The board of directors met last month for the quarterly business meeting and often present the minutes at a dinner meeting. Unfortunately, due to covid19 precautions, there have been limited meetings. Please see the below board meeting minutes from last quarter which have been approved by the board.

Education Committee (Henry Guevera): there will be upcoming in-person meetings with limited seating to meet the requirements of Covid19 precautions. Virtual meetings have not been as popular.
