Meeting Minutes

I.   Call to Order

Ms. Hughes called the meeting to order at 4:00 PM.

 II.   Welcome

Ms. Hughes welcomed everyone to the meeting.

 III.   Comments from the Public

There were no comments at this time.

 IV.   Chair’s Remarks

Ms. Hughes thank Eddie Deane, Jeff Gould, and the Fundraising Committee for the Greene County Event. It was outstanding and the music was great. Ms. Hughes also thanked Missy Wernstrom for her work on the Succession Committee.

 V.   Executive Director’s Remarks

Mr. Johnson echoed Ms. Hughes remarks. A formal report will be coming in January about the staff retention progress. Have raised or received pledges for over $400,000 to date. Should hear a final decision from the Perry Foundation early in December. Have potential for another $20,000 to $100,000, and still some possibilities from the CACF donors. A meeting will be set up with that group soon.

 Mr. Johnson will reach out to Mr. Harding to set up a meeting to begin planning the legislative process to speak to localities.

 Mr. Johnson would like permission to formally notify staff about his retirement.

 VI.   Consent Agenda

Ms. Hughes asked for any changes to the agenda. Ms. Hughes requested approval of the consent agenda.

 On a motion made by Mr. Gould and seconded by Mr. Krasnegor, the consent agenda was unanimously approved.

 VII.   Finance Committee: Audit Report

Mr. Swiggett indicated that the committee reviewed the audit report in October. The findings were excellent. Ms. Susan Chapman presented the Audit Report. There were no new year findings, comments or suggestions. Brown Edwards issued an unmodified opinion, which is the best that can be received. Region Ten is a low risk auditee, which means there have been two years of unmodified opinions received.

 VIII.   Succession Plan Committee

Ms. Wernstrom has a copy of Robert’s resignation letter. Ms. Faison from VACSB will meet with the Succession Planning Committee to help guide the committee in the process. Committee asked Mr. Johnson his thoughts about what Region Ten should be keeping in mind going forward regarding changes or other areas to pay attention to during this process.

 Ms. Allen suggested having something on the website’s front page close to Robert’s actual retirement to acknowledge Robert and his accomplishment over the years.

 IX.   Finance Committee Motion

From the Finance Committee:

 “I move that the Board of Directors of Region Ten CSB accept the FY 2015-2016 Audit Report from Brown Edwards Certified Public Accountants as submitted.”

 On a motion from the Finance Committee, the above motion was unanimously approved.

 X.   Other Business and Announcements

November 29th at 5:30pm there will be a Governance Committee meeting at Cville Coffee. Mr. Krasnegor met with Mark Carroll from IT, and would like to have Mr. Carroll present to the Board. It was suggested that this take place in January.

 XI.   Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned.
