Reports are trickling in about the Interim Meeting session of Philadelphia YM last Saturday (April 9), when the budget with the staff layoffs was brought forward. What I’ve heard so far is that all went quietly, decisions were put off for a couple of months, but it sounds like the deal will be done, and the pink slips issued. This is not surprising, as none of the dissidents have as yet offered any other way out of the million-dollar deficit the new budget and its layoffs will undertake to close.
I’ll be interested to hear more. But for now, we’ll turn to other matters.
