June 6, 2004

Lasker, Dailey, Mayerle, Demarce, Kirby and Boyes arrived on time. Lasker declared a quorum at 2:00 CDT. Dorsett showed up later.

Lasker asked for status of the autographed ROF. Authors who have signed- Flint, Demarce, Dorsett, Donahue, Dennis and Pedersen. It should be on its way to Washburn in PA now. I gave Dennis his address on May 29. Expect it to come back to Dorsett to get Wentworth and Lackey at Conestoga July 16. Then he sends it to Leon Jester to get Weber (Coordinated post-meeting by Demarce), at Libertycon July 23. From there it should go to Jones in FL, then Cresswell in Canada, next Allen/Turner in CO. I'm having difficulty in making contact with SL Viehl. Boyes will end up with it to put it up on ebay. We've been doing this since Feb. Boyes will also followup with Freer to get a bookplate from him.

Boyes reported that there was no new information on the Clarion Scholarship. He'll may be able to give us an update next month.

Dailey will talk with Poggiani about the status of getting an ad for ReadAssist in the back of an upcoming Baen book. Will report any information next month.

Dailey suggested that each board member write up a POSITION DESCRIPTION. We'll post it to the website, after they're approved. They will be helpful when recruiting new board members. Everyone should take a look at all of them. Please try to have your description sent to Dailey before the July meeting. These are the positions and members writing them:

Cedeno suggested that we change webhosters (see below). Dailey moved that we let him change webhosters. Mayerle seconded. Passed.

Lasker suggested that we try to meet on alternate Saturday/Sundays. Next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, July 10, 2005 at 2:00 CDT (12:00 noon Pacific and 3:00 Eastern).

This meeting was adjourned at 2:49 CDT.

Committee Reports

Webmaster

Cheaper than what we are paying now . .

Just in case I get no answer in time to make the meeting, here is my input: I have tried a new web hosting company, 1&1, and like them. With OK, I will move site there, will add a counter to the main page, and have a guest book set up, with Poggiani to OK or ask for edits, etc, as usual. They also supply a small chat, and I will set it up so that we may test it (on a page not linked to other pages).

Since it is a bit after 2, I'm gonna go back to sleep now. Please reply with OK and questions or comments.
