DECISIONS TAKEN SINCE THE LAST MEETING

  1. We approved two new staff for AD&T.

OPEN SESSION

  1. We discussed potential board meeting times. There is now no time that all 6/7 board members who replied can attend – our best is 5/6, so we propose to alternate between the two options of which person can’t attend. Julia will send a detailed suggestion to the mailing list.
  2. Regarding the blog post schedule, Sanders confirmed that she is still interested in the round-robin format idea, and will co-ordinate with Kristen and Jintian to kick it off.

CLOSED SESSION

  1. We discussed workload and how to document and delegate more.
  2. We discussed some confidential personnel issues.

The meeting was adjourned at 15:45 UTC.

Minutes approved by the board on 4th August.
