MINUTES
Redwood Community Radio – Board of Directors
Tues., Nov. 10, 2015 – 3:30
Redwood Playhouse, Garberville, CA
I.Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President
II.Roll call:  Members’ Reps – President Siena Klein, Cody Comfy Dillon. Programmers’ Reps – Secretary Jack Frybulous, Vice-president Dan Murphy, Jimmy Durchslag (arrived 3:36). Board-appointed – Christine Doyka (arrived 3:42), Mark Marchese. Station Manager Jeanette Todd. Absent: Maria Savage, Treasurer Sarah Scudder.
III.Approval of Oct. minutes. Siena moved to approve, Jack seconded; unanimously approved.
IV.Approval of agenda – Closed Session (personnel) added after New Business, and budget discussion added after Closed Session. Dan seconded; unanimously approved.
V.Open time - Jimmy Robinson was our sole visitor.
VI.Management report - All Board members must know what’s in the CPB Community Services Grant handout; one aspect that concerns JT is the relatively sophisticated records-keeping CPB requires of stations. $13,958 is in the Signal upgrade account; $39,770 in checking; $50K in reserve, and $3500 in a second reserve account. Suzanne Beers remains the executrix of the Fitch estate, and an accounting has been requested. Eric Kirk is said to have sent stuff twice before. 
VII.Discussion / questions for Management – Mark asked about other check-signers. Jeanette will put on CSAR that office staff had been experiencing serious email problems. 
 
VIII.Consent calendar
A. “Pledge Drive” is made a standing committee. Jack moved to approve this; Dan seconded. Unanimously approved.
B. The Board directs that Julia Minton’s name be substituted in the necessary places with that of Treasurer Sarah Scudder. Siena moved that we add Sarah, Jeanette Todd, Simon Frech, and Dan Murphy to the list of approved check-signers at the Community Credit Union of Southern Humboldt; Christine seconded. Unanimously approved.
IX.Finance Com. report – Jimmy: Oct shows $15K net income, and net of $16K for the year. We don’t believe our financial statements, because we know they don’t reflect reality, and asked JT to explain in more detail. Jeanette: many expenses are not recorded, a lot of money moved from Fitch to cover day-to-day expenses, and we don’t see that. Fundraising account not updated in more than 3 months, balance sheets not reflecting that. Coffee booth bills, and floors still unpaid for. Has to do withnot having enough time to balance accounts, concerned that when we’re not up-to-date and don’t have good numbers, seems a little ahead of ourselves to make budget for next year when this year’s budget figures aren’t in. Some underwriters haven’t been billed, money is in bank accounts, but not reflected in statements. Dian agrees that she can put in 4 hrs Tues and Fri, but a lot more time is needed. What does the Board want to see happen?
 
An additional accountant or bookkeeper is needed to help us get through this; possible candidates: Sarah, Taun Moody, the Beginnings bookkeeper, Erin Larsen. JT will ask Dian to suggest someone. Siena asked about CCUSH to come and talk to us again, to be brought up at next Finance meeting. 
X.Unfinished business
A. Strategic plan check-in – prioritizing items that came out of followup meeting, see pp 23 and 31. JT suggests each Board member takes responsibility of one event, from start to finish. Important to delegate. Reminder: get list of unpaid pledge payments. Dan asked next meeting on Strat plan, to which JT said if we could prioritize what’s on p. 31, we’ll be much closer to announcing a date for the next strat plan meeting with staff. JT will prioritize and assign items for further discussion. Comfy mentioned a program Sean showed him for long-range planning. Jim: thinks there was more there than can be done. His concern: too much. Strat plan is a wish list that needs to be narrowed down. Mark … Siena: we didn’t re-visit the progress of the Strat plan made in 2009, suggests place-holder in Board meetings’ agenda. So (again) Jeanette will tackle this and send out suggestions.
B. Issues fm policy: violence, syndication, uploading shows, financial emergencies.
Dan moved to table; Jack seconded. (This motion was later withdrawn.)
* violence still doesn’t have forms, see p. 27 of packet.
* syndication; JT and Comfy think more ppl need to be involved. Cody: not a priority now. Jim asked what’s the priority for use of our facilities? Doesn’t think it’s an issue. 
* uploading shows – see p. 28 of packet.
Jim moved to adopt the amendment to the Programmers’ Agreement as-is. Cody seconded; unanimously approved.
Prog reps will talk to  Cynthia, and the whole PA will be re-submitted in January.
* financial emergencies. I moved that “will” be substituted for “should”. Jimmy seconded. Unanimously approved. First 2 items stay with Policy.
C. Elections Com. – chair, timeline. I can’t be involved. Jim will run P election. Siena will guide Members’ election. Dan will do Mgmt Eval. Mark declares his intention to run for a Members’ seat. ACTIONS: Siena will ask Maria to join elections. Siena: a Mediation Com person (and Programmer) needs to be elected. Siena and Christine will look into Mediation Com.
 
XI.New business
A. Update compliance calendar. Dan will send us a revised version.
B. Meet in December? Dan points out the budget needs work. / Celebration
C. Continue to record Board meetings? Yes.
D. Board review of Agreements we make with sub Programmers – Note the comment at the bottom of p. 30. Jim said CC is able; Programmer reps would assist with the PDs how to handle situations. Cody suggests adding language like “for 3 weeks, or 3 shows” etc. Jimmy asks the PDs to draft the language they want, then P reps will present it to the Ps. Is there lang in the PA that subs must be reported to the PD? 
E. Hiring com update.
F. Board responses to communications / use of list-serv. Jimmy pointed out that I’d suggested Amy’s letter be replied to incl the list-serv. We empowered JT to do this. I asked if the person who expressed an interest in forming a Mendo CAB had been contacted. Siena said Anon Forest is the person’s name. Christine will write up draft replies.

David Barsamian

David Barsamian is the award-winning founder and director of Alternative Radio, the independent weekly audio series based in Boulder, Colorado, which is heard every Monday morning at 9 on KMUD.
One of America's most wide-ranging and respected independent journalists, David Barsamian has altered the media landscape with his radio programs and books with Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, Howard Zinn, Edward Said, Arundhati Roy, and others.
His most recent books are Power Systems with Noam Chomsky and Occupy the Economy with Richard Wolff. He is winner of the Media Education Award, the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, the Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation, and the 2014 Peacemaker of the Year Award from the Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center. The Institute for Alternative Journalism named him one of its Top Ten Media Heroes. 

This event is part of our Fall Pledge Drive, it is free, but please consider becoming a member. 
November 11th 2015 at the Beginnings Octagon in Briceland (link to mapDoors open at 5:30pm.

Dinner will be available for purchase:
Organic Chicken, pesto pasta salad and organic green salad
Roasted portobello mushrooms, beets and butternut squash with mashed potatoes and organic green salad, Sweets, wine, beer and cocktails will be available too. 

David will be talking on Ecocide: The War on Nature
“Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course. Human activities inflict harsh and often irreversible damage on the environment and on critical resources. If not checked, many of our current practices put at serious risk the future that we wish for human society and the plant and animal kingdoms, and may so alter the living world that it will be unable to sustain life in the manner that we know. Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about.”
Those words of warning were written in 1992 by some 1,700 scientists including more than 100 Nobel laureates. Here we are, more than two decades later still talking, still drilling and doing very little to protect our precious planet from an economic system that prioritizes profits over the well being of Earth. 
 
Gili Islands Gunung Rinjiani Lombok IndonesiaPicture three tiny tropical islands, fringed by white-sand beaches and coconut palms, sitting in a turquoise sea: the Gili Islands in Bali are a vision of paradise.  Bali is known the Land of the Gods. One most famous islands in Indonesia, Bali blends spectacular mountain scenery and beautiful beaches with warm, friendly people, a vibrant culture, and out of this world resorts.
 
 
It's not hard to understand the Gilis' unique appeal.  Serenity endures and a green consciousness is growing. Each island has its own special character. Trawangan (universally known as Gili T) is by far the most cosmopolitan, its bar and party scene vibrant, its accommodation and restaurants close to definitive tropical chic.  Gili Air has the strongest local character, and a perfect mix of buzz and languor.  Meno is simply a desert-island getaway.

What a year so far! We have many new inspiring programmers and volunteers, beautiful new floors throughout the radio station, and we’ve done so much successful fundraising!  KMUD’s success is because of you and your dedication to your community radio station!  Thank You!
 During our most recent pledge drive a new member began a trend. He said “I want to give $1 a day, that way every time I tune in; I know I gave a little for that day”. This made me think, would I give $1 a day? Absolutely! That’s just $365 a year, or $30 a month, and it’s pretty easy to set up $30 a month on my debit card. I may have to go without a bag of chips every day, but I will be completely filled up on KMUD! What about you? Why do you give? Would you give $1 a day to support community programming?
When you pledge your support this fall, we will sweeten the deal with a chance to win a historic adventure. One grand prize winner will travel to Bali, Indonesia.  Please see the back of this letter for full details!  And the prizes won’t end there!  Enter to win one of many gifts from generous local businesses!
Have you ever considered supporting KMUD as a Volunteer? KMUD is in need of On Air Engineers!  As an Engineer, you will be supporting the Local News, Public Affairs Programming, and much more! We need you! Our next Engineer & On-Air Training is October 11th at 11am. This training is free and open to all ages and skill levels.  Reserve your spot, at 923-2513 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

KMUD is a nonprofit that works hard for social change, we not only imagine a better more inclusive world, we create it!
