MOTION: (Kizer) Second (Palmer) To appoint Trucks as tech team liaison; passes without objection

  • Upcoming MtM (last meeting of the month only)

Template up; not much content yet - need mention of OLF, LISA (new section "Upcoming Events")


  • The consensus at last meeting was that the Committees policy should be altered to eliminate the laundry list and instead make the policy reflect the Board's philosophy on committees, specifically on the purpose and makeup of board-level versus program committees.

Board Committees

  • Finance committee: Bob joins Steve and Matt
  • Partnership and Development committee: looking for a chair
  • Policy committee: housekeeping activity, no need for standing committee
  • Communications: reconvene with Chris as chair
  • Membership development: chaired by Jesse

Program committees

  • AI: For all liaisons: find chair, develop charge
  • Rename Online Services Committee to Technical Services Committee and appoint Jesse Trucks as Board liaison
  • Awards: refocus on developing awards, David as liaison
  • Conference Planning: need a more strategic focus than previously, Matt as liaison
  • Locals: Bob as liaison
  • Content Services: Chris as liaison
  • Volunteer Services: Lufthans?
  • Crossbow: (Training)

Potential: Public policy (try and get TAL to chair), what about Marketing (can it be Marketing/Communications), Ethics/Professional Responsibility (AI: Steve to think about)

New Business

First new item...


Trey to miss next (9/11); Phil to chair next meeting
