All active members are expected to attend and to participate actively in the Inn’s meetings. Two unexcused absences during a program year will be deemed to be a resignation unless the executive committee waives the provision for good cause. Persons who are unable to attend a particular meeting must inform the president prior to the meeting of the reasons for their absence. Absences without advance notice are not excused. Members who desire to be excused from a meeting should telephone Bill Koch at (615) 780-2242.
