Member Participation in Board Meetings
All meetings will be held via tele-conference and members are welcome to listen in on and/or participate in member discussion periods. To participate, members should dial 712-775-7100 and enter participant access code 1040678# when prompted to do so. Members are expected to refrain from interrupting discussions of the Board. There will be a member discussion period for Board items where appropriate; these discussions will be listed on the agenda. A roll call of those wishing to speak will be made prior to each member discussion period and members will be permitted to make their opinions known in turn. Profanity, disrespectful speech, interruption of others speaking, or other disturbance of Board business will not be tolerated. Members who engage in such will be blocked from participation during the meeting.

Presenting Issues to the Board for Consideration
In addition to other items of business, the Board will consider agenda items from members at each meeting, time permitting. To submit an item for Board consideration, send a detailed message using the "Send a Message to the Board" links on this page. All requests for Board consideration must be received not less than fourteen (14) days prior to the schedule Board meeting. Members submitting items for review will be notified if there is room on the next agenda, or when scheduled.
