On February 5th the nine member BIRHC Board of Directors held a special meeting to review a number of financial and policy matters. Among the action items discussed were:
- Signing a two year software maintenance contract for the Center’s computer system with Common Angle of Petoskey, MI;
- Initiating a Pre-Employment Background Verification Policy for all professional positions and positions where personnel handle funds;
- Recommending the Board’s Finance Committee develop a best practice policy concerning purchasing protocols. The procedures envisioned are expected to be similar to those used by Peaine and St. James townships.
In addition, the Board accepted an invitation to meet this spring with Chip Hansen, the President of the Charlevoix County Community Foundation via zoom. Board members received a brief update on the work of several Ad Hoc committees working on such matters as the creation of a Good Samaritan Fund and a Patient Satisfaction Survey. The meeting concluded with an announcement that donations to the Health Center may now be made online as a result of the installation of a PayPal “button” on the “Ways to Give Page” of the Center’s website.
The next scheduled meeting of the Board is in May 2021.
Frank D’Andria is the chair of the BIRHC Board.
