CHAIR’S REPORT John Gyllin
John Gyllin shared some overarching thoughts about the role of FCRD. More information will be discussed on this topic at the board meeting at the Spring 2017 conference.
- Discussion regarding Executive Committee membership- follow-up
Jackie Skryd is scheduling a follow-up call with the nominating committee. The board has an opening for a member from grants as well as a member from the foundation side. There is an opening for the Second Chair and it must be a foundation person. Ann Decker noted the value of spending a couple of years on the board before taking an executive role. The board discussed the possibility if either Sue Ellen Mann or Cristie Kedroski would be interested in the Second Chair position. This discussion will be continued at the April board meeting at the Spring conference.

- Legislative Activities
