Agenda 09.21.2011

Dear MCS Trustees,

I am looking forward to welcoming our new trustees (Liam Pleven - PA Co-President, Sharon Phillips - parent rep, and Flannery Denny - faculty rep) and seeing you all tomorrow evening. Our meeting will start promptly at 6:30 p.m., with dinner available beginning at 6 p.m.

Location: office of Greenberg Traurig,200 Park Avenue, 15th floor, room 15ABC
Note: theVisitorsCenteris in the lobby and you’ll need an ID to sign in
Note: it tends to be cold in our offices, extra layers are advisable

The Executive Committee’s top priority is to identify some new trustees who can help us achieve the goals we set for ourselves and that concur with the outcomes outlined in the Altman Foundation grant. I will share more information about what we’ve done to put a strategy in place at the meeting, however the Executive Committee concluded that Zanetta Addams-Pilgrim (formerly parent rep to the Board) would be a valuable asset if she were to be elected to a 3-year term. We are asking that you review her bio and submit your vote along with your meeting rsvp by e-mail toeporter@manhattancountryschool.org.

Attached are some documents that will give you an idea of how the school year started - the 6/30/11 financial report, the directors’ reports, and the enrollment analysis for 2011-12. There are also the Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest agreements that we must sign annually as trustees. Lastly, the Real Estate Committee has shared a status report from KBA.

I expect to forward two more documents before tomorrow’s meeting, the letter to alumni we’ve been working on with Erbach Communications and the calendar for following up with further communications this fall.

Our work together this year will provide the foundation for MCS many years from now, and I know we have the creativity and determination to accomplish our goals.

Roxanne
Board Chair
