I expect that a change will be soon announced when the arrangements by the office have been concluded.
Merl, you missed my point totally. The discussion was that the Board is making the phone calls to schedule the room. That's what I'm talking about, not the fact that the Board asks the KCBS office to make the call to attempt to find a time the room is available. You originally stated that the schedule was set by the office and the BOD did not have a say. Granted, they should have run the time past all board members to make sure they were available but they need to be the ones making the arrangements with the hotel is all I'm saying. I'm all for the change of time, as are a few members. I would love for it to be at a time after my flight arrives from KC so that I could attend as well.
