hi Francis – Following your suggested idea that we each take one policy document to review…

i took pot luck and started with the ethics policy.

The overall principles of the policy appear sound, but some of the items appear more relevant to the times when ISRII hired a management company – so for the time being those items could be removed. They may need to be replaced with items relevant to the current management structure. For example:

Shall “Recognize that the Board member’s job is to ensure that the Society is well
– managed, not to manage the Society” – i assume in the absense of a management company, it is in fact the board’s job to manage the society?

Shall not “Interfere with the duties of the Executive Director undermine the Executive Director’s
authority” – not relevant whilst we dont have an Executive Director?

Shall “Vote to hire the best possible person to manage the Society” – could be changed to ‘Vote to appoint the best possible person to be president of the Society’
