A Regular Meeting of the Board of Directors of DACS was held at the Resource Center (RC) on Monday, February 12. Present were Messrs. Bovaird, Buoy, Neary, Ostergren, Pearson and Setaro, a quorum. President Ostergren presided and Secretary Buoy kept the record of the meeting. The minutes of the meeting held January 8, 2001 were approved.
Treasurer Charles Bovaird reported combined checking account balance, CDs and postal account balances of $22,210.38 plus postage on hand of $103.13, a total of $22,313.51, less prepaid dues of $8,098.00 for a net of $14,215.51. He also reported current membership of 526.
The Board then discussed programming of future General Meetings. Suggestions included involvement by DACS members, particularly SIG leaders, Linux , Filemaker Pro and Apple for the vacant General Meeting slots in July and August. Don Neary will join the Program Committee to seek candidates for future presentations.
Jeff Setaro announced that passwords had been obtained from three additional radio stations to enable DACS to arrange last-minute snow cancellation notices. He also distributed a list of the media for publishing in dacs.doc and on the DACS Web Site.
After a brief discussion of the ongoing lease arrangements for the RC, the subject of replacing the current computer at the RC was again raised, and Treasurer Bovaird was authorized to purchase same through Amsys Computer for a negotiated amount not to exceed $2,500.
President Ostergren advised the meeting that the date of the annual InterGalactic meeting for the year 2000 had been tentatively fixed for April 28. He suggested that those contemplating attendance consider DACS participation therein so that timely arrangements could be made.
The meeting was also advised that there was a conflict in the availability of the Danbury Hospitals auditorium for the March General Meeting (which meeting will be on Tuesday, March 6), but that subsequent meetings appeared to be firm. A discussion of alternative sites ended with the consensus to continue to seek use of Danbury High School in case of future scheduling conflicts.
A true record.
