ISAS Board Meeting

December 5, 2005


The meeting was called to order by Ed Hannevig at 6:00 PM.  Present were: Andy Andersen, Ed Hannevig, Mike Pongracz, Ken Hardwick, Harry Malette, Robert English, and Carole Gabel.  Ray Costello attended as a visitor.


The first order of business was to elect a new president since John Conley had resigned before the end of his term.  The minutes of the previous meeting, back in July, had been sent out in the 7S5 Users Flyer but no one had a copy of it at this time.  Carole Gabel made the motion that Ken Hardwick be nominated to be the chairman, since he had replaced John Conley when he resigned from the North Annex at the same time.  There was some discussion after that about the function of ISAS relative to proactive issues.  There was also some discussion about the ODA Board having had a complete turnover of members so there is no representation other than that we represent ourselves.  After this discussion ran its course, Ed Hannevig seconded Carole's motion to elect Ken Hardwick as chairman of ISAS.  All approved by voice vote.  Next for discussion was the creation of a vice-chair position, which seemed like a good idea.  Carole then made the motion that Ed Hannevig be nominated the vice-chair for ISAS, and Harry Malette seconded. 


The only other item on this meeting agenda was the endorsement of the informational meeting which was to occur this evening.  There was lots of discussion about this, including the consequences of the hangar area to the south being annexed into the city.  Guest Gary Van Horn suggested that a paid professional presence may be necessary if our interests are to be represented, and this started more threads of discussion.  One of the topics raised was the time-lag in information getting to members since only approved minutes are posted on the web site. Mike Pongracz made the motion that draft minutes be posted on the ISAS web site, in addition to the already-posted approved minutes, so that non-attending members could be more current.  Carole Gabel seconded.  All approved by voice vote.


The meeting was adjourned at 6:43 PM.


Respectfully submitted by Robert English, recording secretary
