Tyler Presented the Executive Director Report

Edward asked to discuss the fundraising event in more detail, because he did not think it was a good use of time. Tyler brought up that it was the most effective way he could think of to make immediate progress with engagement in Seattle, which was a key region. Charlie brought up that in the long run, StudentRND should be looking to have as many touchpoints with parents as possible to increase the chance of donations, and Tyler agreed. It was decided that an event focusing on alums and some parents would be a good idea to move forward with, provided a venue could be secured quickly.

Edward also wanted to discuss the contracts for future RMs. The board identified several possibilities for contracts this year:

It was ultimately agreed that the best course would be to try a compensation model with payment gated on getting sponsorship, and with the option to cancel for failing to do so, in some regions, and to continue with the existing contracts in other regions.
