Board Meetings

Board meetings are regularly held on the first full-weekend of each February and August. The February meeting is designated as the Semi-annual Meeting and the August meeting is designated as the Annual Meeting. "Full weekend" is defined as at least the 1st day of the month falling on Saturday.


February 5, 2022

The Annual Board meeting will be structured as a "hybrid" meeting, meaning in-person activities will be simulcast over the internet and will include options for virtual attendance by those preferring not to attend in person. Since the November meeting, TLC has invested heavily in new technologies and devices which should dramatically improve the online experience for everyone involved. For example, in initial tests, online audio was successfully broadcast over the room's PA and those present in-person were able to clearly broadcast to the internet with the use of a microphone, without feedback or distortion. Video will be provided by a number of cameras and will be indepently operated for both online and in-person attendees. These technologies will continue to be refined in hopes of providing a seamless experience for all involved.

The agenda for the next Board Meeting may be downloaded below:
