Board considers real estate strategy

Board considers real estate strategy

During its July 30 Quarterly Meeting, the CNPA Board of Directors asked staff to pursue action to put its 2701 K St. building on the market. 
The organization acquired and refashioned the building near Sutter’s Fort Historic State Park in 2014.

CNPA staff has worked remotely since mid-March. 

Officer titles
The board approved a CNPA bylaw revision to change the officer titles of president to chairperson, president-elect to chairperson-elect and vice president/secretary-treasurer to vice-chairperson/secretary-treasurer. The change enabled the creation of the title of president and chief executive officer. 

Strategic Plan
Directors received a briefing on the three-year CNPA Strategic Plan, which aims to guide the organization’s efforts to support its advocacy, advertising services and events while avoiding deficit spending and planning for profit.

Expanded membership
A dues change to the current Associate Member category aims to invigorate the pool of contributors to CNPA-Member news organizations. This is concurrent to a statewide push for new Active CNPA Members and a retooling of the effort to enlist Allied Members.

Digital communications
Directors reviewed initial plans for website revisions and were reminded about the regular CNPA-Member webinars offered nearly weekly since April.

The future of events
Directors also discussed initial plans to move back scheduled live events pending the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on gatherings.
