City Computer Lab, A Street, Davis, CA

1. Call to Order 5:20 p.m. by President Kimball Sargeant

2. The agenda was approved by consensus

3. Public comment: None

4.  The  minutes of the 5/18/10 regular board  meeting  were approved by consensus 

5. Notifications of Service Outage.  The board considered  a proposal to post notifications of DCN service outages on the DCN website (if unaffected by the outage) and Facebook.  The initial  notification would have to come from  Omsoft  staff via  phone  or  text to a pool of volunteers (identified  as Teri,  Tsui,  Russ  and  Jim) who would  then  post  to  the available  sites.   Jim  will contact  Rob  to  discuss  the matter.

6.  Website update.  Tsui voiced the urgent need to move the DCN  website to Plone 3 so that revisions can be more easily accomplished,  noting  that  the  current  site   makes   it difficult  to use valuable marketing tools.  She  identified the need to meet with Steve and Kari to restart this effort, which  got  derailed due to the many layers of communication involved.

7.   City  of  Davis  Media Grant.  Discussed  in  executive session.

8.   Board  Recruitment.  Kimball, Tsui and Jim reported  on the  meeting  with Kim Wallace, principal of DSIS  and  King High.   The  meeting  covered areas of mutual  interest  and identified some potential collaborative projects between the school   district   and  DCN.   Kim  will  consider   formal involvement with DCN, but made no commitment in light of her busy  schedule.  Brian will follow up in a week.  Brian also reported that he has not succeeded in contacting Gary  Sandy or  Mabel Salon to followup on the meeting with them.   Russ reported  that he will contact Dan Woo (not sure of spelling - ed.) about serving on the board. 

9.   July Board Meeting.  Kimball noted that we may  not  be able to raise a quorum for the July meeting.  Kimball polled those present as to their availability, and will contact the remaining members before deciding whether or not to schedule a meeting in July.

10. Committee Reports:

     OPC:  Tsui told the board that both Celebrate Davis and the  DCN  classes have been very successful.  Tsui  and Teri  announced a new social media drop-in class to  be scheduled  for  June 30 in honor of Social  Media  Day. The  class will be promoted via the newsletter, the DCN Facebook page, and the Davis Enterprise. 

     RAC:    Kimball  noted  that  the  Civic  Center   Park Neighborhood  Association has been  granted  a  Mailman list for member communication.

11. Announcements:  none.

12. Adjourned at 6:05 p.m.

Humbly submitted,

Jim Frame
