4. The minutes of the 8/16/11 regular board meeting were approved by consensus


5. Fall Classes – report (Tsui Chang)

Two classes have already been held. One in the City Training Room and the other (Cutting the Cable) in the Senior Center Valente Room. Tsui noted that the Valente is a nice room but has no fixed screen so the main Activity Room will be a better choice another time if it is available.

Discussion followed about the lower than expected enrollment for the upcoming classes.  Teri had spoken with the Enterprise Editor Debbie Davis to learn the best ways of communicating with the paper for best results. This information is to be shared with Sheila Evans who handles the publicity. 


6. Internet History Project (Bill Buchanan) 

Bill explained that although this is an exciting and worthwhile project it does depend entirely upon committed volunteer effort and time over a longish time period so we don't know yet specifically what can be accomplished. The next, upcoming, step is an interview with Russ Hobby.This should be happening very soon.


7. Committee reports 


RAC: No meeting this month but one request for a Mailman List for the Davis Crush sports group was approved by committee email vote. There is one recent outstanding request for a Mailman List for Pioneer Elementary School.  

The question was raised about the RAC regular meeting date since the meetings have been irregular over the summer. Anne Hance (RAC Committee member) will confirm with Committee Chair Jan Meizel that the regular date is the third Monday of each month.

Board members all receive the RAC web-form requests for DCN resources and it was agreed that any board member with helpful information about any application should communicate this to the RAC Chair.


OPC: Communications have been mostly by email over the summer. The committee's several projects are all going ahead as planned. It was suggested that the City Grant speadsheet be modified to show how expenses are proceeding.


8. Announcements  - none


9. The meeting was adjourned at 5:56 p.m.
