Rob reported that Neustar has recognized DCN as the initial registrant for the domain. Neustar had initially been unable to confirm that and had requested that the City of Davis officially recognize DCN as the registrant.

Yolo ACE Billing

Steve reported that Yolo ACE is open to handle billing for our hosting of and by invoice rather than renegotiation of an MOU. We'll just be billing the hosting expenses and not any of the community activities that were part of the old MOU. Rob will submit some numbers to the board that can be approved by email; Jim will invoice on approval.

Jim reported some discussions researching opportunities for rental in the .edu space, but no other progress.

Jim also let us know that UCD has recently paid for their block rental for the current year.

Rob had put this on the agenda to make sure that we're not missing any administrative requirements during this confusing time. By discussion we confirmed that 990s are submitted regularly by the accountant, city business license fees are paid when invoiced and that Jim has recently done the Secretary of State filing.


Matt joined the meeting at 7:35pm and we went through the current minutes to familiarize him with business done so far.
