Board of Directors Meeting
Doubletree Portland Hotel
February 7, 2011

ATTENDING: Several people stayed over from the Annual General Meeting–including all of the Board members: Arthur Aldridge, Beverly Block, Aaron Curtis, Rick Lindsley, Tammy Lindsley, John Lorentz, Andrew Nisbet, D. Stephen Raymond, Debra Stansbury and Marc Wells; as well as ex-officio members Debbie & Paul Wrigley (Petrey Fund) and Jim Fiscus (Endeavour Award and Clayton Fund).

The meeting was called to order at 8:39.

I. Minutes of Previous Meeting

The minutes from the last week's (January 30, 2011) special meeting haven't been prepared yet.

II. Election of OSFCI Officers

The current officers were nominated:

There being no other nominees, these people were re-elected by acclamation.

III. New Business
A. Banning Policy

The Board discussed the new banning policy that may or may not have been adopted about a decade ago. (The minutes from that period are not clear on what, if anything, was adopted, but it's likely that the original policy adopted in the late 80's or early 90's has been superceded.)

Debra: Maybe we need to set up a committee to draft a new policy. Rick: First we should find out if someone has a copy of what was adopted then. Andrew: We need to take care of this before the next OSFCI event (GameStorm, in March). It's possible that Sam Justice (the OSFCI lawyer) might have a copy. Aaron: We need a contingent subcommittee in case he doesn't have a copy. A committee was set up: Tammy, Jim and Andrew. They will draft a policy if Sam doesn't have a copy of the 2002/2003 policy; if he does have a copy, they will look it over to see if there are any suggested changes for the next Board meeting.

B. Other New Business

VI. The Date of the Next Board Meeting

It was decided that the next Board meeting would be Monday, April 25th, here at the Doubletree.

The meeting was then adjourned at 9:08PM, Aaron Cell Phone Time.
