The LSC Board of Director’s meeting is open to everyone.  It is a great way to get to know what is going on in our LSC.  This month, we are testing out the ability of attending via conference call.  You can either call in on a phone, or log in via a computer.  I will try to present via the computer where we are in the agenda.  I am hopeful that it will work well, but please do give me feedback on how well it works and its usefulness.  The conference call details are:

Dial-in Number: (641) 715-3580
Access Code: 126668
A couple of things that can be reviewed prior to the meeting are the minutes from the previous meeting and the consent agenda for this meeting.  The consent agenda contains the reports from the different committees so that we only go over the things that need discussion during the meeting.  Here are links to the important documents:
I hope you can attend.
