Nat Sakimura
George Fletcher
Mike Jones
John Bradley

John Ehrig, Global Inventures
Adam Dawes, Google

1.       Working Group Meetings before IIW
Google has reserved space for meetings before IIW.  The current planned agenda is:
11:30-12:30 Lunch together
12:30-3:00 OpenID Connect Working Group
3:00-5:30 Native Applications Working Group
Adam will find out shortly whether Account Chooser also wants time as well.  If so, our agenda could become:
11:30-12:30 Lunch together
12:30-2:30 OpenID Connect Working Group
2:30-3:30 Account Chooser Working Group
3:30-5:30 Native Applications Working Group
We need to publicize this information soon so people can book their flights accordingly.

2.       Backplane Exchange
Don went to Janrain in Portland to discuss several Backplane and OpenID related issues.  Greg Keegstra and some others involved in Backplane are no longer with Janrain. Vidya Shivkumar is now Janrain's Backplane contact.  We do not have IPR agreements in place from all Backplane contributors.  The personnel turnover and loss of Backplane institutional memory may make it difficult to complete cleaning up the IPR process.

Don reported that some expressions of interest in foundation membership resulted from the outreach to Backplane participants, but no actual new memberships yet.

3.       Corporate Member Board Seat Election Schedule and Process
Don suggested that we conduct the corporate board election at the same time as the regular board election.  Mike said that we could use the time between now and then to talk that up.

4.       EC Proxy Policy
Eric Sachs would like a mechanism to designate Adam Dawes as an alternate representative on the Executive Committee for times that he can't attend.  We should clarify this in a general way.  We will take this up at the upcoming board meeting.

5.       myopenid.com Discussion
Janrain announced that they will close down myopenid.com on February 1, 2014. We should remove the myopenid.com button from our membership page in our Janrain Engage configuration.  We will let the 26 OIDF members who use myopenid.com to log into openid.net know how to change their registered OpenIDs.

6.       Liaisons Update
Our liaison letter to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27/WG5 is ready to send.  Don and Nat will reach out to Tony Nadalin to see if he has any feedback to incorporate.

7.       Recruiting Update
Our strategy has been to try to recruit corporate members from working group participants.  That still seems like a reasonable strategy, despite the results from the Backplane outreach being underwhelming.

8.       501(c)(6) Filing Status
We have made our 501(c)(6) filing and are awaiting a response from the U.S. Government.

9.       Trademark Policy
We have done the legal work to publish a trademark use policy.  Tony Nadalin owes the foundation feedback on the policy from Microsoft.

10.   GSMA Identity Pilot
The GSMA is planning a verified identity jointly with the OIX and is considering using OpenID Connect.

11.   Agenda for Board Meeting at IIW
We plan to have this board meeting at 4:00-5:30 on Thursday.  We will talk about executive committee alternates and proxies.  We will discuss the next election.  We will discuss recruitment.  We will discuss the mobile identity initiative with GSMA.
