Meeting Minutes

I.   Call to Order

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

Ms. Barrett welcomed everyone to the meeting. The Board welcomed Ms. D Pryor as the new City of Charlottesville representative. Everyone introduced themselves.

III.   Comments from the Public

Ms. Jones brought a letter forward to the Board with considerations and concerns related to Adult MH services.

IV.   Chair’s Remarks

Ms. Demleitner attended a MHFA training. It was a good learning experience.

V.   Executive Director’s Remarks

See previous month’s packet. Ms. Beitz recognized the passing of the Commissioner. She invited the Board to attend the October PAC Conference. The Louisa Clubhouse will stay open for the time being. The new building will proceed as planned. Ms. Beitz attended the Quarterly Consumer Brunch and found it to be a great experience and time to connect with the consumers who attended. Annual reports are being turned in to VACSB. These were included in the packet. The Strategic Plan was also included. The Values were operationalized. Region Ten is a primary stakeholder in the MH and Wellness Coalition. Region Ten partners with the Coalition and the director, Rebeca Kendall, is about 75% Coalition and 25% Region Ten. Hager House Redesign, has some significant concerns for Region Ten around TDT services. Credentialing requirements are changing, service structure is changing to a more tiered system, and funding isn’t quite where it is needed to be. It was suggested that Region Ten share this information with staff so that they are aware. This should be extended to the school employees as well.

VI.   Consent Agenda

Mr. Gould motioned and Mr. Lewis seconded the motion to approve the consent agenda. The motion was unanimously approved.

VII.   Fundraising Committee

The committee has been working on sending out grant letters and creating a schedule. Mr. Gould suggested that it would be helpful if the committee could indicate the Board fully supported and donated to the Power of Ten grants.

VIII.   Other Business

Mr. Lewis indicated the PAC would like to select the Peer Advisor.  Ms. Beitz asked that they give Ms. Burke a chance to get comfortable in her position and that we could revisit this again in December.

Mr. Kronstain wanted to say kudos to Emily Warren’s prevention team for being seen everywhere in the community training individuals on how to recognized mental health needs.

Ms. Pryor was at the Krano event this weekend. She indicated this was a large and well received event.

IX.   Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned.
