Term of agreement: Recommend that the agreement be for two
years minimum, not the 12 months outlined in the agreement.
OASIS will support one at large seat for CGM Open on its Board
of Directors until such time as the funds transfer is complete.
However, OASIS does not support the at large seat indefinitely,
as is currently outlined in the agreement. Rather, OASIS recommends
that CGM Open nominate for election one of its members.
The agreement currently states that disputes would be resolved
in the state of MD. OASIS recommends that it should be PA
or DE, in which either of the 2 organizations are currently
6(d) This clause should be changed to more closely reflect
the original proposal Appendix A:
"general cross-technology activities, as well as for infrastructure
and overhead costs."

Extending Norbert's Term/Filling the 8th Board position
with a 12-month assignment Discussion of whether to extend
Norbert's term, thereby bringing it to the membership for
vote. Or to simply have Norbert run for re-election.
Possibility of appointing CGM Open representative in this
12-month assignment. Since the Board had voted to extend the
term during its last meeting (see minutes), so the matter
will be sent for vote to the membership.
ACTION: LW to draft an email with a proposal for extending
the CTO term; send to Board for approval; then send out to
membership for vote. Sentiment as follows: "board wants to
take positions to 8 as allowed by the bylaws. we also want
to have 4 positions turn over at each election. make the board
more effective, better represent the organization." Make sure
ballots go to voting representatives of member organizations.
