5.  Vista Report
    Rian reported briefly on the Volunteer Handbook that she has been creating. She tested it during a 'get acquainted session' with a new intern and it seemed to work well. The intern especially appreciated learning about DCN's history as an organization.  Jim Frame is editing the material to make sure it is expressed in the 'same voice' throughout.

7. DCN re-branding report
    Kari taped some butcher paper notes on the white-board and distributed several handouts. Using these she outlined the progress to date of the creation of a DCN logo, tagline and core message. While the board members did not agree with every word used in all of the documents they were very pleased with the progress.  Kari will make the logosavailable for consideration and comment through Tuesday Jan 8th, which is the deadline for any comments to be sent to her.  The OPC will then review the comments and prepare a recommendation to be presented to the Board at its January 21 meeting.

8. Database update report
    Kari reported for Vicki that a productive meeting had been held to clarify the issues so that the Salesforce database will have standardized fields capable of being assembled as needed for DCN's various needs.  The UCD intern for this project has delayed his participation until the new year.
