This was extracted (@ 2023-08-30 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.
WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
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).
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.
