Minutes of the April 2010 PASS Board Meeting Published

This was a phone meeting on April 8th, 2010, that covered:

  • Possibility of an online track at the 2010 PASS Summit
  • Discussion of changes to by-laws (term limits and others)
  • Possible formats of Spring 2011 event (East coast)

You can read the full minutes here (login required):

We have a meeting on May 13th to talk more about the format of the Spring event. As you’ll see in the minutes I proposed an alternative to the conventional format, something both lower cost and more grass roots feel. Since then I invested a lot of time in describing what that event might look like and how much it might cost, with a lot of help from Jack Corbett & Kendal Van Dyke (yes, it has an Orlando bias for now).

Good idea? Don’t know yet. We’re going to evaluate three different approaches on Thursday and decide on next steps.

Why no details yet? Mainly because it takes some time to make sure proposals are accurate. We’re a bit leery of posting a plan/rate that later turns out to be undoable, want it to be fairly solid. We have leveraged our PASSCAB group for input on the idea, so we’re not totally isolated on our thoughts.

Sharing what I can, more soon!
