of Governance Review Work Group recommendations. The possible changes to the clusters makes the
election process that’s coming up confusing since the clusters make up could be
changed. The committee decided it was okay to postpone the election until early
next year. All Directors 2 meeting will
be discussing governance revisions. Can
the AC vote on the new governance structure since they are a representative
group? Can we ask at the all directors
meeting how they want this voted on? B.

with a new governance work group and sunset this work group. A new group will
move forward with researching these recommendations. . J. Christensen seconded. Vote:
motion carried. Volunteers for the new
work group: J. Christensen, C. Froistad, B. Stack,
and J. Wavrunek will stay on from the former work
group. J. Berg volunteered to be on the
committee also. Marty will contact the
other members to see if they would like to stay on as well. She will also work on getting more representations
from the Technology and ILS Committees. Marty
will send out cluster information, so members can review it before the new
governance work group meeting.
Cost Formula Work Group and non-ILS Lending Work Group. J. Chase moves to
disband Cost Formula and Non-ILS lending Work Groups. C. Froistad
