      1. Social media posts must be specific in what we’re looking for in a board member; let’s set the expectation that board members take on one of the calendar projects

      2. Proposing August 18 as next meeting

  5. New business

    1. Joanna will get pricing and take care of Goethe signs for next meeting

    2. Recruitment side - we need to figure out what we need to do in collaboration with the LSC and FOGS

    3. New meeting locations - should we get out of the school (outside of library)? Should be faster than 2 hour meetings, we need to keep it more like a status report of what’s going on with committee meetings

    4. LSC reports from FOGS have been incredible and everyone’s very happy about that transparency

    5. Need to continue having staff come to FOGS to present what they were asking money for
