Consent agenda


John Wiley will be on the board until April 2008, Jori Manske until October 2008, Valentina Rosenberg until February 2009, Marshall Rosenberg until February 2009. Katherine Singer is Emeritus.


The official CNVC address with all financial institutions with which we have accounts will change on May 1, 2007 to:

P.O Box 6384
Albuquerque NM 87197


CNVC will open new bank accounts with Wells Fargo. (current bank Citibank doesn't have a branch in NM). Note: This was done 4/16/07.


No further action will be taken to complete the 2004 Audit. Consent 4/19/07

Background: This decision was taken to meet needs for ease, and for conservation of resources we can invest in directly serving the CNVC mission. The 2004 audit is not legally required, and we have a high level of confidence in our financials for that period.

Tabled Item

A tracking discussion of past decisions was postponed until the next board meeting to allow board members to review a tracking spreadsheet and to allow for further updating of the tracking spreadsheet.


New office manager, Margo Pair, introduced herself and received welcoming statements from the Board and LT members present.
