[RC] Motions before the Board next month - Michael Maul


In response to your note on RC about information concerning what the BoD will 
have on the agenda for
March meeting - I've tried to make the information available when there is 
something reasonably 
complete to post.  The material has to come from the AERC office for me to make 
it available on the
AERC site.

I've done this for the past two years(4 meetings) and it unfortunately doesn't 
seem to come together
until about 2 weeks 
before the meeting.  It would be nice to have it available a month ahead of 
time(and available to
members in EN) as your post to the BoD requested.  The BoD did get your post.  

Here's a personal comment on the availability of material.  If the convention 
is March 14 and the
should have 30 days to review it per your request - that means it must be in 
the Feb. issue of EN. 
EN for Feb.
goes to the printer the first week in January.  This means discussion of the 
material and review by
appropriate committees must occur in the month of December or earlier given 
that the holiday season
is busy
for us all.

This is a long lead time plus it could preclude having something at the meeting 
that came up after

You are right that it would be ideal if the complete membership would have 30 
days to 
consider all the issues to be presented.  Given that we - the Directors - are 
all volunteers at this
and have
day jobs as well - in practice it just doesn't happen.

And while the process could be shortened by online availability of the material 
- about 1/3 of our
members are
not online.  And of those online - not all are diligent about reading email or 
visiting websites.

Bottom line here is that there will be an agenda and motions posted in the next 
few weeks as the
approaches.  The BoD always appreciates as much feedback as we can get from 
members even on short

I hope to see you all at the convention in Tennessee.

Mike Maul
AERC Director-at-Large
