Ms. Vasquez also provided FFYs 2016-2018 budget summaries and detail reports as requested at the April Executive meeting and the May Council meeting.

IV. NCCDD Listening Sessions Schedule, Update & Kickoff Results:
Members reviewed the dates and places of the upcoming Listening Sessions. Sam Miller questioned why we were not meeting in the middle of the state – mainly Guilford and Mecklenburg counties. He also mentioned that he questioned in the State Plan Ad Hoc committee held earlier today, why the questions being asked at the listening sessions don’t match the questions in the survey. He wondered how results would be compiled.
Staff will discuss other locations and the question concerns after next week’s listening sessions in Raleigh and Henderson. Katie Holler said she would not be able to attend the Pitt or Craven county sessions but would see if she could attend another one. Ron Reeve discussed the kick-off results from the May Council meeting.
V. Ad Hoc Committee Updates:
Azell Reeves and Crystal Foreman gave an update on the Governance Ad Hoc Committee. Adonis Brown reviewed the Five Year Plan Ad Hoc committee progress. Carrie Ambrose updated the members on the Membership & Development Ad Hoc meetings and Crystal Foreman updated the members on the Communications Ad Hoc. The committees are all making progress toward the outcomes they have been charged with.
VI. Membership Update:

VII. ADA Celebration Update:
Staff informed members that the date for the Raleigh celebration has been changed to Friday,July 24th, and that details will be sent soon.
VIII. PPR Update:
