Hooper Institute Educator and Executive Director Job Descriptions: Mrs. Pschirrer is working on the recommended changes to the job descriptions and email them to Mr. Dalessio and Ms. Mayberry.
Joint Meeting: The Joint Meeting of the Hooper Trustees and Hooper Institute Board will be held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 7:00 PM in the Town Hall. Mrs. Pschirrer noted they have to talk about money because the question is can they afford to hire two people; how do they manage that on the Hooper Institute budget. The two positions are needed if the Trustees expect them to move forward, offer more programs, renovate the building, etc. Mr. Dalessio said there is a question of timing; which position do they fill first. He would like to see a woodworking program. Mrs. Clark will take care of it this summer but going forward they will need an instructor. A recommendation is to put all these ideas on the table and ask for feedback. Mrs. Pschirrer mentioned the NH Office of Charitable Trusts has Express Grants but they are very specific. If they are successful in getting and using a grant the Office of Charitable Trusts, they encourage the recipient to apply for a larger grant that is spread over three years. Mr. Dalessio feels they also have the opportunity to approach local businesses to ask them to support the intern and summer programs. They have to work on the framework to do that and implement theirideas.
Ms. Mayberry moved to adjourn this Hooper Trustees meeting. Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer. With Ms. Mayberry, Mrs. Pschirrer and Mr. Dalessio in favor, the meeting was adjourned at 8:00 PM.
