LCCR (KPFZ) TELEPHONIC Board Meeting Mar 19, 2020

Dear Board members and staff/volunteers:  BY now you should have all received an invitation from Chloe Karl to join the meeting via ZOOM.  Roberta took it for a test drive and reports success!  So, hopefully we can all join the meeting by tele.  

Chloe is in charge of getting us all connected.  THANK YOU CHLOE!  It's a first, so we've decided to start the meeting at 6:00 pm so that by 6:15 we're all connected and ready to roll. The agenda and attachments referenced are in this email so hopefully we can do this sans paper. One thing about tele-conferencing is that we can't talk over one another, only one person speaks at a time.  

Thanks all for working through this process.

 Olga

Participants will call in at 6 pm
The ZOOM meeting will start at 6:15 pm

The agenda and minutes are attached as comments to this post.

Public Input:   Roberto said that he has noticed the on air signal is breaking up frequently and the station is going off the air more often.

There was a moment of silence to remember Beth Hyde who passed away recently.   

III.      Approval of Minutes –The minutes from the last regular meeting on 1/16/20 will be reviewed and approved next month.

IV.      Treasurer’s Report – Actor submitted a written report. Our ending balance as of date of meeting is approximately $14,475.00.  We also paid off our long standing debt to the Federal Government.  Our income for January was $2,800.00 

V.       General Manager’s Report – Weiss.  a. Spring Fund Drive will be April 18-24.  We need to get the Newsletter out before then.  Board Members need to sign up for the day they will monitor the fund drive and assist with pitching on air.  Karl is in charge of the Newsletter so articles can be turned into her.  Marci Long is preparing the layout of the Newsletter.  She has been doing this for years for us for free.  Motion by Krones that we pay her $250 for her work on this year’s Newsletter.  Karl 2nd.  Passes. 

b. Weiss requests the Board approve radios for a premium for The Spring Fund Drive.  They cost $25.00 each.  Ley suggests trying to get a grant to pay for the radios.  Martin-Steele can ask PG&E at an upcoming meeting she is going to attend.  Green made a motion to authorize Weiss to spend up to $1,500 to buy radios for Fund Drive Premiums after the radios have been tested for quality.  Kelly 2nd.  Moorhead suggests not buying the radios until we know how many we need.  Motion withdrawn by Green. 

c. Deb Pollock has been doing our accounting for several years.  She is requesting an increase. Green made a motion to pay Pollock $400/ a month for accounting services.  Ley 2nd.  There was discussion.  Even though we have money now we still have to be thrifty.  Green amended to $350.00 and then a 3rd amendment to $300.  2nd by Karl.  Passes. 

d. Signal stutter is back.  Starting in February 2020 we have a license approval good for 3 years to obtain a STL line. We still have the money we raised previously to fix the stutter problem.  We will be on a licensed frequency and can complain to the FCC if someone interferes with our signal.  Weiss and Moorhead are going explore further what needs to be done on this project.      

VI.      Committee Reports: 

a. Program Committee – a.  Karl reported there will be several new shows starting.  There is still a major problem with security at the station because programmers are not locking the doors at night.  This will be addressed at the next meeting. 

b. Underwriting – Roberto Lozano.  He reported we have 2 new underwriters and 7 renewals.  Linda Kelly presented a “Push” proposal where underwriters can pay for an upcoming event and have it played frequently in the previous month.  This proposal will be discussed next meeting.  

c. Tech Report – John Saare submitted a written report.
