CALL TO ORDER
The meeting was called to order at 2:00 by Judy Barnard.

Writing committee
The writing committee reviewed the core values from the strategic planning meeting of the Board from June 27.
They also reviewed and discussed the following definitions presented at that meeting:
• Preservation
• Education
• Recreation
These definitions will be presented again at the Strategic Planning meeting on July 12 for the Board’s review.

Reorganization – succession planning – As a result of the last strategic planning session where the facilitator, Pam Reidenbach, discussed the Board’s responsibilities for certain functions, such as succession planning, the Committee asked Executive Director Tom Kalousek to update them on some anticipated personnel changes. Tom described the early retirement incentive program, resulting reorganization, and other strategic issues he envisioned over the next 18 months. The Committee suggested that we may want to update the entire Board as part of the Board meeting on July 20.
ADJOURNMENT
The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 AM by Judy Barnard.
