  • Treasurer's report
    • Things are good. We did get a lot of $32 reduced rate memberships. We should be able to cover the Director expenses for the face to face meeting. Directors have the option of donating their expenses to LOPSA.
  • Membership report
    • Do have a lot of pending memberships where people said they would pay later, but never did. Dan is contacting them and cleaning them up.
    • 91 lapsed members last quarter, 44 since 1-Jul (two of the lapsed from last quarter have renewed since last meeting)
    • Total up 73 members from last meeting - due to the discount and the Serverfault members
