B. Survey re: Saving Paper with Printing less agendas 

  • At last month’s Steering Committee, it was agreed that we will continue to print the actual agenda and have those available at meetings.   But concerning the entire agenda packet, we would poll the Board and see if members can access the packet electronically at any and all of our meetings which would include task forces and committees.  The survey was sent on December 13 and 3 responses were received, 2 of which want the entire packet printed and the other was from an alternate who does not regularly attend the meetings.
