Discussion Items

  • Guidelines for reopening

Parameters as set by the draft reopening guidelines are still not within the acceptable range.

Personal vaccination, even for all in a group that might wish to meet inside BUUF buildings, is not a metric because, while we know it decreases severity of illness, we do not know if it decreases transmissability.

The draft guidelines will be considered final and published to the fellowship.

  • Bylaws Update  

Membership items were reviewed including: member responsibilities, ending membership, avenues of participating in fellowship/member meetings.

Action Item

  • Ends Statements

Feedback solicited from fellowship Teams and Committees was positive; no additional changes were requested; some wordsmithing was suggested and will be used.

The Board adopted the new Ends Statements.
