  1. New structure of the members of the Board.

  • Imelda discussed the new structure of the board members proposed by the existing board members. Since no one from the current members of the Board want to accept the Chair position, the Chairman role and responsibilities will be divided into 5 members. Bianca will serve as acting Chair until the Board decides to permanently appoint a new Chair. The 5 board members will handle the following committees: Administrative, Diversity, Education, Human and Environment, and Language and Culture Preservation. We will add two new seats for the board member. One seat will be through appointment, and another is through election.
