AIRR REPORTS a. Evaluation of Marin Graves (Reading/Interview) The evaluation committee consisted of Fred Burke, Valentina Burton and Briana Saussy; catherine did the reading. http://www.readersandrootworkers.org/index.php?title=Marin_Graves Reading The interview was concluded with very good results. catherine did reading with her. Marin did not recommend rootwork, candle services; only did a reading, but she requested feedback and was quite professional as a reader. Marin said that KEEN experience predisposed her to avoid that kind of activity. She was informed that this would be important for AIRR members, but otherwise performed excellently. Interview This also went very well. Marin was professional and candid. She's working on her website (under construction). Photograph suggestions were helpful to her (bars of soap) and she will be adding changes to her page/photographs. She wants to use AIRR to draw rootwork clients. Her website indicates readings. She was a paralegal in Nevada City NV (and thus is fond of court case help); She needs to direct her page(s) toward specialization, and 60/70$ difference of reading rates needs to be reconciled. Overall she provided the information requested and was very satisfactory as a candidate. VOTES = 5 YES VOTES --------------------------- b.

Board members must log in as pastors to see the back end of the CSL site; expect to spend 5 - 10 minutes in review. ========================== 5. BOARD MEETINGS Should the Board schedule regular bi-monthly meetings with proposed agendas such as this, rather than following our previous policy of yearly meetings with extra meetings called only to deal with new or emergency issues? Sindy suggested 1/ quarter. Generally a helpful time may be Tues/Thurs: afternoon 2:00pm. Board members were requested to send dates for Oct/Dec to the Secretary for the last week in October and December. There was general agreement that regular meetings would be helpful to conduct the business of the church. =========================== 6. DENOMINATION a. Briana is closing the Sanctuary of Divine Light * It is due to insufficient time (new baby, home, etc.). * She will continue participating with Crystal Silence League. * Her website will need repair or adjustment. Fred will arrange with Bri to roll over in the page code; There is a 3 day window before it's finished with its hosting. Bri will work with Fred to achieve the best way to finish it up. Data to be determined: domain name cost / year: - registration: 3-5 years - hosting: 30-50 / mo - redirect: negligible. Fred said that he could take over the hosting himself. * Sindy suggested commitment in duration be formalized for affiliates. There was some vocal agreement on this point. --------------------------- b. Review of Affiliation With Trolldomskappelet: Johannes Gardback, Benedikte Lindstrom, Ida Lunden They painted their building in the MISC colours and are performing Crystal Silence League prayers there, but have not yet sent a formal request for affiliation. Catherine is in correspondence. When and if they apply for affiliation, the Board will need to approve them. This is more or less a heads-up.
