    late item for new business: DAWI’s Workers to Owners peer support call: Joe Marraffino has invited Jessie, Alison, and myself at various times to participate – I attended their most recent meeting and need to discuss the protocol for ongoing DAWN participation

    I created 2 proposals for this meeting but did not notify Dana separately that I wanted them on the agenda.
    One was Bethany’s status change request. She is serving on T&C so will meet her vol hours requirement of 2 hours/mo although I misinformed her. And she paid $100 dues. Are the Govs comfortable moving forward on this? If so please vote on the proposal online.
