VII.Discussion / questions for Management
A. Policy 5.1.6 - Volunteer and Community Member Time Restrictions: 2nd consideration. KMUD recognizes that each individual brings a special skill set to his or her participation time within RCR. To keep RCR healthy, the Board of Directors seeks a broad base of representation from the communities it serves. Volunteers fulfill this need, and to avoid exhausting Volunteerism (burn out) Board Committee participation will be limited. The RCR Board of Directors encourages Volunteers to apply to join and participate in two Board Committees only. Additional consideration by the RCR Board of Directors will be made for Volunteers who are already serving on two Board Committees to additionally join Temporary Board Committees. RCR is in compliance with the annual CPB guidelines for open committee meetings. However, RCR reserves the right to limit participation by visitors, guests, community members, and may choose to address their comments or input at that time, or not.
B. Re: Policy on use of reserves, the Board endorses language created by the Finance Committee in its meetings on 20 May and 3 Jun, 2014: The Board shall maintain a Reserve Fund in its own bank account. A prudent Reserve for RCR would be at least $100,000. The Board shall work diligently to increase the Reserve to that level. The Board shall review the balance annually, by February. In order to use these funds, Management must submit a written proposal to the Board (including a repayment plan), and the Board must approve this proposal.
C. Policy 220.127.116.11 – RCR supports an annual 2% wage increase for all staff: 2nd consideration. This 2% annual cost of living wage increase will be built into the annual budget, which will be reviewed and approved by the Board. This wage adjustment cannot be revoked without valid, ethical, and sound reasoning, and the approval of both Board and staff. In addition, this policy and its intent cannot be removed from the annual budget in order to reduce expenses as a budget-balancing option.
