9.   Treasurer’s report
(B. Whipperman)
B. Whipperman distributed latest P&L statement (TR1). She asked board members to review it and email her with any questions. Bank balance is low at $6500 after payroll. Lots of activity with the fund drive and bills to be paid, but this is typical for this time of year. Fund drive is doing very well with good daily totals and general good feeling. Vehicle donations are steady and this year we got a big one at $5k. Fund drive is Dec. 8-18, 11 days, with $450k goal. As of last night more than 30% or $140k raised with only 36% of days elapsed.

10.   PNB (J. Kobren)
Close to hiring new CFO. NES reported to PNB last night on election status. No election at WPFW where there are not enough candidates. A new board has been declared seated. KPFK, KPFT, WBAI had not reached quorum by Dec. 4 so NES extended balloting close date to Jan. 24. Concerns about where ballot count will be and transparency.

2016 affiliates directors: 2 to be appointed to PNB. Deadline for nominees was Nov. 15 but only 1 application was received. Last night PNB seated that nominee and decided that further applications could be submitted by Dec. 23.

Nomination deadline for PNB directors from LSB is Dec. 31.

Moved (D. Goldmacher) that the PNB take up question of how to learn from KPFA’s successes.

Moved (J. Kobren) to table motion. Approved: 5Y, 2N.

Adjourned 12:52 pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Craig Alderson
Secretary
