Introduction by DDG President Ed Miller

DDG friends – You may recall that John Gruetzmacher offered to create documents with board responsibilities and staff job descriptions to help refine the effectiveness of the DDG. During the summer, has spent hours and hours developing these documents board responsibility documents and staff job descriptions. He sent several versions of each document to Bill Kunkle and to me for our review. I great appreciate John’s willingness to consider the suggestions that I made.

The latest version of each document is attached in the meeting packet in both Word and PDF versions. To easily see a file onscreen, click the PDF link. John can introduce the topic on Monday. There will not be time for a lengthy discussion of the contents. It would be helpful if you could take a quick look at the documents so that you know generally what John is proposing. He can answer any questions that you may have. The plan as designed last February is to discuss the documents at the next annual meeting in February 2020 and adopt them then with whatever revisions the board desires.

I am extraordinarily grateful to John for his commitment and expertise. We are the beneficiaries of his wisdom.

Ed Miller
