NLS Board Minutes: Miami, FL
July 23, 2009 – Thursday Board Meeting
The Board met at Barry University at 10:30 a.m.
Present: Tracy Schmidlin, Dave Erdman, Bob Northrup, Katie Sistar, Doug Givan, Judy Laabs-Foss, Diane Purcell, Larry Conway, and Ron Millard.
Discussed the duties of the Archivist to include Historian. We need to encourage delegates to turn in their names to Ron on the 3x5 cards that will be on the tables if they would like to help gather the history of our organization. A Region representative to help Ron with this project would be helpful.
Discussed the possibility of stipends for travel to or registration for NLSAM for the appointed positions.
The executive board met after the appointed members were excused. In a closed session, the board continued to discuss several issues including reimbursement for appointed board members in attendance at the Annual Meeting.
Bob Northrup moved that appointed board members who attend the Annual Meeting at the request of the board will be reimbursed registration and reasonable travel costs. Other appointed board members who attend the National Meeting may request reimbursement of expenses up to $200. Dave Erdman seconded. Motion passed unanimously.
Katie Sistar moved that the expense policy just approved be applied to the 2009 Annual Meeting. Doug Givan seconded. Motion passed.
Meeting adjourned at 11:30 a.m.
