Andy's Update on the Call with Mitchell Baker

  • Andy: Mitchell was well prepped by the time she called me. She was busy with Mozilla and turning down offers right and left. Yet she said there was something very special about OpenMRS and hard to refuse opportunity.
  • Andy: I told Mitchell about how MVP uses OpenMRS as outcomes based, and how we chose OpenMRS because of its design and community.
  • Andy: It was a positive experience. She can certainly scale our organization and improve the software.

Paul's Update on the Call with Mitchell Baker

  • Paul: I talked to Mitchell for several months now, and yesterday she agreed to be on the board. It's a testament to the hard work you all have done and the organization.
  • Paul: She had a great conversation with Joe Mamlin at AMPATH.
    Paul: She's fully engaged and providing us advice from her legal counsel at Mozilla. Karl said Mitchell's acceptance is a testament to our work and helping us integrate more into the open source community.

Side Notes:

  • Andy: We need to make sure we put together our operational plans and communicate that to the Board.
  • Hamish: The question coming up is that we've put a lot of time and effort into the framework of the organization, and now it's time to figure out what that organization is going to do. We need to understand the approach to this.

Annual Leadership Meeting

  • Dates are still to be determined: March 1-2 or March 8-9 2012
  • Location: Either New York or Indiana
    • NY Pros: Good for Chris S. to make it since he's traveling the farthest. Great way to engage Columbia University and have them become stronger partners with OpenMRS
    • Indy Pros: Most of the leadership group is in Indy, so that saves $$.
    • NY Cons: Cost of hotels
    • Indy Cons: Annoying to get to because there aren't many, if any, non-stop flights
