The District 1 Community Council Board of Directors met on November 26, 2017 in a session to learn more about the financial workings of the organization and to approve the budget and workplan for 2018. Board members heard from our bookkeeper and our executive director about how finances are handled, their responsibilities for oversight, and about the safeguards in place to assure proper management of funds.
The workplan for the coming year includes a process to re-brand the organization, and to implement our equity plan, developed this year.
As a note regarding that equity work, District 1 and five of its sister organizations received an award last week for the Equity Strategic Planning we did - the Local Government Innovation Award - City category. We are grateful to the Humphrey School and the Bush Foundation for this award. We will forge ahead with our implementation with additional funding from the City and the award itself.
