Trustees in the driver's seat

I have been learning a thing or two about how things are done in the Blue Building. Currently, the administration sets the agenda for every meeting. Most of the meetings are behind closed doors and Trustees don't meet "on their own". Consequently, there's little or no opportunity for the Trustees to spearhead new ideas, discuss problems or brainstorm. I am fully in support of working meetings for Trustees, where real discussions can take place about issues the Trustees bring forward. As it stands now, the administration is driving the boat and the Trustees are simply passengers.
