June 11th Board Meeting: plowing through that massive agenda

This was an experiment on my part. I thought “If I were a Board Member, I would have about 3 days to go through this entire agenda, read the associated documents, and try to be prepared for the Monday night Board Meeting.” Having gone through this ludicrous list, I now have much more respect for Board Members. At the same time, if I were a Board Member, I would be punching myself in the face! 🙂 There has got to be a better way to do this. For the record, it took me about 2 hours to type all this up, going through the agenda items one by one.

Also, much respect for folks like Dr. Wiegand that have to fill in for Gene Logas – he certainly carried a lot of responsibility.
