2. Agenda approved as distributed
3. No public comment
4. Minutes of December 12 Board Meeting approved by consensus

5. Board nomination committee - deferred until February
Kimball Sargeant explained that because the the Nominations Committee was not expected to be able to complete it's task by this meeting the Executive Committee had approved a deferral of its report and election slate until the February meeting.

A suggestion was made that an advisory committee or board would be advantageous to DCN and could include past board members and others interested in DCN's work but not able to commitee the time to being on a working board. It was agreed that the Executive Committee should take up this issue.

6. Officer nomination committee, election
Jim Frame reported for the officer nominations committee and presented the following slate of officers for election for the one-year officer terms:
President: Kimball Sargeant
Vice President: Steve McMahon
Treasurer: Jim Frame
Secretary: Anne Hance

MOTION: Steve McMahon moved and Vicki Suter seconded
a motion to approve and elect the slate as presented.
The motion was enthusiastically passed by consensus.

7. Rumsey grant report
Kari Peterson (consultant) reported that she met with Karen Charney of the Rumsey Rancheria Foundation and learned that while the grant proposal will go forward to the Foundation Board it is not likely to be approved. The grant was predicated upon working with the Davis daVinci High school and the Foundation typically does not fund schools. It prefers a strong regional impact.

8. GSM intern project - rolled over to Spring
As reported in recent Executive Committee Notes the Graduate School of Management student team project proposed by DCN did not receive sufficient sign-ups and will be offered to students again in the Spring.

9. Work plan - discussion, implementation
Kari Peterson distribute a three-page work plan chart showing projects and point persons or positions; a three-page chart showing committee and working group responsibilities; and a page outlining her projected involvement as consultant to the strategic and work plans.

The list included items that might otherwise have been addressed by the GSM intern group and Anne Hance suggested that the Internet Users Group (IUG) cosponsored by DCN might provide a convenient sampling of the community for a needs/interest assessment.
