Brief Notes From February 10 2016 PGC Board Meeting
January minutes were approved and have been posted at: http://wcomfm.org/index.php/about/minutes
We came up with a couple of actions to fill our thin bench in engineering.
The Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance has become an Angel Voices underwriter.
Tana Hartman Thorne, Becky Johnson, and Don Emmett have joined the Volunteer Committee.
As required by our bylaws, the Board defined qualifications for being a “member” and thus eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting: Members will be all current hosts with a signed agreement, all who have donated money to WCOM or volunteered in a non-host capacity, and our “staff,” one very part-time bookkeeper. That gives us a total of 80 members.
We are slowing moving toward compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998.
We have filed our 990N to IRS and our application for Exemption from Charitable Solicitation Licensing with the NC Secretary of State.
In January we got funding applications in to Town of Carrboro, Strowd-Roses Foundation, and Orange County. We have station fundraisers planned: WCOM Solstice celebration on top of Pickards Mountain (June 20), WCOM Night at the Kraken (August 20), and our annual birthday celebration at Hickory Tavern (November 3), with one more in the works.
The next board meeting is 4PM on March 9 at The ArtsCenter. All WCOM members may attend.
