WBAI LSB Meeting — March 30, 2006

The forty third WBAI Local Station Board (LSB) meeting was held on Thursday, March 30, 2006, at 6:30 PM at Local 1199's Bread and Roses Art Gallery, 310 W. 43rd St. in Manhattan. This is not an official Web page of the LSB.

This was our third meeting in one month!

We'd been supposed to have had an executive session at the meeting. I wondered if the faction was going to try to initiate the firing of interim General Manager (iGM) Indra Hardat because she was not knuckling under to them. When the meeting started the proposed agenda handed out didn't have the executive session on it. I asked the Chair if the iGM's absence, which had been announced before the meeting, was the reason why the executive session had vaporized from the agenda. The Chair said no. Hah!

Mariana Gaston, who'd been missing a lot of meetings, resigned by letter at this meeting and Berta Silva took her place.

So the previously set election for the General Manager Search Sub-committee was held. Elected to it were Marion Borenstein, Steve Brown and Lawrence Lucas. Basically Lucas replaced Gaston on this sub-committee which hadn't done a damned thing in a year!

During the Treasurer's Report I made a motion that the Treasurer report to the LSB on the fate of the cash receipts from the infamous Riverside 9/11 fund raiser from 2003. That motion is reproduced below. Of course the faction voted against it. Gosh, you'd think that they'd want to exercise their fiduciary duty on this, wouldn't you? I wonder what they were afraid of officially finding out?

My motion regarding a report from the Treasurer about the cash receipts from the Riverside 9/11 fundraiser

That the WBAI Treasurer prepare and deliver a report to the WBAI LSB Finance Committee regarding the finances of the WBAI Riverside 9/11 fund raising event held in September 2003.

The report shall include information on all expenses and income associated with the event. The report shall give all details of what happened to the cash receipts collected at the event, who handled the cash receipts and why the cash receipts took eight months to arrive at WBAI.

This topic had come up in a previous meeting, here's a link to the minutes of the executive session portion of that meeting. The LSB had voted to lift the secrecy from that executive session later in 2004.
