The NRVC board met at the Sisters of St. Francis in Colorado Springs from October 26-30 and welcomed new board members, Father Toby Collins, C.R., and Sister Kristin Matthes, S.N.D.deN. The main agenda items were as follows.

►  After a three-year process and study, the board ratified a new regional configuration. Over the next year NRVC will transition from 14 regions to 12 member areas. A more detailed explanation will be emailed to members later this week.

►  The board reviewed a detailed financial report and accepted the 2014 annual financial review as presented by Sister Anna Marie Espinoza, I.W.B.S, Finance Committee chair. Wayne Montague, interim director of finance and operations, gave a full-day workshop on accounting and innovative thinking.

►  The planning for the 2016 NRVC convocation is well underway under the competent oversight of Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M. The convocation is scheduled for October 26-31 and will be held at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel at the Convention Center in Overland Park, Kansas. Our theme is "Awakened by the Spirit, A Call to Discipleship." More details regarding the convocation speakers and program will be announced later this month.

►  The board elected a new Executive Committee for a two-year term. The NRVC officers are Brother Ronnie Hingle, S.C., chair; Sister Anita Quigley, S.H.C.J., vice-chair; and Brother Tom Wendorf, S.M., secretary-treasurer.

►  As a follow-up to the NRVC-CARA study Incorporating Cultural Diversity in Religious Life, the board approved the establishment of a Cultural Diversity Committee. In addition, board members also approved establishing committees to review the current NRVC Curriculum and Code of Conduct for updating.

The next NRVC board meeting will be May 1-5, 2016.
