April 2011 Board Meeting Minutes

FSP April Board Meeting Minutes, Thursday April 28, 2011

Meeting called to order (finally) at 8:11pm on Skype. Attending: Rich Goldman, Brandon Ross, Cathleen Converse, Jody Underwood, Varrin Swearingen, Louis Calitz, Carla Gericke Post-hoc secretary: Jody

Agenda: 1. Louis steps down from Board The Board accepted Louis’ resignation, with a unanimous vote (5-0-0). The Board thanked him for his service to the Free State Project as a Board member

  1. Carla gets added to Board Unanimous vote to add Carla to the Board. (5-0-0)

Rich Goldman got voted in to be the permanent Chair of the FSP Board (6-0-0)

  1. Whether to enlarge the o-list Board voted unanimously to remove two people (Pete Eyre and Irena Goddard) who have been silent on the O-list, and who have agreed to step down (6-0-0).

Discussion about whether enlarging the O-list would create too much noise. There are currently 15 people on the O-list (minus 2 for the two who just stepped down). Discussion considered whether to expand the O-list to 17 or 20. One argument for making it larger than 15 is that when that number was originally set, there were only five Board members, and now there are seven, who are all on the O-list.

Current members include: Jon M., Brandon, Chris, Carla, Cathleen, Dan, Jody, Keith, Lynn, Rich, Steve, Seth H., Varrin

The Board voted to increase O-list membership to 20 (5-1-0)

  1. Adjustments to the o-list Carla will coordinate with the IT folks about the O-list Someone will ask Seth H and Lynn, who are pretty quiet, to step down if it’s too noisy. The Board voted on inviting Adam & Christine Sloan, Kirk McNeil, Glen Dickey, Bill Domenico, Keith Ammon, Sharon Osborne to the O-list (4-0-2)

Agenda for next time: Set a regular meeting time

Meeting adjourned at 9:04pm.
