The Board approves the objectives and guidelines that direct the investment of operating funds. A redlined version of the investment policy is presented in Attachment A. Financial Institutions require Board authorization to establish custody, trustee and commercial bank accounts. A redlined version of the resolution is presented in Attachment B. The only changes to the Investment Policy and the Financial Institutions Resolution were made to reflect position title changes of key personnel and conform investment manager reporting requirements to current practice.
