Minutes

Mike Milinkovich introduced the full and abridged minutes for the Board meetings of January 21, 2009.  The Board passed the following resolution unanimously:

RESOLVED, the minutes and abridged minutes for the Board meeting of January 21 2009 are approved.

EclipseCon Update

Mike Milinkovich asked all Board Members to do what they can to sponsor EclipseCon, send people to the conference and encourage others to go.  Mike further indicated that the content at this year’s EclipseCon is one of the best we’ve ever had.   Mike took the action item to circulate to Board Members the banners for EclipseCon for their use in advertising the conference.   The Board discussed the possibility that the number of attendees might be lower than previous years and what message, if any would be conveyed if this were to occur.  It was determined that any such message would be discussed at the March Board meeting once the final numbers were in.  It was suggested that at the June Board Meeting, the Board should discuss EclipseCon and Eclipse Summit Europe from a strategic and structural perspective to determine how we mitigate risk in this economic climate.
