Board Meeting, Minutes - May 17th, 2020
2. The minutes from the April 5th meeting approved as submitted.
3. John gave the treasurer's report: No change in accounts, savings at $5.01 and checking at $1035.46. ACLU-WI has recommended that we close our current savings and checking accounts based on our own local federal EIN (employer identification number) and start new savings and checking accounts based on the ACLU-WI EIN. This will also give us the opportunity to change the official name on the account to the ACLU of Wisconsin Chippewa Valley Chapter. John W. moved these changes, Paul seconded, motion carried.
5. Ad Hoc Committee Updates
Beer and bill of rights: The board decided not to have an in-person beer and bill of rights. The board discussed options for using distance meeting technology for the beer and bill of rights. Options discussed included a moderated presentation, Q&A, and open discussion, possibly using Zoom, Google docs, Facebook fundraisers, or a combination thereof. The board appointed the subcommittee of Paul, David, and Lindsey to work on the event. The subcommittee will report back to the board with its ideas.
a. No progress on schools letter, the board will consider updating it at a later time.
c. Ann H. brought up the student who suffered racist bullying, and how her obituary included her own statement on the bullying. The board discussed a possible event for students to write something about their own experiences. We hope to flesh out this discussion via email before next month’s meeting.
