    • Jennett (NGO lawyer) on the call for final Q&A
      • Discussed ways in which the Board of Directors, Executive Director, and Officers interact within the NGO
        • Specific Item: Treasurer - Do one of the board positions to constantly be filled by someone with a finance background or will an employee from the OpenMRS organization serve as treasurer to report to the Board?
        • Treasurer could be an ex-officio board member and an employee/operational member of the org can report to that individual since the employee is involved with the finances on a daily basis
      • Supported Organizations
        • Discussed the process of adding additional organizations in the future
        • This goes into the Articles of Incorporation
      • Board of Directors
        • Since the Supported Organizations must elect a majority of the Board members, we will put in the Bylaws that the organizations must work together to nominate, unanimously agree upon, and elect the three Appointed Board member positions.
