Motion from Christy to approve the Minutes from August 26, 2015. Vote: 4 for, 0 against Resolved: Motion carried

Tyler Presented the Executive Director Report

Tyler talked about applying for more specific local grants as part of a new sponsorships strategy. The board felt it was a good idea, but in the process of doing so the operational complexity involved with meeting grant criteria, as well as the time required to submit the grants would need to be carefully balanced. There was also concern around the number of grants available to fund ongoing operations. It was ultimately decided that working on grants should go forward with those drawbacks being monitored.

Edward discussed his intent to resign from the board, and what would be necessary to create a transition strategy. There were three main questions which were slated for offline review:

Tyler agreed to look into the legal requirements for the board, while Edward volunteered to talk to the board members individually to discuss their thoughts for who should become Chairman. The board agreed to table discussion of additional directors for the moment.

Adjournment of Meeting

The meeting was adjourned at 8:01pm by Edward Jiang.
