ADJOURNMENT

Meeting was called to order at 10:25am by President Johnson and this was second by Secretary Taylor.
Prayer: was done by Deputy Chaplin Gayle

Introduction:

Secretary Taylor introduced himself then asked the members of the group to introduce themselves and their portfolios, this was after Gov Wallen inquire of the whereabouts of the president who was noticeably absent from the table without an explanation. at this stage the group was out of integrity and again the meeting was not started on time. Gov. Wallen seeks to get some redress on this issue. Eng. Barrett took responsibility for misleading the secretary on the time of the meeting both Eng. Barrett and Eng. Lewis assured the meeting that they would take responsibility for making sure that this error does not reoccur. The time noted for meeting was 10:00am and not 10:30 as was thought by members of the group Gov. Wallen then introduced David Susaki and Georgia Poepawell who were from Harvard and of global voices.

Opening Comments:

Gov. Wallen stated his dissatisfaction on the repeated late start of meetings, there were no reason for this however, the explanations were already accepted, and the meeting moved on.
Apologies: were made for Dir. Paulwell

We went on air at 111:00am aunty Caleen took over as host of the SET CHAT program. She said she wanted to talk about fathers, and what role they play in the family; what have the fathers put in place to make sure the family stays in place. SET members took turns and gave their views on the subject. We went on a break and Gov. Wallen took the time to talk to the group about the two people who were trained in the studio he said people were going to be trained how to develop their radio program.
