Board Meeting

November 24, 2002

The meeting was called to order at approximately 18:11 UT. Those attending: Brent (President, and chairing the meeting); Shirley, Gerard, Jan, Mary, Roger, Stan, Steve.

Agenda Item 1: Minutes of Last Meeting – Approval
- Since there were no comments or questions concerning the minutes of the last meeting, they were considered ratified as correct.
Agenda Item 2: Major Donation – Acceptance Vote
- Motion, made by Mary, seconded by Shirley, THAT: “We accept the donation.” Motion carried unanimously.
- Milly is officially thanked for her donation.
Agenda Item 3: Troubled Times, Inc. Booklet – Discussion
- Mary reported that if we don’t have any more really large orders, we will have enough Booklets to last until some time next year.
- It was agreed that it would probably be a good idea for the Board to keep at least 100 copies on hand at all times, since we may get hit with straggling orders at the last minute.
Agenda Item 4: 800 Number Cancellation – Discussion
- Shirley reported that she had not heard from Cass on this one.
- She informed Cass that the cancellation was an official “go”, and assumed that it had been done and the final bills sent to Nancy.
- Having heard nothing since, though, she will check on it and report back to the Board via email.
Agenda Item 5: Server Project – Discussion
- Since there were no questions, no discussion was held re this report.
Agenda Item 6: Server Project – Discussion and Vote
- Brent is still looking into co-location of the server, and into cable ISP, rather than DSL.
- When all of this has been resolved, software will be loaded and other questions re domains and such finalized.
Agenda Item 7: Ongoing Projects – Discussion
- Acreage Project: Roger gave his report concerning the progress of the Acreage Project, and pointed out that there would be a lot of work for Roger and Stan next spring, in order to get the soil to optimum condition.
- Short Wave Radio Project: The report is a link off the agenda, and there were no questions or comments.
- Seed Team Update: Seed distribution has begun and is continuing as planned.

The meeting was adjourned at approximately 19:15 UT, with the President’s reminder that there will be no Board meeting next month
