Item 1: Personnel Committee Election (15 minutes)

Election: Three candidates for the Personnel Committee will be presented for election.—Submitted by the Personnel Committee

Item 2: Modifying the Retirement Policy (30 minutes)

Discussion: Current policy does not allow a process for members to retire with less than 20 years of membership regardless of age. This proposal would allow members over the age of 65  to retire with a staggered scale balancing years of
membership with age.—Submitted by Ruth Willner

Item 3:  Transparency and Accountability at the Gazette (45 minutes)

Discussion: Rejection letters from the Linewaiters’ Gazette are vague and offer no advice. Every time a letter is rejected, the editors must reply to the letter-writer specifying the reasons and specifying which parts of
the letter are objectionable.—Submitted by Jesse Rosenfeld

V. Board of Directors Meeting (9:30)

VI. Wrap-Up (9:30-9:45)
Includes member sign-in for work slot credit.
