    Fellow Trustees


    As a follow up I sent an email over a month ago requesting any interested board member in being a delegate to notify me.  I had no notifications until now.  I would of been happy to add that to a previous agenda, as we had plenty of time to vote.

    Hello, Gary,

    I am in receipt of your email of this morning advising the Board that we will not be having a meeting this coming Monday, October 19th.

    One of the items I was going to write you and Judy about this morning (which may very well be a moot point now) is that one of the items to be added to this Monday's agenda is the selection of an MASB delegate for the Delegate Assembly by resolution and the Board's direction to this delegate on the items to be voted on which are listed in the attached MASB Delegate Handbook.

    I don't know that there is a way to accomplish this without Monday's meeting.  I will be attending the meeting as a non-voting attendee in any event.  If there is some way to accomplish the above, I would be happy to serve as the Board's delegate so that Grosse Pointe has some formal representation at the Assembly.

    Thank you,


    P.S. to all Board members--there is a great chart on parliamentary procedure in the handbook that you may want to print out for future reference.
