Meeting Minutes

  • Board of Directors
    • Number of directors
      • Obvious agreement to keep an odd numerical value to the total positions on the board
      • Reminder to stay within the parameters of our charter draft: minimum of five (5), maximum of nine (9)
      • Discussed adding an additional spot on the Board of Directors
        • Pros: an additional position could add representation of the community (i.e. the developers)
        • Cons: the total would increase to six (6) which can complicate voting by the Directors
        • The Directors can always decide later if they need additional expertise and if so, elect a qualified individual to join the Directors
  • Tentative Voting Process for the Director of the Implementer Community
    • Finalize the list of nominees who are specific to this community
    • Contact and receive an acceptance of that nomination
    • Establish a voting process
      • Making an announcement to the community about the nominees and provide a week or so to vote online or via e-mail
      • Open voting at the Implementers Meeting
      • Make the final announcement of the elected individual at the Implementers Meeting
  • Suggestions
    • Legal and accounting - have a board member with experience in these elements, preferably specific to the nonprofit sector
      • These are to be covered by the Treasurer as well
