7. Jason Best meeting recap (Steve McMahon) 

In Steve's absence it was reported by others who had attended the lunch meeting with Jason, on Friday, April 8, that there was a very pleasant conversation with the City of Davis' new IT Director. Jason had little knowledge or understanding about DCN and seemed pleased to be 'put in to the picture.'


8. Internet History Project (Bill Buchanan)

The idea for this video history project about the birth, growth, significance and impacts of DCN had been brought forward b Bill some weeks ago. Today he circulated a rough draft of the idea and asked for questions and comments. The board's interest and enthusiasm was apparent and several people came up with new leads, interesting information and insights into the history and the early participants. The next step is to touch base with other people and groups who might be interested in the project to provide informational input or be able to work on it in some capacity.  Bill will make a start on this and report back on responses.


9. Celebrate Davis (Sheila Evans)

Sheila reported that she will be submitting the application and fee. The new banner is probably ready and could be used even before the Celebrate Davis event. A Theme Poster is needed - featuring volunteers.  The OPC will pull all of this together.
