About Jimmy's Corner Officers and Committees Finances Record of Meetings Activities

September 17, 2005

Lasker declared no quorum at 3:05 PDT but the meeting proceeded subject to consent of the remaining board members on actions taken.

The following members were present in the ReadAssist Chatroom:

  1. Poggiani stopped by before the meeting to let us know that she wouldn't be available for the meeting. The coomputer systems were being shut down. She wanted to bring up getting the email system working for the webscription application. We need the email system working before the webscription application is operational. Also, Poggiani sent updated webpages to the webmaster to post soon.
  2. The website is back up! Official thanks to Keith, Jody and Evan.
  3. DeMarce had sent an email to the board saying that she didn't have time for ReadAssist, due to increased family responsibilities, but consented to remain on the board. Lasker changed her status to an inactive member, for the near future.
  4. The next items were approved unanimously by the board members present, but since there wasn't a quorum these items must be approved by the remaining members of the board. Please email Judith immediately with your vote.
  5. Dailey received an email from Andrew Dennis, who had previously said that he was sending a replacement copy of Ring of Fire. The idea was to get all the authors to autograph it and then auction it off as a fund raiser. The first copy got lost in the mail. The second, insured copy, didn't get tracked down soon enough for the insurance to be used. We've going thru 3 copies, so far. Dailey will send out bookplates to get autographs for future projects with SASEs. Walt bought a copy and will be seeing Dave Freer in November. Dailey will send signed bookplates to Walt.
  6. Dailey did get positive feedback from Eric on doing the RA blub in the back of an upcoming book.
  7. Next meeting will be on SATURDAY, October 22, 2005, 12 NOON PDT, ReadAssist Chatroom (set up by Dailey).
