2017-021 10/27/17 Scott Harrison Recruitment Committee Accept 12/1/17 Rick Edelson BOD/Exec High From Brian Daley: 

the Board of Directors did discuss the Recruitment Committee and did vote to approve its creation.  No further action was taken, though.  In the Board’s discussion, we were undecided about whether Recruitment should be a sub-committee of Marketing, or if it should be a stand-alone group.  But it is green-lighted, so perhaps next course of action would be to return the Go-Ahead to the submitter of the idea and have them develop a more detailed plan for goals and action items to achieve them.
