This was extracted (@ 2024-01-04 18:10) 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.

WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
This is due to changes in the layout of the source minutes over the years. Fixes are being worked on.

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).

Public Policy Position

21 Jun 2023

 Discussion on the creation of a public policy position.

 Planned workflow/change:

 We proactively plan to listen for legislative/regulatory/standards activity
 that would impact the ASF, our project communities, or our users in
 jurisdictions that the Board prioritizes.

 If VP Public Policy identifies something that does have impact, they will
 highlight that issue and bring it to the board with a proposed position that
 the ASF may want to hold.

 If the Board agrees with the policy position and that the issue will impact
 the ASF the Board may choose to authorize engagement/education.

 We may choose to engage a service that collates activity for us to be aware
 of. (Potential incremental budget ask coming in the future)

 This will ensure that there is a single owner inside the Foundation that owns
 our engagement on public policy issues.

 Things we won't do:

 Have non-ASF folks speaking on behalf of the Foundation.

 Proactively engage with the public sector sans board sanction.
