I. Call to Order
Vice-Chair Cheryl Powell opened the meeting of the Executive Committee (EC) and welcomed the members calling in.

II. Approval of Minutes
The draft minutes of the October 21, 2019 Executive Committee meetings were reviewed.

MOTION: Aldea LaParr made a motion to approve the October 21, 2019 minutes with the noted revision. Amanda Bergen seconded the motion. The motion was approved by unanimous vote.

III. Council Meeting/Member Survey or Agenda Review
The members reviewed the paper and electronic survey results. They all agreed that most of the comments were very positive, and they were glad to see the number of survey responses had improved greatly. The electronic survey had one comment that had a reminder for Will Miller to receive his committee materials electronically before or during the committee meeting. The paper surveys were also positive with a couple comments regarding the RFA packets needing to be mailed out sooner and for two members with nut allergies to get a different snack on Friday morning that didn’t contain nuts (it has been confirmed that they do not have an airborne allergy to nuts).

JoAnn Toomey updated the members regarding the staff debrief the previous Tuesday on the November Council meeting and that their comments were also mostly positive, especially regarding the awards reception, the new member orientation, the Five-Year State Plan activity, all the presentations on Wednesday and Thursday and the Justice affirmation on Friday.
