2.  Agenda approved as distributed
3.  No public comment
4.  Minutes of March 17, 2009 Board Meeting approved by consensus

5.  Spring classes - update
    Tsui Chang noted that the Spring series of classes is going well. It was suggested that for the next series it would be good to add some hands-on classes since the Training Room computers will be available by then.  Also, a suggested voluntary donation should be considered for each class.

6.  Celebrate Davis! planning
    It was agreed that Kari Peterson should oversee the posters and handouts so that the branding is consistent. Probably three posters will be sufficient: Calendar, DCN by the Numbers, and one that reflects the brochure.
    Anne recommended having name badges done - the sort that sit in a plastic pouch and hang around the neck - with DCN logo, person's name and the words "Ask me about DCN."  Kari should oversee these too since they too need to be consistent with our branding.
7.  Telecomm Comm'n report  (Jim Frame and Kimball Sargeant)
    Kimball will communicate with the Telecommunications Commission City Council Liaison person, Sue Greenwald, about DCN's worry that there has been an incomplete interpretation of the Attorney General's communication regarding conflict of interests on City Commissions.

8.  New Board member recruiting follow-up  (Brian Gegan)
    Brian noted that DCN should get the word out that we are looking for additional board members. DCNews was mentioned as a vehicle as was an article in the Enterprise. No action was taken. Brian mentioned and Anne mentioned the Sacramento NonProfit Resource Center and its BoardLink program. Brian plans to meet with his committee (Kari Peterson and Russ Hobby) to strategize the process and confirm prospects so that initial approaches can be made to some of them.
