LICTON SPRINGS COMMUNITY COUNCIL
Board Member Liz Kearns called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. and announced that Ellen Beck, LSCC Secretary, was excused from tonight’s meeting.
North Seattle Community College
The Integrated Resource Center project is five years in the works and is now receiving national attention and possibly Federal money. This Center will offer job seekers a one-stop system instead of the usual more complex system which required job seekers to visit many different locations to qualify for help. The doors are expected to open in January 2011.
Also leaving North at the end of December will be Roy Flores, currently Vice President of Student Services. Mr. Flores has been with North for 23 years.
Eastern Washington University in Ellensburg is partnering with NSCC to offer a four-year BA degree in Electrical Engineering.
Tom Meyer moved and Jerry seconded a motion to give Liz Kearns, President of LSCC,
authority to sign any 501(c)(3) papers. The motion passed unanimously.
There was much discussion of our Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation. We had e-mails from both Jan Brucker and Ellen Beck with suggestions.
Jan suggested that the number of Board members could fluctuate, and that a quorum be a plurality of the number of currently serving directors. This we all agreed with, but did not vote on at this time.
We found there were a number of sections in our Bylaws that seem outdated and should be reviewed.
Jan also said the IRS will require us to regularly acknowledge and review our Conflict of Interest Policy. It was suggested that Ellen create a form to use for this purpose in 2010.
We discussed a review of our Bylaws and Articles, which should happen in 2010. Some of the review can be done via e-mails. Jerry said the Northwest District Council just finished a review and updating of their Bylaws, which took 18 months. He will get copies of their new revised Bylaws for us.
Kay suggested we need and offered to create a notebook that would hold copies of our Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Conflict of Interest Policy, and all letters that are written by the LSCC.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, January 20, 2010.
The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m.
for Ellen M. Beck, Secretary
