- Dan asked about using Skype for conference calls because of problems with folks dialing in and if we want to make this a public meeting, we cannot see who is online. Derek wondered if we should pay for a service as we are saving a lot of money. Matt and William offered the idea of using their work conference call service. Dan noted that if they leave the board, that is a problem. Derek reviewed services 2 years ago and will check into a refreshed quote to see the costs.
