Community-led development "The Apache Way"
This was extracted (@ 2021-06-16 22:10) from a list of minutes
which have been approved by the Board.
Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.
Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).
Chairman Vice Chairman President Executive Vice President Treasurer Secretary The Treasurer and Secretary are responsible for appointing their Assistants, with input and advice from the Board. Sam is (constantly) looking to be replaced in his many positions, but is willing to continue as long as there are no qualified volunteers. Sam has been caretaker as Treasurer but has not much experience. Chris Mattmann has loaded the books into Quicken and has expressed interest in becoming the Treasurer. He was appointed perforce. Hadrian has been active in looking at the books and will manage the audit, separate from the office of Treasurer. Craig L Russell has tried to get assistants to take up some of the workload of Secretary, with the intent to appoint an assistant, and eventually be replaced once the assistant is comfortable in the role. But to date none of the volunteers has done more than subscribe to the secretary mail alias. Regarding the EVP role: is it necessary? The bylaws require it; the EVP acts for the President in his absence; there is no other defined task, and there is normally nothing to do. What about a board member taking EVP? Some in the membership want to have fewer board == executive officer appointments, and have expressed that the President should act as a non-voting director. It is an advantage to have the EVP be the face of Apache in different time zones. Ross Gardler volunteered and was appointed as the EVP. Greg noted that the Vice Chair title is useful for fundraising. He was appointed as Vice Chair. The Vice Chair should be added to the chairman@ alias. The EVP should be added to the president@ alias. The Board unanimously approved the executive officer appointments: Chairman Douglass Cutting Vice Chairman Greg Stein President Jim Jagielski Executive Vice President Ross Gardler Treasurer Chris Mattmann Assistant Treasurer Sam Ruby Secretary Craig L Russell Assistant Secretary Sam Ruby
