T3F - Transitional Technical Task Force
Tuesday June 5, 2007 12:00 PM (US Eastern Time, GMT -5)
Beeler, Jaffe, Parker
Since we failed to reach quorum, these are not minutes, but rather notes of our discussions.
We were surprised to receive Berndt's note, and wish him a speedy recovery. Some suggested he should consider closing his laptop while in the hospital!
Noted that the TSC Election material was sent out yesterday. At this point, each T3F member should compile a list of persons they think should be candidates for SD representatives and then seek to get them nominated. Each nomination pool should include at least four candidates. This is not a T3F activity, but activity by "interested individuals" to assure a solid TSC.
Meetings in Atlanta
Agreed to schedule the SD Meetings for 8:30-9:30 (immediately following TSC meeting). The purpose is to allow the groups to become acquainted, set a conference call schedule, and otherwise "get organized".
"New" TSC Convenor
Discussed that the new TSC will be meeting for the first time, and will not have a Chair. Agreed that it would be better that the Chair election not be rushed. The ideal would be for the group to agree on a nomination and voting process in Atalanta, and then carry that out after the WGM, rather than try to do the whole thing while still recovering from the fact that they were elected.
To that end, we will need a "convenor" to run the TSC meetings in Atlanta. Agreed to have Woody Beeler confer with John Quinn to see if John wishes to take on this role.
