The program is a yearlong program that began in September and covers diverse topics such as government, economics, education and communication just to name a few. It has been a great program and my experiences have been very positive. Ms. Goldwater added that there will be a fundraising program in June which all program participants will be charged with finding sponsorships for their project. Ms. Goldwater stated that the sponsorships will range from $200 to $1500 but that there was not any information yet on the project or details about the different sponsorships. Mr. Miles stated that the District also participates in the Arvada Leadership Program which painted the entire interior of the CRC in one day and provided a new sound system as their project in 2010. Mr. Miles then added that the District had agreed to host the Business After Hours event for Metro North Chamber but only one date was available which we are not able to accommodate at Indian Tree, so we have asked for a date in 2014. Rachel Van Winkle stated that last year she utilized the Metro North Chamber to promote our annual Father’s Day 5K/Fun Run and that the $1500 Contributing Sponsor package would allow a better opportunity to promote our 5K at their event.

The engineers will develop a protocol for monitoring the roof repair and the air flow issues to determine if there are things we can do better to monitor the environment. Humidity and temperature are also being constantly monitored in the facility. The monitoring will help with determining the life of the facility and if any further repairs to the facility will be needed in the short term future.
