The Chair said that the CFO could not be at this meeting because he has to be at the Audit Committee meeting which is
being held at the same time as this meeting.
The Chair noted that the intended agenda for this meeting was the KPFA budget. Some members cannot open the budget
spreadsheet that was sent to the committee, and this afternoon the committee was told about modifications to the KPFA
draft FY14 budget after it had been approved by the KPFA LSB on August 10, 2013.
The Chair asked the committee if, given that the spreadsheet could not be opened by all committee members and that
changes had been made to the budget after KPFA LSB approval and that the committee had only been informed of the changes
this afternoon, the committee should postpone the consideration of the KPFA draft FY14 budget to another meeting date or
if the committee should consider it tonight.

The committee discussed how to proceed.

It was noted that the KPFA draft FY14 budget spreadsheet includes additional tabs which make the spreadsheet larger than
the other stations’ and may affect its ability to be opened in the various versions of spreadsheet software currently in

The committee insisted on spreadsheets that all committee members can open, not .PDF files. The committee agreed to meet
again on the KPFA draft FY14 budget on September 3, 2013.

Adjourned 9:51 PM (ET)
