Emergency Board of Directors Meeting

August 23, 2007

ATTENDING: (Board members) (Board members) Beverly Block, Aaron Curtis (OSFCI President), John Lorentz (ex-officio BOD member, OSFCI Secretary), Andrew Nisbet III, Michael Pinnick, Debra Stansbury, Patty Wells; Sam Justice (OSFCI Attorney).

Absent Board Members: Arthur Aldridge (out of town, left before the meeting was scheduled), Mark Burns, Linda Pilcher (work conflicts)–proxy given.

The meeting started at 7:33PM.


This meeting was called by the OSFCI President and Secretary, at the request of several other members, under section VIII.C. of the OSFCI Bylaws, in order to discuss the current status of OryCon.

At the suggestion of John Lorentz, the Board appointed itself as a special sub-committee, and recessed the Board meeting to conduct a "committee-of-the-whole" meeting.

The special sub-committee meeting adjourned at 9:01PM, with the report that "a vigorous discussion of OryCon ensued."

Michael: A question of the current vacancy on the Board–can this be used to extend Debra’s term to a full two-year term? No, the Board can only appoint someone until the next annual meeting. It was decided not to discuss filling the Board vacancy until the next regular Board meeting.

The Board of Directors meeting adjourned at 9:01PM, Aaron's phone time.
