Last Monday, the VMICC Council (formerly known as the board) met for the first time under the new bylaws. Here are some items that were discussed:
*It was decided to keep the standard 1st and 3rd Monday meeting schedule for the time being. We will be working on structure and team building and organization on the first Monday meetings, and keep the standard 3rd Monday open for a town hall style meeting, hopefully with relevant topics and speakers.
*New officers were selected for the current year. they are: Tim Johnson, President; Terry Sullivan, Vice President; Steven Buffington, Secretary; Gay Rosser, Treasurer; Max Slade, Clerk.
*Plans were laid to begin using a broader approach to gathering public opinion and interest. We will be submitting questions/topics on facebook, the VMICC web site, and through the mail list to begin building a broader dialogue, and to guide topics in our meetings.
*It was agreed that each of the council members will take on specific areas of concentration as we move forward. Areas like public safety, transportation, land use, social services, technology/outreach, and coordination with other island organizations will be given a point person to work with/start committees, liaison with appropriate agencies, and provide a primary point of contact.
