New Business

LOPSA's Existence with Frappr

At one point, Tom Perrine created a frappr map for LOPSA members to register themselves with. Frappr appears to be going away on December 31st. The replacement for Frappr is Platial, but there appear to be no tools to import from Frappr to Platial, which would cause us to start this map thing anew.

Options:

Continue with Frappr for one year at the cost of $24.95 (though, it's not clear if everyone on the map has to do this or just hte map owner).

Start a new map on Platial and just send a notice out on the website (and update our link to use the new map location)

Deprecate it and remove it from the website.less a great need arises in the future to reconsider its use.

Group agreed to let Frappr phase out unless need arises to re-visit at a future date.
