DECISIONS TAKEN SINCE THE LAST MEETING
None.

OPEN SESSION
1. We have worked out a solution for insurance for the new servers for the Archive and anticipate being able to move ahead with purchasing them very shortly. They should be up and running before the next fundraising drive.
2. Discussed a request from Development & Membership to shift the dates of the spring fundraising drive to either May 1-6 or 15-20. DevMem is not in a position to run another drive without a functioning fundraising database and does not anticipate having all the bugs worked out in the move to external hosting in time to run the drive in April. Board endorsed both sets of prospective dates, with the final decision to be made at DevMem’s discretion.

CLOSED SESSION
1. Finished the vote to approve the Election Chair position description that was submitted to Board earlier this month.
2. Meeting with the AD&T Chair and a member of the Legal committee to discuss details of and revisions to the AD&T proposal for a coding contractor for the Archive in 2015. AD&T will revise the proposal to provide additional details and to meet certain Board stipulations; it will then be reviewed by Board and Legal.

The meeting was adjourned at 16:40 UTC.
Minutes approved by the Board on 3 February 2015.
