SIGs (Pettrey)

  • Evan met with Nathan Harvey. Nathen is interested in potentially making DevOpsDC the first LOPSA SIG. Evan says they have about 400 members. Our Policy needs a review to see if it is still current.
  • DevOPsDc is better as an affiliate
  • Discussion of what is a SIG. Define difference between a SIG and an Affiliate. General consensus that this doesn't really fit our definition of a SIG.

WiAC Stipend (Disney)

  • I would like LOPSA to match a $750 donation in order to guarantee at least one $1500 stipend for WiAC '13 ($750 commitment by LOPSA). I would also like to pursue a crowd-funding effort to fund a second stipend, which would either increase the stipend to $2000 or provide a second stipend.
  • Motion by Matt that LOPSA commits to match a $750 donation to provide for $1500 stipend for Wiac
  • William second
  • Motion approved.
