Meeting Minutes

  • Board of Directors
    • Number of directors
      • Obvious agreement to keep an odd numerical value to the total positions on the board
      • Reminder to stay within the parameters of our charter draft: minimum of five (5), maximum of nine (9)
      • Discussed adding an additional spot on the Board of Directors
        • Pros: an additional position could add representation of the community (i.e. the developers)
        • Cons: the total would increase to six (6) which can complicate voting by the Directors
        • The Directors can always decide later if they need additional expertise and if so, elect a qualified individual to join the Directors
