Durchslag moved approval.  Dillon seconded.  Passed unanimously.
Consent Calendar
Board Grievance Policy, Addition to 5.1.1:
The Board may initiate a grievance and seek mediation at its own determination.  The President shall  represent the Board and Redwood Community Radio in any mediation or other, related proceedings.
Bier moved that the policy change be sent to the Policy Committee for further consideration.  Murphy seconded.  Bier reported that Bob Froelich had met with Dillon, Murphy, Todd and himself, asserting, among other things, that the proposed policy would turn the existing problem-solving process on its head.  If so, this would be an unintended result.  Passed unanimously.

Dan Murphy called the meeting to order, reading the mission and vision statements.  Sarah Scudder was appointed stacker.
 
Present: Board-Appointed Representatives: Christine Doyka, Mark Marchese, Treasurer Sarah Scudder
Members’ Representatives:  Cody “Comfy” Dillon, Vice President Siena Klein, Maria Savage
Programmers’ Representatives:  Secretary Jack Frybulous, President Dan Murphy
 
Station Manager Jeanette Todd
 
Absent:  Programmer Representative Jimmy Durschlag
 
Approval of March minutes
The March minutes were approved by unanimous vote.
Approval of agenda
Murphy moved to amend the agenda by adding the seating of new members next, followed by discussion of the appointed representative seat and appointment of officers.  Passed unanimously.  Todd asked Board to strike the syndication and policy manual items from Unfinished Business, noting that the Policy Committee had not met to consider either item.  Agenda, with changes, passed unanimously.
Seating of new directors
Murphy thanked Marchese, Klein and Frybulous for their service to RCR.  Member Representative Rob Bier and Programmer Representative Zack Doopi Gonzales took their seats for three-year terms.  Appointment to the open seat was deferred to the May meeting, with Mark Marchese currently the only candidate for the position.  The following were tentatively appointed officers by unanimous votes, confirmation of that to come at the Board retreat:  President, Dan Murphy; Vice President, Jimmy Durschlag; Treasurer, Sarah Scudder; Secretary, Rob Bier.
Open time 
Jama Chaplin challenged a comment made by Frybulous at the March meeting to the effect that new motions could be made at any time.  She pointed out that this would defeat the whole idea of an agenda, calling that a social contract with the membership that could only be altered by action of the full Board.  Murphy acknowledged the error.
Management report
Todd reported that the pledge drive was off to a good start, due in part to overlapping the last day of the silent drive with the first day of the on-air drive.  She said tickets for the Amy Goodman event were moving slowly, although the meet-and-greet was doing well.  Todd reiterated her concern about the large amount of staff time it is taking to implement Rivendell, suggesting that it may be necessary to reconsider the worth of the entire project.  She also repeated the need for Board packet items to be completed and submitted to her earlier.  
Finance Committee report
Scudder noted that personnel expenses are running ahead of budget for several reasons, notably due to the staff time being expended on Rivendell.  She said that topic would be taken up at the April Finance Committee meeting.  Although due Jan. 1, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting payment actually arrived in November and was partially expended before the end of the year.  That was repaid, but the CPB figure shown for Jan. 1, 2016 may not be accurate.  If so, it will be corrected.  Bookkeeper Dian Griffin needs to provide better, more timely reporting to Scudder and the Board.  Murphy said those issues could be addressed in the impending new contract with Griffin.  Dillon suggested finding volunteer help for her.  Scudder noted that Harry Jasper, former administrator at Joseph Phelps Community Hospital, has expressed a willingness to assist with finances.
Unfinished business
Security lighting.  David Katz has volunteered to provide lights, similar to those he has installed at Solar Suites, across the street from KMUD.  The grounds committee will take up particulars of the work at its May meeting.
Mural.  Chad has been delayed by personal affairs, but is enthusiastic about the project and will provide a drawing of his proposed design, perhaps by the May Board meeting.
New business
CABs and Face Book.  The northern Community Advisory Board has created its own Face Book page.  The consensus from discussion was that this is not desirable; it divides RCR’s interests and public presence.  Northern chair Emma Nation will be asked to removed the KMUE page and do all posting to the existing FB page.
