Yay Core team Meetings!


Basically we're going to repeat the agenda from 2005-12-04 since none of it was really resolved last time due to low attendance. Hopefully this will be better attended since people are generally done with finals.


Attendance: Gavin, Nelson, Andy Scudder, Erek, Karen Rustad, Sahal Ansari

New Board of Directors

  • Now features: Nelson, Gavin, Karen, and Elizabeth
    • Fred is being considered for a seat on the board as well
What this means
  • The Board of Directors is the new decision-making body, instead of the core team
  • A majority of its members must approve any course of action before it can be taken
    • This makes a smaller body that is accountable and makes binding decisions, and that can easily be consulted to communicate the intent behind their decisions
  • An even number of members of the board introduces the possibility of tied votes, but this is acceptable for now.
    • Fred may join the board if he is able to stay involved on the national level.
Things for the Board to Do
  • Write the policy documents (mission statement, etc.) that we need.
  • Formalize how new chapters are registered and recognized, including criteria for recognizing chapters.
  • Formalize the rules for choosing board members
  • Hold the first in-person board meeting January 4-7 at Harvard
    • Final drafts for crucial documents will be completed by the end of this meeting
