Election results-  Board appointment to vacant seat       20

      Michael Papadopolous was unable to be seated as a board member due to federal regulations on the make-up of the Board. We presently have 2 non-citizens serving on the board which is our limit as designated by FCC, and Michael is not a US citizen. If we don't comply, we would expect to lose our FCC license for broadcasting.

Resolution: The Board of Directors recognizes that Michael Papadopolous was unable to be qualified to take a seat on the board due to federal law and FCC regulations. Federal law limits the number of non US citizens who can serve on a board of directors of a broadcasting corporation.

      Nia Lewis was fifth in votes for the election, and has also demonstrated a commitment to board activities. The nominating committee has recommended that the Board appoint Nia to fill the fourth open seat.

Resolution: The Board of Directors appoints Nia Lewis to fill the fourth vacant seat from the September election.

Resolution: Board approves the Auxiliary budget as recommended by the Finance Committee and Staff.

Resolution regarding going forward with staffing analysis      10

Resolution: The KBOO Board of Directors would like to make clear our progress on the process of budgeting and KBOO's strategic direction.  We have completed our budget for fiscal year 2010.  At this point, we have no further changes in staffing levels or staff compensation. When we begin a new process to evaluate these items, we will inform staff and committees.  As we move through the fiscal year, we will begin the new evaluation of all budgetary issues.  This will be based on the mid-year budget report, new feedback from the Jim Ayala management and staffing analysis, and any strategic planning work that we accomplish in this time.
