Approval of Agenda: Julia moves to approve the Agenda. Marcy seconds. Agenda approved unanimously.
Open Time: Speakers will be assigned an amount of time not to exceed 5 minutes
Jama Chaplin- Jama wants to urge Maria to say something. Last time she brought up the by-laws to the Board that call for equal access to the airwaves. Kerry wants to put out the word for a volunteer or two to make coffee. Our PSA policy suggests that people who can use PSAs are non-profits, and people that have a personal emergency. The PSA pollcy needs to be revised to say that the non-profits do not have to be incorporated.
Rohn Jennings- Rohn wants to see the contract with CPB regarding the transmitters. He heard that All Sides Now was used for a list of thank yous to an event, and he was wondering if that was true.
Siena- Thank you.
Maria Savage- Maria is interested in being on the Board. Jama was the one who suggested it to her. She is currently a volunteer and helps with stories on the news. She loves the station, and has lived here for 30 years. Her background is in newspapers and magazines. She is a liberal supporter of everything. She doesn't know if she is qualified to be on the Board, but she is here to listen today. She feels like KMUD is the most welcoming and inclusive of all the organizations she has worked with, and she says thank you.

Simon is working on the problems with signal quality. He may have to hire expert advise to work out the remaining bugs.
