MINUTES
Redwood Community Radio Board of Directors
April 12, 2016, 3:30 pm
Healy Senior Center, Redway CA
 
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.

IX.Unfinished business

C. Syndication policy [previously removed from consideration].

II.Approval of Dec. and Jan. minutes was unanimous.
III.Approval of agenda. Jimmy moved that 1. procedures for Board decisions by email, and 2. Board members taking individual actions be added. Siena seconded. Unanimously approved.
IV.Open time – Rob Bier and Zack Gonzales were present.
V.Management report – JT points out that p. 30 in the packet (what’s legal in copyright law) is important reading for making policy. Station Activity Survey is also included. Public file will need to be digital by 2018. Proposal to hire SquareSpace to host our website will be forthcoming, probably in May; Syndey Morrone has offered to assist with implementation. Emergency Response 
Team has 3 facets: broadcast (how we would stay on-air in an emergency), the county’s vision, and the news room response; more on this soon. CPB non-compliance fines are listed. Amy Goodman performs Apr. 16, incl. a 40-person meet-and-greet prior to her lecture. Programming Directors are looking to revise with Programmer Reps the Programmers’ Agreement. Simon has asked for follow-up on a grant to get a new generator.
VI.Discussion, questions for Management – Jimmy offered comments on Dev’t Coordinator job description (p. 35) and differences between a Coordinator and Director; also asked if we can get health insurance for staff. Dan commented about May for Block Party, could it be in July, or coincide with a pledge drive. JT says it’s our birthday, and we should keep it close to the date.
 
VII.Consent calendar – Unanimously approved.
A. 2nd approval: Two changes are made to the section of Policy 2.3.5 [Board communications guidelines] called Meeting and Minutes:
 
i. This text, the entirety of ¶ 3, is deleted: Management shall arrange for an audio recording of the meeting, provide a copy to the Secretary within three days, and archive the original at the station for two years. Other Board members may also request a copy. Management will provide copies to the public upon request for $10 per copy.
 
ii. In ¶ 4, the phrase and/or the audio recording is also deleted. ¶ 4 reads: The Secretary shall take the best notes possible while participating fully in all discussions, read back motions as requested, and shall use those notes, others’ notes, and/or the audio recording to assist in producing accurate minutes. Documents approved by the Board will be included in their entirety in the minutes, or, long documents may be identified by date of draft.
 
B. Elections Committee appointments: Jimmy Durchslag will run Programmer elections; Maria will do Members election; Siena will be the overseer and do binders. 
 
VIII.Finance Com. report – Sarah: 2015 payroll taxes not yet incorporated into figures. 2016 budget shows a $400 deficit, but low-balling of fund-raising estimates nonetheless puts RCR in a good position. Q: Would the Board prefer a partial month that’s recent, or a whole month from a month ago. JT: would rather see what’s more up-to-date. Just received P&L for 2016. Jimmy pointed out: $121K profit from 2015 is incorrect, since 2016 grant revenue ($95K) was received in 2015. Also, all funds has been re-paid to Fitch and other funds. Net income for 2015 reported as just under $29K, but est. $20K is more accurate. Pacifica subscription (for Oct. through Sept.) was not billed till January, and that the bill has always arrived randomly; this does mean our 2015 surplus is $5K lower. We’re in the black! And look forward to being more solidly in the black. Jimmy: The budget shows a small break-even for 2016, but we believe the income is under-stated; 2015 fund-raising was surpassed by $20K; a 19-page report of 2015 profit and loss for all events is posted at the station.
 
IX.Unfinished business
A. Strategic plan, check-in: Board and Staff meeting next Tuesday. Sarah said she will meet with Jeanette to talk about funding aspects of the plan.
 
B. Update on security enhancements: property and people. Sarah asked for a list of names of people living close-by who are willing to come help with situations. JT says the parking lot is very dark at night, that we’ve been talking about this ever since she’s arrived, and re-iterates the need to light up the parking lot with tamper-proof lights. We got a quote for lighting up the entire property, vs. an underground cord to a pole. JT asked could the Board chase $4K to light up the front and put up a pole?
 
Jimmy pointed out the need to be strategic in approaching the community to fund specific projects. Sarah re-focused on the parking lot, and would feel comfortable leaving the rest of the building as-is, if we lit up the front. Dan: “and sealed the backyard”.
 
Sarah moved to approve $7500 from New Reserve, and from the Music Library account, to pay for lights in the parking lot and front of building. Jack seconded. Unanimously approved.
 
Cody will call Jim Truitt. Jeanette will call PGE. Cody suggested a Building and Grounds meeting. Maria will talk to David Katz. Dan will talk to Cynthia about the list of people to call to deal with situations, and will bring up at the Programmers’ Meeting (Feb. 20) training for those people.
 
X.New business
A. Procedures for Board decisions by email – all agree that it is important to be able to distinguish between requests for information and requests for action. Board members’ gathering information does not and should never require prior approval.
 
B. Board members taking individual actions: while not meaning to signal that individual initiative in getting balls rolling is a bad thing, it is the Board’s strong consensus that it’s best when all Board members take potentially significant actions under the umbrellas of the committees with which they are involved. Grave concerns were expressed about Board members representing themselves as Board members to representatives of other entities.
 
 
XI.Committee Reports
A.Programmers’ Reps – Next Programmers’ meeting: Sat., Feb. 20. Jimmy will do promo, Jack will email the Ps agenda, Dan will make signs for station, incl. that you are required to attend at least one event, etc. JT add to agenda participate in drives; reminder of one meeting a year, enforcement. Security. Agreement being updated: no uploading of shows.
B.Members’ Reps – Siena: a member requested that by-laws be updated on the website. 
C.Community Advisory Boards. Emma has set up a meeting. Jeanette asked if there was a response required to the letter the Board sent Emma. Dan asks about re-invigorating a central CAB. Siena: we are working at establishing a coastal CAB.
D.Correspondence Secretary – Christine.
E.Development – Siena. Submitted notes from the Jan. 19 meeting. Floor space at Mateel: 300 + 50 on the mezzanine. Discussion of breaking down the stage, and putting screen(s) outside. 300 @ $50 is break-even. Meet and greet before she speaks for 40: the first forty to put up $1000? Jeanette asked what folks here would pay: many said 50 max, Sarah said 100 with dinner. Our cost is ~ $12K. Jeanette is on top of getting a calendar for Development. JT was reimbursed $22K for fund-raising expenses last year!
F.Pledge Drive [was made a standing committee 11/15] – Jimmy D. Start Tues., Apr. 12 through Tues., the 26th. Everyone to write a promo for giving early, and ending drive early if we reach our goal. Jack will write a script for video production. Call meeting with Ruby, Bridget, Nate, Brittany.
G.Policy – Cody. Meeting next week, didn’t meet last month. Need to start working on getting old policies updated into manual.
H.Building & Grounds – Dan and Cody. Dan will do a promo to recruit for this committee. Mention in the promo a work date. Sealing off the backyard. JT: working to get a storage container.
I.Mediation – Christine. None, but Siena says a meeting is needed. Christine will call for a meeting. JT: A Programmer is requesting a grievance hearing, and is hoping for an official recommendation. But maybe it’s not complicated enough for Grievance? Or that it’s too difficult to get the GP together?
J.Emergency Preparedness – Jeanette. Bringing all the groups working independently together: what county expects from us in an emergency, what we intend to do to have the correct components, and on-air staff is prepared. Next meeting? Get a studio-transmitter link, but needs line-of-sight to the Mud and to Pratt Mtn.
K.Management Evaluation – Dan. Jimmy, Peter Ryce, Angela Zane, Christine. Report coming on Apr. 1. Peter’s writing a couple of questions. Jeanette will complete a self-evaluation. Discussion of appropriateness of getting feedback from listeners, and movement away from annual reviews.
L.Hiring – Jeanette, Christine and Dan. Shanin? Next Wed at 1.
M.Elections – Siena and Jimmy. Rob our only Member running. 2 candidates for Programmer election. Inform membership no election. Noel would retain her appointed seat one more year. Margaret Lewis is 2nd candidate for 2nd seat. No election for either Mediation or Members.
N.Networking – Jack.

More about Jeno

http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/jeno/biography

Fueled by an enigmatic mystique, Jenö has remained one of San Francisco’s most beloved and sought after DJs for over two decades. Developing a passionate love for music from an early age he spent several years as a punk musician & songwriter, before discovering djing and falling into the vibrant London warehouse party scene of the mid 80s. Once Acid House fever hit the UK, Jenö never looked back, becoming known for his heady Whoosh parties, and his involvement in the early days of the notorious Tonka Sound System.

 

Inspired by Tonka’s cheeky f**k the rules attitude, and in search of a more psychedelic groove, Jenö, along with his British cohorts Garth, Markie & Thomas headed to San Francisco in the early 90s. This was the beginning of the now world renowned Wicked Crew, who were instrumental in firing up the SF dance music scene with their now legendary “Full Moon” parties. These wild & free outdoor gatherings were the foundation for an eclectic and soulful underground dance scene, and the driving force of the growing rave community on the West Coast.

By the mid 90s, Jenö‘s musical talents and commitment to the dance floor had helped inspire and define a new “San Francisco sound,” bringing international attention to the city’s burgeoning dance music scene. With all eyes on San Francisco, DMC sought out Jenö’s talents for a mix on their prestigious CD series “United DJs of America.” Joining the ranks of legends Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Little Louie Vega and Doc Martin, he put together a mix of fresh local music and classic house sounds that helped put San Francisco firmly on the dance music map.

 

In 1995, he and the Wicked Crew took things to the next level, importing a custom made Tony Andrews designed Turbosound system from the UK. With Wicked very much in demand there was nothing else to do but hit the road, piling into a beautifully restored 1947 Grayhound bus with their own band of merry pranksters, delivering their soulful psychedelic sounds with a rock’n’roll attitude that took the U.S by storm. The touring continued through the late 90s, including some unforgettable stops at Burning Man, Reggae on the River, and even a Jane’s Addiction concert in 2001.

As the new millennium approached, Jenö took his talents to the studio and began producing his own unique take on dance music. He met all expectations with several remixes on fellow Wicked DJ Garth’s Greyhound label, including the internationally acclaimed “Stormy Weather” remix of Rocket’s “People.” This was followed by remixes on Cheeky, Turnaround Sound, NRK & others. Jenö’s production talents aren’t limited to the dance floor, having worked on some dark brooding indie music in recent years, and currently producing live acid house for his monthly “Cult of the Acid House” party.

In 2004, Wicked disbanded after 13 years of amazing collaboration. Undeterred, Jenö and Garth have kept the spirit alive with their regular Back2Back appearances up and down the West Coast; a fun loving and boundary pushing musical romp through the last 40 years of dance music. In 2011, Wicked reformed with a “Twenty Years of Disco Glory,” reunion tour encompassing 13 cities across the country. The success of the tour has put a vital missing piece back into the global dance community.

Jenö’s mythical mixing talents have translated far and wide with a diverse international cult following. He has demonstrated these talents on the decks in the premier clubs across the globe, including the legendary Twilo in NYC, The End, Fabric & Ministry of Sound in London, Unit in Tokyo and the Rex Club in Paris. Jenö continues to perform & present music with a unique and psychedelic perspective, djing regularly again across the US, as well as hosting his own musically mischievous cult radio show – Noise from the Void, broadcast bi-monthly with the changing cycle from Full Moon & New Moon.

programmers’ reps
Secretary Jack Frybulous, President Dan Murphy, Jimmy Durchslag (arr. 3:59)
station manager

Treasurer Sarah Scudder, Vice-president Siena Klein, Maria Savage
II.Approval of November minutes – postponed.
III.Approval of agenda – unanimously approved.
IV.Open time – Bill Telnes and Jama Chaplin addressed the Board; Zack Gonzales was also present. During the 16 minutes allotted to Bill, he spoke about his having been indefinitely barred from the station. Jeanette clarified that, if he had radio business, he could be at the station during business hours. Jama Chaplin said that FCC forms 316 and 323-E had not been filed, and requested a disposition; JT explained they were not yet required to be submitted.
V.Management report – Amidst a significant staff turnover, Jeanette was pleased to announce that the Hiring Committee had been unanimous in its recommendation to hire co-news directors Sydney Morrone and Isabella Vanderheiden. Our first CPB grant money arrived, and financially RCR is getting back on its feet. This reserve (called the Fitch Reserve) now has $3K, in addition to a separate reserve fund (now named the Mapes Reserve), which contains $50K. 
VI.Discussion / questions for Management – Jimmy asked if we had repaid bequest funds that we’d spent, and getting clear information about such issues has been exacerbated by the unavailability due to pressing health issues of a key provider of financial data. Jimmy clarified that the Reserve is separate from the Music Library (aka Fitch) account, and that we are aiming to replace $38K. The last drive brought in $99K (incl. $32K in the Silent Drive), for which we paid $1200 to coordinators, and (only) $56 in food over 16 days. Some Board members may start making phone calls shortly to encourage those who’ve pledged to pay. Jack thanked Jeanette for getting the Donor Snap database up and running (which allowed us to call and solicit additional pledges from past donors), but she again reminded us that Nella and Beth deserve most of the credit.
 
Five of the six board members were in favor of adding a Closed Session to discuss personnel and hiring issues.
 
VII.Consent calendar
 
VIII.Finance Com. Report – Increasing underwriting revenue is hard because the database is so shot, even bills are hard to do. Jan. 2017 target for all things. Jimmy moved the budget be accepted; I seconded. Jimmy had questions about JT getting paid (and working) less, but a motion to approve the budget with three changes – sub revenue down $10K, underwriting down $10K, adding $12K to transition budget – was unanimously approved.
 
IX.Closed session – Personnel
X.Unfinished business
A. Celebration Appreciation
(a) logistics, planning for: Band needed. Last year’s budget (with 260 people in attendance) was $2K, which traditionally is mostly spent on food, as beer and wine usually comes to us no cost. Admittance will be discussed at Development. Christine moved we authorize JT to spend up to $3K, unanimously approved.
(b) revising ballot: 2160 ballots will be sent out next week.
B. Members’ Meeting, promotion of. No lengthy discussion.
C. Strategic plan check-in. Tabled.
D. Budget check-in (done)
E. Mediation Committee, status: Maria needs to be replaced. Jama pointed out that Policy calls for two Programmer and Volunteer reps to be elected.
F. Elections Committee, status: Jimmy will see that reminders are put in Programmer boxes, and signs put up at station. 
G. Hiring Committee, update: The committee comprises Jeanette, Maria, Christine, Dan and Shahine (formerly Marcy). Brittany Hutcherson has been hired as Admin Assistant, and is working out really well. A job description for the Development Director will be ready in January.
H. Policy Committee, forms for reporting violence: Jimmy moved to approve 2.3.5 [“not share board recordings”], Dan seconded. 2nd approval for next meeting. Unanimously approved.

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.
