DECISIONS TAKEN SINCE THE LAST MEETING

1. We voted to eliminate the 05:00 UTC Board meeting time (see minutes of 6 July 2013 for additional background).

2. We agreed to hold a “documentation month” during which the Board will not take on any new business (except for emergencies) and will intensively focus on reviewing and revising existing Board documentation and creating new documentation. Further details such as the start and end dates, the list of documents to be worked on, a mechanism for obtaining staff and volunteer feedback on the documents as they are drafted, and an internal announcement, will continue to be worked out via e-mail.

OPEN SESSION

This was a working session rather than a normal meeting, because it was the same day as the Board open house chat.

1. Discussion of the draft roadmap for reforming the Board liaison system (see minutes of 29 June 2013 for additional background).

CLOSED SESSION

1. Discussion of Communications video project.

The meeting was adjourned at 01:15 UTC.

Minutes approved by the Board on 12 September 2013.
