The oath of office will be administered to new four-year board members Anna Manecke, Dave Wall and Jenny Frenzel. They will be joined by two-year members Justin Hoover and Julie Laitala — who were already sworn in at a Dec. 19 regular board meeting — and incumbent Ann Long Voelkner.

The board will review other organizational considerations before adjournment, after which the board will informally meet with cabinet members to ask questions about their respective roles.
