Workgroup Structure Revisions: Review the workgroup changes. Tim proposed eliminating Sustainability and Donor Relations Workgroup. Sustainability is happening everywhere, but not in a separate group. Since there are no large donors to work with, the Donor Relations group is unnecessary. Another proposal was to make the Library it’s own workgroup and place it under the Spiritual Director, and to add Member Support under the Membership Workgroup.
Technology Workgroup Update:
Decision: moved to next meeting.
