Approved November 18, 2008

Davis Community Network
October 21, 2008
5:30 - 6:12  p.m.
1210 Hemlock Lane, Davis

This meeting, called as a regular monthly board meeting, did not gather a quorum of members so these are unofficial notes, based on the agenda, of the conversations between those gathered.

Members present (7): Tsui Chang, Jim Frame, Anne Hance, Jan Meizel, Steve McMahon, Kimball Sargeant, Vicki Suter.
(14 active members; quorum = 8)

Members absent (7): Brian Gegan, Rick Guidara, Russ Hobby, Robert Nickerson, Tom Stanionis, Bev Sykes, Richard Yamagata.

Visitor: Dave Zavatson

The September 16, 2008 minutes could not be approved due to the lack of a quorum.

•    Vicki Suter passed round a two-page handout. She brought those in attendance up to speed on the Non-profit Internet toolkit Pilot Project. Three of the six projects are progressing well; one is stalled and one dropped out. The sixth project is DCN and we have a bit of catching up to do in the use of apps like Google docs and we have a lot of work to do on the Salesforce database. Vicki asked Jan to be part of the DCN pilot team to work with her and the volunteer (Alex) who is going to create the Salesforce database.

•    Dave Zavatson, DCN/Omsoft's new Sys Admin, was introduced and he talked a bit about his expertise and mentioned some ways in which he thinks he'll be able to help DCN improve some of its hardware, software, and operational strategies. Jim Frame is adapting the contract that DCN had with Jack Crowell. Kimball will review it.

•    Steve reported about the Web Team that:
o    Tsui has done a great job of a major restructuring of DCN's Community Directory - bringing it into Plone.
o    The Community Calendar is now very active
o    The Elections Website is full of useful information – DCN has thoroughly earned the income it gets from the Elections Office.

•    Jan reported about the RAC that:
o    The last meeting was sparsely attended and a couple of additional members would be an advantage. The "Stckphto" web site of Davis images came up for re-authorization and once again the committee had to consider the issue in light of the fact that the site is now stagnant and this breaks one of the RAC policies.
