Discussion of Agenda Items:
Review the Agenda for the Board FTF Meeting at IIW
Mike requested that "Specs Council Appointment" be added to the agenda for the FTF board Meeting.  Don then discussed each of the planned agenda items for the FTF Board meeting as follows:
- Verizon Board Membership Changes (Don)
- Marketing Committee Report (Eric)
- WG Reports:
- Connect (Mike)
- Chooser (Eric)
- Native Apps (John B)
- Mobile Connect Profile (David Pollington/Nat) - The working group has been formed.  The GSMA is still working through IPR issues for it to make contributions.  Also, we are waiting for GSMA confirmation of the Mobile Connect Profile workshop to be held at the Asia Mobile Expo in Shanghai, China.
- Liaison Update (Nat/Tony) - The board email voting results approved Tony as the appointed liaison representative.
- Planned Events Update (Don)
- Recruitment Update (Don) - the FIDO Alliance is impacting our recruiting efforts and forcing a change in the membership messaging/sales strategy.  The reality is that there is a finite pie of membership prospects and money for many companies.  Don will be meeting tomorrow with Intel, who has shown a renewed interest in joining.  They are also meeting with Janrain to see if they will upgrade to sustaining membership level and to discuss the OIDF website in regard to adding OpenID Connect functionality and other improvements to their products.
- Self-certification (Don/Tom S) - Tom and Don will share with the board an updated self-certification presentation based on the feedback they have been receiving.  All the core pieces of what is needed have been identified and now what is needed is to assemble the parts in a cohesive whole.  The Connect working group is working with Roland Hedberg on technical certification tools.  Mike offered that the Connect WG have been using Roland's testing software for about 2 years with approximately 15-20 implementations and that this software could be used as the foundation of a self-certification testing program.  Nat stated that the test software is for the protocols and that certifying "operational" characteristics (the example he used was the management system) is also something we should consider.  We are currently assuming the self-certification will be for products and services, not deployments.  Security and privacy aspects will also need to be considered.  The EC agreed that the details will need to be worked out in future meetings.

Nat asked for the FY2014/15 budget status update.  John B and Don have the action to get together to discuss the proposed budget.
