Records in this series were created by former NYRR President/CEO Mary Wittenberg and consist of correspondence and memoranda; reports; speeches; talking points; as well as her personal copies of NYRR Board of Directors meeting minutes and supplemental materials.
The bulk of the board materials date from 2000-2015 and consist of supplemental materials, which typically contain an agenda, minutes of the previous meeting, correspondence, budgets, recent media coverage, and reports on topics of discussion. Many of the records also contain Mary Wittenberg’s notes and annotations. Other records include meeting minutes and notes for Board committees, including the Audit Committee and Executive Committee. Board records in this series are not comprehensive, and official board meeting minutes can be found in NYRR 10: Governance Records.
The bulk of this series consists of Mary Wittenberg’s subject files, dating from 2005-2015, and document her daily work as NYRR President/CEO.
