Especially noted were his development of the work of the nominations committee and the Board strategic retreats that he enabled.  The Board thanked Brian for his service and wished him well.


6. City Media Grant - brainstorming

Kimball noted that he and Tsui Chang met with Deputy City Manager Kelly Stachowicz and had a productive discussion about the Media Grant and the draft application document.

The proposal will be drafted by the OPC (Outreach and Promotions Committee); it will need to be submitted by the due date of December 10, 2010.


7. Fall Classes Report 

Tsui Chang summarized the progress of the Fall Class Series and noted the several still to come. Participation has been good in most cases although the Web Accessibility class participation was well below expectations. The instructor provided several CDs of the class outline and online resources. These will be given to Sheila Evans (DCN's 'admin') and filed in the DCN office.

Brian said that his chart and other information is on Google Docs and that committee member Russ Hobby has access to these and will continue the committee's work of building up the board with new members who have been identified as possessing skills and experience needed by DCN.  Kari Peterson is the other member of the nominations committee and it was suggested that a third member would be helpful.
