Wesley Dunnington is the new board representative from Ping Identity.  Eric Schreiner of Janrain is the new board representative from Akamai. Amit Dhingra is the new board representative from PayPal.

2.       Certification Program
FAPI certification launched on April 1st.  There are currently two completed FAPI certifications, with more organizations testing.

OBIE plans to deprecate their certification suite in September.  The UK banks have to recertify in September.

Mike hopes to have people test some of the logout tests, which are currently in alpha release, during IIW.

We have a robust and enthusiastic certification team with backups for all roles.  The whole team will gather in person at EIC.

3.       Federation Specification
Roland Hedberg and Anders Solberg did a major update to the Federation spec.  We need reviews.

4.       Liaison Update
Torsten Lodderstedt met with the Berlin Group last week.  FAPI went on record about security aspects of the Berlin Group's redirect flow.  There will be a meeting between the Financial Data Exchange (FDX) board and the OpenID board at Identiverse.  The FDX press release went out earlier this month.  Don is talking with banking groups in Australia and New Zealand.

5.       Libraries Program
Adam just returned to Google from his leave.  Adam is now working on resourcing our existing libraries efforts.

George talked about the need to develop a governance model for our libraries.  For instance, a minimum number of committed maintainers are needed for each library.  We discussed wanting to have the maintainers be actively involved in the working group.  George and Adam will put together a proposal.

6.       Upcoming Meetings
There will be a board meeting on May 15th at EIC.
