> tracking tools that can be used by committees.  Committee chairs will be
> expected to report on their committee’s progress at every full board
> meeting.  Each director is expected to chair or be vice-chair of at least
> one committee.  A two-year term limit is proposed for leading a committee.
> It is hoped that the chair and vice chair will have terms overlapping by a
> year, with each chair mentoring the current vice-chair to enable them to be
> chair the next year.  We plan to use the GI financial dashboard in this year
> for all board members to be able to view financial status on an ongoing
> basis.  Don reinforced our existing policy that unless there is a good
> reason for discussions to occur on the private board list, that they should
> happen on the public list.  In response to a question by Chris, Mike Jones
> restated the existing policy that people need not be on the board to be on
> committees, or indeed, to chair them.

> The board discussed the joint steering committee’s recommendation to form a

> identity protocols.  The Information Card Foundation voted to approve this
> recommendation earlier this month.  Brian moved and Tony seconded a motion
> to approve the committee’s recommendations, which call for establishing an
> independent certification organization called the Open Identity Exchange
> (OIX).  The motion carried with 4 abstentions.
