Bill Schaefer reminded us in this Spring's Epworthian (SLI) Newsletter that the Trustee Board is made up of an all-volunteer force made up of all its committees when they gather together monthly for open and public meetings. These selfless folks are elected by the members of the Silver Lake Institute. The voting members are the property owners who have chosen to live in this unique "artsy" community and also those who have inherited property here.
These are the committees that make up the Board and their chairpersons: Executive - Bill Schaefer; Finance - Pete Mairs; Grounds - Craig Bateman; Waterfront - open; Worship - Don Weaver; Program - Julie Hoffner; Legal - Pete Mairs; Stoody Hall - Linda Mairs/Kathy Schaefer; Epworth Hall - Sharon Pratt; Hoag Gallery - Linda Franke; Long Range Planning - Bob Cook.
Each Committee and each chairperson represents another group of volunteers who have agreed to care for the needs of the Institute covered by that committee. While chairpersons are Board members, committee members do not need to be Board members.
Trustee Board Non-Members provide valuable support for the Board: Bookkeepers - Schmidt & Volk Accountants LLC; Registrar - Kathy Gilner; Groundsman - Daniel Dake.
