The CWR Board of Directors met via videoconference on Thursday, May 26. In the interest of keeping members informed, we present highlights from that meeting:

During the meeting’s opening prayer, the Board reflected on “Focused” by Juan Carlos Gómez.

Chair Kim Westerman noted that month-by-month communication planning has been added to the 12-month overview of Board and staff functions. As the overview is a living document, Board members were encouraged to add communication tasks for their respective committees as necessary.
