderwriters as last report. We took in $950 in July for Underwriting.    
    B. Website— Alan Fletcher reported no changes. He plans to do a schedule update on the website.    
    C. Events— Chloe reported that plans are underway for a concert/dance fundraiser for the week end of November 18. They have not been firmed up at this time.    
    D.  By-Laws Working Group—Ron Green reported that the next meeting of the bylaws working group will be October 30, at which time he hopes they will finalize their recommendation to the Board.

VII.   Old Business    
    A.  Programmer’ Protocol in Studio— Martin-Steele presented “PLEASE RESPECT RECORDING STUDIO  PROTOCOLS,” to be posted in KPFZ’s On-Air studio. These were reviewed  and revised with much discussion.  Baker made a motion to approve, Green seconded and it passed unanimously.    
    B.   Emergency Response Report— Jake reported he is working on getting answers to licensing questions from the Sheriff.

VIII. New Business     
    A. Community Liason: This is volunteer position has been recommended by Weiss. There was also discussion of a Volunteer Coordinator position.    
    B.  Program Duty Officers: The board briefly talked about having each board member responsible for one day a week, if last minute program scheduling is needed. Andy has been taking on this role.     
    C.  Programmer Meeting—“Doc” Bilardi agree to work on setting a date(s) for a Programmer Meeting and inviting programmers to get together. This would allow the programmers to get to know one another and to provide input to the station.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:20pm.

Next meeting will be Thursday 10/19/17 @ 6:15pm at the station.
