  • Please take notes to help in writing your report.

  • Report parameters.
    • It is expected to take about 2 hours of uninterupted time to write your first report.

    • Include or attach and reference materials received at the board.

    • Two members attend so each of you review the report prior to release to the Executive Committee.
