Board & Committee Meetings

GRRL Board & committee meetings are governed by GRRL Bylaws to facilitate orderly and effective meetings in which to conduct the business of the Board of Trustees.

All persons desiring to address the Board during the forum must sign up at the meeting. Comments are limited to 2 minutes maximum per person.

Persons with disabilities who plan to attend and will need assistive services should contact the Administrative Assistant three business days prior to the meeting at 320-650-2500.
