Ms. Hughes welcomed UVA students to the meeting. Ms. Hughes updated the Board on the Symposium, which will be moved to the fall so that legislators can attend. The Succession Committee will look at how staff at Region Ten can grow and flourish within Region Ten. Anyone interested in this area may meet with the committee.

Strategic Planning meeting scheduled for May is now going to be July 12th at 9am.

 Mr. Gould reminded the Board of the Festival of the Book, which took place a couple of months ago. Region Ten was not part of 2017’s festival, but will be for 2018. Mr. Gould would like the Board to suggest some newly published books to be considered as our presentation for the festival. Staff has been invited to make suggestions as well. A final decision needs to be made by the fall.

 V.   Executive Director’s Remarks

See previous month’s packet. Ms. Lewis’ last day is May 31st. Waiting to hear back on the final funds needed to move forward with plans. Discussions have taken place about Louisa and a facility needed in that county. Region Ten is being looked at closely to see how effective we are, as well as all other CSBs. The goal is to standardize services across the board. Went after $5 million in grants so far this year.

 A coalition was recently put together in Southern Virginia to bring the rural services together. Also, the WTC has broken ground.

Ms. Williams reviewed the FY18 Budget Projection with the Board. A copy of the PowerPoint will go out to Board members through Ms. Phipps.

 X.   Personnel Committee

Ms. Wernstrom brought up the need for a Board liaison to the Leadership Team that is not dependent of the Executive Director. The liaison would only need to meet with the Leadership Team quarterly and without the Executive Director in attendance. It was decided, however, that a liaison is not needed, and the motion was removed.

 XI.   Succession Committee

Six candidates were sent to the Leadership Team for review to get an idea of how well they felt the applicants would suit Region Ten. Of those six, three were going to be scheduled for interviews. One of those three has removed themselves from consideration by taking another position elsewhere. These two interviews will take place on May 18th via Skype.

 The Executive Director Position will be reopened this Friday and will remain open until filled.

There was no additional business at this time.
