Reports, Discussion & Decisions

Election Committee

The election committee wiki is still down, so Eric sent a copy of last years instructions to the board, so that progress can continue while the wiki is fixed. [It was fixed shortly afterwards.]

Treasurer Status

Stuart sent the replacement check for Matt's XDS sponsorship to Keith for cosigning. Alex is waiting for Stuart to provide the updated financial data for the 501(c)3 conversion that incorporates the XDS 2010 expenses and funding.

Logo replacement

Matt Dew looked into some existing sites that provide infrastructure for design contests and provided information to the board. A discussion was held on whether a small payment was actually less incentive than no payment. So far no one seems to be passionate enough about replacing the logo to drive forward, so if no one comes forward, we may let the matter drop and stick with the existing one.
