6 months' agenda[edit]

The committee agreed that these are priorities until the end of 2016:

  • finalize Katherine's appointment
  • define cornerstones for a productive working relationship of ED/board
  • define evaluation criteria for Katherine's first year
  • prepare a 360" ED performance review (to be established in 2017)
  • compensation comparison of executive director, officers, directors, key employees, and highest compensated employees (see charter)

Check-ins[edit]

The committee usually communicate via mail or shared documents. To ensure that things are moving on the committee meets once a month for a brief check-in. Purpose of the check-in is to ensure that everyone has the same information, to discuss open issues and to identify action points. Due to the nature of the committee there won't be detailed public minutes. The committee though wants to share regularly basic information about its work with summaries of these check-ins.
