Conference call schedule

  • Committee felt that due to the size of the division and the current proliferation of conference calls it was not possible at this meeting to schedule a time for the meeting. To address this, the members were asked to:
    • Send in their current conference call schedules
    • Preferred time for call
    • Current time zones of co-chairs to optimize the schedule
  • Following evaluation of the existing call schedules, an initial call will be scheduled, at which, a more routine call schedule will be discussed.
  • To begin development of call agendas, committees will assist in the development of a list of current and planned projects from each member committees.

Determine SD list server subscription policy - "Private" or "Open"

  • Discussion on operation of the SD list server revolved around two primary options
    • 1)"private" then accept "Co-chairs in this SD Only", or
    • 2)"Open to Any Co-chairs"
  • There was no extended discussion on inclusion of committee members to this list as intra-committee discussions were encouraged to continue at the committee level and escalation to the SD would be done as appropriate.
  • List name: domainexperts@lists.hl7.org
    • Will be set up by the end of the WGM

Designate SD representative to Technical Editing Project Advisory Committee

  • Co-chairs were encouraged to discuss participation in this group with their membership and submit names to Austin or Jim before Wednesday Sep 19, 2007.
