Resolutions 2012-2013 Annual Plan Feedback?
This resolution approving the 2012-2013 Annual Plan was approved 9-0, with 1 absent, in-person on July 11, 2012.

RESOLVED, that the Board of Trustees hereby approves management's proposed 2012-2013 annual plan, which includes US$46 million of revenues, US$42 million of spending (including US$11.4 million in funding associated with the new Funds Dissemination Committee), and a US$4 million increase to financial reserves.

If, during the year, management anticipates the annual reserve at each quarter-end will differ materially from the plan, the Board directs management to consult the Board Treasurer promptly.

Since the plan was developed, both staff and Board have reflected on the scope of our mandate and the associated rate of growth, and how that impacts our ability to focus on the movement's mission. Therefore, we further direct the Executive Director to carry out an assessment of the Foundation's programs and strategic priorities, considering these recent staff and Board discussions. Based on this review, the Executive Director should present options for adjusting the annual plan, potentially reducing or eliminating lower-priority programs and capabilities, by the October Board meeting.
