Our time is valuable on the calls and I think some of these can be
done via email.

> 1. Give a Customer Research Committee update

Can you do this via email?

> 2. Make a motion to charter the Content Provider Advisory Committee
> 3. Make a motion that the OIDF executive committee create and maintain a
> work plan for the foundation.
> 4. Ask -- again -- where our financials are.

Bill has given several updates on this - we're almost there; the
format they passed it along in was not thorough enough ... he's going
back one more time.  Bill may not make the call though as he has some
prior obligations.

That said, your request is noted here.

> 5. Go through all the chartered committees one by one and get an update on
> what has happened since the last BOD meeting, and what is expected to happen
> from now to the next BOD meeting

Couldn't we just do this via email ahead of time?

We have the following:
