I’m getting caught up at the office (finally)…this summer nearly killed me (If anybody ever says the words Active Directory migration and Exchange migration, run away).  Anyway, I’d like to bring our technical discussion back up for more discussion, so here’s the motion…

I move that the Board create two positions: Head Technical Coordinator and Head Programmer.  These positions, in conjunction with the existing Data Coordinator position, would be responsible for technical aspects of the GCD.

The Head Technical Coordinator position would be the technical lead for the GCD with two equal subsidiary positions:  Data Coordinator and Head Programmer.

The Head Programmer would be responsible for all application development for the GCD.

Per our earlier discussion, I believe we already have members in mind for these positions (Lionel as Head Technical Coordinator and Henry as Head Programmer), but Im not certain if formal nominations should be made with this motion.

Also, do we need to revisit the description for the Data Coordinator position at this time?

Will

I'd suggest doing away with the data coordinator and HTC, HP, and DBA
(Database Administrator).

Rather than acknowledging the motion (and I think Jim had a similar motion last week also) then decide we have to kill the motion because we want to change the wording, can we discuss first?

Personally, I kinda like the idea Jamal proposed with Lionel being the board liason and with the other two positions reporting to him.

Of course, this all is based on Lionel wanting to do the job, which I don't think anybody has actually asked him.

I'll be online sporadically for the next 1 1/2 weeks. During the weekdays I'm online but nights and weekends I probably won't be. After the 22nd I'm back online most nights and on the weekends.

I don't really have an opinion on the matter yet. Mostly because I have my doubts that things will get any different with the new positions.

my best

The chair recognizes the motion. Do we have a second?

(and this is basically the same motion that Jim was after, but this was laid out a bit more specific).

Did anybody second Will's motion? I can't find evidence of it. Did I miss it somewhere along the line in the deluge of email this week?

OK, I thought I had a second. I'm a bit scatter brained with some stuff going on in the "real world".

So, we had several days to discuss, and discussed earlier. So we can vote on this also, Lou. That makes two votes we have going on, this one and one to table the other motion and send it to the Sr. Editors on one-panel cartoons.
