Discussion topics

Open Issues List

For Review 20091130:

  • Comments on (Proposed) Revised Strategic Initiatives with example SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed) roadmap tasks - link to listserv entry (must be member of tscadmins)
    • Primary difference is that Roadmap task force was asked to provide short descriptions and SMART tasks. Shifted order around a little bit. Added word ‘global’ that while we support national initiatives we are a global standards organization. This is the direction in which Bob will be pushing the organization for the next couple of years and there will be ties to funding.
    • Maintenance process for Strategic Initiatives and Roadmap Tasks is being added into the GOM.
    • Roadmap Task Force will become an official Board committee anticipated for December/January.

Briefly looked at January agenda. Woody move to adjourn, Helen Second, adjourned at 11:27 am.
