"We would have loved to have a quorum today"

I'll bet.

The Milwaukee Public Museum continues to make negative news. Dave Umhoefer has the story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The promised release this week of a long-overdue internal Milwaukee Public Museum audit - expected to show a much larger 2004 deficit than previously disclosed - was delayed Thursday as transition problems dogged the institution.

An audit committee of the museum board failed to get a quorum, and a top official balked at signing off on the audit amid concern about taking responsibility for the acts of previous administrators.
So, it may be a $5.4 million drop in assets instead of a $2 million drop, but a couple of the Audit & Finance Committee members had other commitments, so we still don't know.

This does not sound like a routine meeting for Audit & Finance Committee members to skip. They undoubtedly had good reasons, but I continue unimpressed with the Board. Should the Milwaukee Public Museum find Board members who are committed to having fewer commitments?
