IV. Council Meeting/Member Survey or Agenda Review
Alex McArthur reviewed the draft August Council meeting agenda. Kerri Eaker asked when the “save the date” announcement was going to be sent out via all social media. JoAnn Toomey informed the EC that David Ingram was working on final edits with Devika Rao of O’Neill Communications, and that it should be “blasted” out this afternoon. Kerri Eaker also reminded the EC that it will be Vicki Smith’s last Council meeting before she retires and that she should be recognized for her service during the August meeting. The EC members agreed with this plan.
V. Conference Funding Requests
The members reviewed a request from VAE Raleigh (Visual Art Exchange) for an event titled, “The EVERYDAY: disabled, universal, audacious”, being held August 2-5, 2018 at the Contemporary Art Museum, Raleigh to fund a speaker’s fee and travel expenses in the amount of $2,973.95. Alex McArthur recused herself from the discussion and vote since she is on the VAE board.

She said that there has been more participation than ever before so there is some very good data. Once the information has been compiled, Alex will review the results with Chris.
Alex asked JoAnn Toomey to update the members on the In-House ADA initiative. JoAnn asked the members to consider approving a no-cost extension to this in-house initiative so that it will align with the end date of the external ADA Fiscal Intermediary initiative of September 15, 2018.
