Reports, Discussion & Decisions

Election Committee

Alex's proposed schedule was approved by the election committee, and the elections mailing list was updated today to reach the correct set of members. Alex volunteered to chair the committee and handle the mailing of announcements. Matthias is working on preparing the database for the voting software.

Treasurer Status

Alex asked about the 5 years of financial data needed for 501(c)3 paperwork. Stuart still has not received the electronic dongle to access our accounts online, so has not been able to complete it. Keith reported that even with access, he can only access the last year online.

Alex raised the issue of needing a fixed postal address for this paperwork. After discussion about logistics of renting a PO Box somewhere, Stuart volunteered his home address for a 5 year period.

Alex reported he had paid $50 for the Delaware Corporate Franchise Fees for 2009 & 2010. Stuart said he'd write the check to reimburse Alex and forward to Keith for cosigning.

Stephane Marchesin asked if the Google funding for Summer of Code Mentor Summit travel had arrived so that the mentors could be reimbursed. Since Stuart could not check the accounts electronically, Alan suggested the Foundation just go ahead and reimburse the mentors, since the Foundation can better afford to wait for funds to arrive than the individual mentors can.
