I.  President’s Report

  • President Frankenfeld updated the Board on the following items:
  • A payment was received from the emergency loan that was issued to a member this summer.
  • The CCO Board has a new Chair, Jennifer Funk.  President Frankenfeld has been advised to go directly to her rather than Mike Cioffi regarding the CBA.
  • The CSO holiday vacation situation was discussed at an orchestra meeting.  Since the holiday season is ambiguous at best all vacation time will be met equitably.
  • There was not a positive outcome to the trombone auditions.  There will be another round scheduled as soon as can reasonably be managed.
  • The preliminary negotiation conversation with Barbara Jaccoma went very well.
  • Talks in Minnesota collapsed again.
  • The ongoing issue of getting the pianists used at Music Hall paid in a timely manner is still ongoing.  For the time being Paul Frankenfeld will be given a check to pass along to Promo, Inc. so that payroll checks can be issued.
  • CCO pension payments are still in escrow and Vicky Hall in NY has been told to go ahead and post the payments.

II.  Constitution Revision Ballots

  • Both ballots and letters are ready to out this week to the membership.
