I. Approval of Minutes:
The draft minutes of the February 20, 2017 Executive Committee meeting were reviewed and considered for approval. A typo was pointed out on page 2 and will be corrected.
MOTION: Anna Cunningham made a motion to approve the February 20, 2017 minutes. Amanda Bergen seconded the motion. The motion was approved.
II. Financial Report and Expenses/Match Update:
Yadira Vasquez reviewed the financial reports for the NCCDD. There was discussion on the 2015-2017 FFY balances and initiative expenditures. Members were also provided FFYs 2018-2020 budget summaries and detail reports as requested. Members noted that there is $68,717 available for new initiatives in FFY 2017 that began October 1, 2016 and $1,543,368 will be available between FFYs 2018 and 2020.
The members reviewed the initiative report and noted that there were no match issues needing attention. They questioned the balances of two in-house initiatives including the Council Development Fund and the Jean Wolff-Rossi Participant Involvement Fund and it was explained that the balances did not include the approved and encumbered expenses. The members asked that those amounts be noted on the initiative report for future meetings. Wing asked the members if there were any other questions or comments and there were none.
III. Council Meeting/Member Survey Review:
Chris Egan reviewed the draft May Council Meeting Agenda with the members. They discussed the potential questions that may be asked during DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen’s time on the Thursday agenda. It was suggested that Chris include in his reminder of the May Council meeting that members send him questions they may want to ask since Secretary Cohen’s time is limited that morning.
Anna Cunningham suggested that perhaps the Communications and Membership Development Ad Hoc Committee, along with O’Neill Communications develop an official resource map/guide or an outreach toolkit for NCCDD to give to visitors and other officials at Council meetings and other events.
IV. Conference Funding Requests:
There were no requests presented for consideration.
V. Personal Services Contract Review/Approval:
There were no Personal Services contracts presented for approval.
VI. Ad Hoc Committees/Updates
