Mike Hoffman (Changing Our World) and Kevin Quigley presented an update on Phase
II of the campaign: Pre-Campaign Planning. They focused on the three key tasks as
directed by the Board at its March 2009 meeting.

of the new social networking website and the Gates Foundation grant for Africa Rural
Connect. The largest challenge lay in the failed database conversion, although we are
pleased by the progress already made on upgrading our original system to meet our
Chuck Ludlam asked how we might respond if asked about a particular nominee for
Peace Corps Director. Kevin indicated that we would reiterate the principles outlined in
our letter sent to the transition team in fall 2008. We would also work with Senate staff
regarding some potential questions for the nominee. If further communication is needed,
staff would draft a response for board input and action.

Treasurer’s Report – Sandra Lauffer

Overview: Sandra provided an overview of NPCA finances, referring to her detailed
Treasurer’s Report provided in advance of the meeting.
Both revenue and expenses are under the year-to-date budget. Due to data transfer issues,
membership, royalties and subscriptions are below target for this time of year. However,
systems are back on track, so we expect that most of those revenue variances are
temporary. We will have to carefully monitor consulting fees and information
technology over the next several months.
We had a very clean audit this year, with no significant deficiencies or material
weaknesses. All “other areas of concern” are easily addressed by staff and/or Board.
Action Item
Motion (Priscilla Goldfarb) that the board accept the audit. Seconded (Bob
Graulich). The motion passed unanimously.
Business and Development Report – Priscilla Goldfarb and Bob Graulich
Priscilla reviewed the report and update presented in the Board Book, particularly the
work around the successful $100,000 50th Fund, support for the 50th Campaign
Leadership Committee, and recruiting new members (for Director’s Circle, NPCA and
the Board Committee).
