Tomorrow afternoon, former Editor in Chief Polina Marinova and former Managing Editor Julia Carpenter will meet members of The Red & Black’s Board of Directors to reapply for their positions. Heading into that conversation, the former staff has worked to resolve some remaining concerns about transparency, including obtaining the organization’s bylaws — which have not yet materialized. We are hoping to have the bylaws in the morning, prior to Marinova and Carpenter’s meeting with the Board; and that the bylaws will settle several issues regarding student representation and board member term limits. Beyond that, the evening has been spent discussing solutions for the coming weeks: how to lay the foundation for and encourage a candid, active discussion between all parties regarding The Red & Black’s future.
We are confident that the real conversation starts tomorrow.
