April 19, 2003

Lasker and Poggiani were the first to arrive, and spent 15 or 20 minutes in informal discussion of the Publicity campaign.

Then Dorsett came to the meeting, and promised to send in a Treasurer's Report, reflecting the interest paid during the preceding month and the acquisition of the insurance policy.

Mayerle joined us, and the four Board members present continued informal discussion for another half-hour.

The topic of discussion was primarily the lack of attendance at ReadAssist meetings, the lack of ReadAssist projects, and the lack of recruits to handle projects for ReadAssist. Dorsett will write a draft to be considered as a post to various message board Conferences.

This non-quorum non-meeting was adjourned at 3:00 EDT.

The dates proposed for the next three meetings are:

Please note these dates on your calendars and make arrangements to attend.

In the absence of Janet Dailey, these minutes are submitted by Pam Poggiani.

The bank account has a life insurace policy, which comes with a $2,000 survivor's benefit. We get no extra interest if we don't take it, so I did, and named Judith as the beneficiary; with the understanding the money is to go to ReadAssist

Website Report

Very little happening, other than standard upkeep. Improved the look of the logo, though.

Links to - we've lost six, three of them rather important (Analog, dmoz, Bay Area SF Association). I'll investigate next week. But, we've gained four: UK Sprite, Winnipeg Alive, Garden Grow (all link sites), and Google!
