The business of the Trustee Meeting included discussions, debates, and decisions on: the HQ building and construction; the King’s College Proposal; additional budget needs for 2016; the Ramsey Estate bequest (Eagle Scout Fund); outreach education; the status of IT enhancements; the digitization of SAR records; the database “big picture”; the Solid Light Project; and the Boston Congress.

After the Solid Light discussion, the trustees voted 44 ayes to 29 nays to move forward with the implementation of the Solid Light Plan; and to only proceed as funds become available, with a goal to raise 10 million dollars for the build-out of the museum by the SAR Foundation Capital Campaign.
