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).
Kevin: Sponsorship of Apache is a bargain. We have not changed sponsorship fees in 15 years. Time to increase them. Brett: We should try to improve the sponsorship renewal process. Bertrand: One thing to look at is to take Travel Assistance out of the budget and have it be strictly sponsored. Kevin: Fundraising is looking at having a "sponsorship drive". Sally: The "Apache Ambassador" program has started. This program gives sponsors an "executive" contact within Apache. It looks like this program is adequately staffed at the moment. The ambassadors should make regular contact with our sponsors. Possible Action Items: Increase sponsorship fees after giving current sponsors the opportunity to renew at current levels Take TAC out of budget and make it a sponsored project Improve sponsor renewal process
