Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On March 12, 2019, the Board directed staff to evaluate the feasibility of providing business cards to members of Board of Supervisors designated boards, committees and commissions.

On April 9, 2019, the Board directed staff to return to the Board with feedback from Department Heads as to implementing this program

Staff returned to the Board on May 21, 2019 and provided the Board with the concerns expressed from Department Heads. The Board discussed the matter further and took the following action:
1) Direct staff to develop a generic business card for the use of members of boards, committees, and commissions;
2) Direct staff to develop a countywide policy for the use of generic business cards for members of boards, committees and commission and include in the policy a provision prohibiting members of boards, committees, and commissions from printing their own business cards; and
3) Direct staff to return to the Board for consideration of the policy.

Staff has developed a generic business card (See Attachment A) to be considered by the Board and also a countywide policy for the use of generic business cards (Attachment A) to be considered by the Board.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board may choose not to adopt the policy or provide direction to staff to take other action.
