 On a motion made by Ms. Wernstrom and seconded by Mr. LaFave, the consent agenda was unanimously approved.

 VII.   Officer Nominations

 VIII.   Budget Approval

The FY18 Budget was recommended for approval by the Finance Committee and unanimously approved.

 IX.   August Board Meeting

Ms. Hughes suggested there be no August Board meeting, as in years prior. The decision will be made during July’s meeting based on possible needs.

 X.   Other Business

There was no additional business at this time. Albemarle County Board of Supervisor Ms. Palmer asked several questions including turnover for entry-level positions with group homes. Ms. LaFave reminded Board members to educate their localities and encourage questions.

 Mr. Krasnegor indicated that the locality numbers for representation need to be revisited. Mr. Krasnegor will look into a proposal via the Governance Committee. Is there a place for a Consumer Board Member that is not based in a locality but solely on having a consumer representation? Perhaps there is a way to do this on the website? Would advisory councils have a place?

 Questions were raised based around Region Ten’s lack of PR.

 XI.   Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned.
